For the past 2-3 days, Pakistani social media is ringing with “Eye to eye”. It is a new song by an unknown singer Tahir Shah. It has gone viral and being talked about at almost every social media platform. Not a controversial song but indeed it has something in it that make people talk about this song. To attract people’s attention either you have to make something really amazing or really bad. Both ways people discuss it. This is the case with this video. Shah, who was unknown to almost all of us just 3 days ago now is one of the most discussed people and might soon get international fame.
27th of June, this video has got viral and in just a short span of time has more than 53 thousand views. This has beaten viral video of Imran Khan’s speech in National Assembly while he was taking oath and has been uploaded for over a week. On Vimeo however this song has not performed well in the span of 2 months.
Publicity is publicity and the rule has worked here. People actually do not like the song, in fact everyone hates it and makes fun of it and that is the reason to share the song on social media and people discuss about it to make fun of the song and singer, but hey! Who cares? Fame is fame right?
Eye to Eye Video:
Even the people among us who have the worst taste in music did not happen to love the song and rather hated the song. The only thing you can do is to listen and laugh and discuss the song with your friends on social media and in real life too. Even Urdu version of the song is available along with English version and guess what Urdu version is quite better and if given a choice I would rather listen to Urdu version rather than the English version.
This shows how powerful the social media is and can turn around the fortunes of many of us in a matter of minutes.
A huge gallery of memes are available making fun of Tahir Shah’s song. Some of them are given below.
