Momina Mustehsan’s Coke Studio solo ‘Beparwah’ receives mixed reviews online
Coke Studio recently dropped ‘Beparwah’ by Momina Mustehsan, the 10th song and the only solo to feature on season 14. The song received a decent amount of praise on social media, however, it struggled to amass the hype that predecessors like ‘Pasoori’ and ‘Tu Jhoom’ did.
‘Beparwah’ is Mustehsan’s second song on season 14 after ‘Sajan Das Na’ featuring Atif Aslam and Mustehsan. It was released on March 7 on YouTube. The song has been composed by Soch the Band’s Adnan Dhool and Rabi Ahmed and has been produced by Coke Studio’s executive producer Xulfi and associate producer ActionZain.
According to Coke Studio, the song is an “intimate conversation”, calling for protection from a higher power in a moment of crisis. On Coke Studio, calls to divinity have always been a feature. ‘Beparwah’ features delicate music arrangements and Mustehsan’s soft voice pleading to the divine. Xulfi and ActionZain create the effect of the universe answering back with gusts of reverb and backup singers that sing like a heavenly chorus.
‘Beparwah’ received mixed reviews online. While some listeners expressed love for the song, for others it didn’t do much.
