The singer further added, “Then I get a call from Xulfi three months that he has a song for me. In my wildest imagination, I had no idea. But the conversation with him [Xulfi] just started and I got so inspired and it made me realize that Coke Studio season 1 started and I was a part of it as Strings. Moving forward came season 7 when we were part of the production and now season 14. If I’m getting an opportunity for a career again, then there’s something divine.”
‘This song is about memories’ – Xulfi

But he didn’t stop and created amazing tracks. On Phir, Milenge Xulfi said, “‘Phir Milenge’ is a song about memories when someone has gone from your life but is still in your heart and soul. And where does the story end? On a new day, when we meet again.”
Another debutant, who joined Xulfi in creating some great music this season Associate producer Abdullah Siddiqui penned down final words after the release of the final track. ” I will never forget when I played the demo for “Phir Milenge” for @youngstunnersofficial for the first time.
@zulfiqarjkhan and I already knew at that point that this song was special and that it would be the one we end the season with. @talhahanjum and @talhahyunus had delivered what I honestly believe is some of their best work. The energy in that darkened room when those last few piano notes rang out was so utterly still and so heavy.
We all looked at each other, and we all knew this song meant a lot to all of us. And then a couple of months later, @faisalkapadia blessed it with his iconic voice, and emotionally supercharged it just when we thought it couldn’t get any more emotional.”
Abdullah specifically mentioned that peaceful piano notes and darkness in the room made this song special which let the whole team feel it special. He also debuted in Coke Studio with Atif Aslam as well.
