Singer Naseebo Lal has said she never thought Groove Mera would become such a hit after the mixed responses received by the sixth Pakistan Super League (PSL) anthem.
The veteran singer claimed she became part of the track for Pakistan, according to Express News. I never thought it would become so popular and it is because of Allah that all this success is. I couldn’t believe it when the PCB called me. Because I’ve never before been offered an anthem,’ she confessed.
Lal also shared how she worried that the song would fail. “I was so scared that people wouldn’t like it, but they loved it and I am so grateful.” Nearly teary-eyed, because of her singing range, the singer relayed how she was confronted. The makers said, ‘In this pitch, only you can sing,’ so I did. And God has made me do so.

It is important to note here that many attacked the makers and Lal on social media following the release of Groove Mera. Memes were thrown at the singers while Lal’s singing style was ridiculed by many. However, Groove Mera was still able to strike a chord with others, written and produced by former EP frontmen Xulfi and Adnan Dhool. The combination of Lal, Aima Baig, and Young Stunners still suited the bill. But those who were not impressed easily dished out criticism.
Following this, fans of the track came to the song and Lal’s defence, including some celebrities. “Queen Naseebo Lal bringing this song to the pitch with her pitch,” singer Meesha Shafi tweeted. “She said, “I’m her biggest fan!” “I don’t know what the fuss is about?” Mehwish Hayat said. “I loved the new song. It was brave and fresh! This is what stifles our country’s creativity: we still want more of the same and are not prepared to consider anything else,” she concluded.
The song, as well as Lal’s singing, was also praised by Fatima Bhutto. “Personally, I loved it, especially Naseebo Lal.”
