Coke Studio 2020 released a line-up of three songs last week and Pakistanis did not seem very excited with what the show’s season opener had to offer.

That wasn’t a good coke studio 2020 first episode 😭😭😭😭😭— Noor Inam (@noorinam1) December 4, 2020
Of course not everyone was as critical. The show has a huge following of diehard fans who went all out to cheer for the show!
Dil Khirki has definitely opened a new window in Pakistani music industry. Kudos to Coke Studio and @rohailhyatt sahab for bringing new talent like Mehdi Maloof on big screens. The guy deserves a round of applause!#CokeStudio2020 https://t.co/9a9OA7IJFE— Ctt.Agency (@CttAgency) December 4, 2020

Coke Studio 2020 opened with an all-women anthem, Na Tuttya Ve, featuring Fariha Pervaiz, Sanam Marvi, Meesha Shafi, Zara Madani, Wajiha Naqvi and Sehar Gul Khan.
Meesha Shafi's rap received a lot of love from the fans!
