Spotify launches its first national campaign in Pakistan with “Jaisa Mood Waisi Dhun”
Spotify has launched its first national marketing campaign titled “Jaisa Mood Waisi Dhun”. The campaign celebrates the power of music and how it connects listeners with their feelings, mood and the world around them, and Spotify is the platform through which it all happens.
Spotify entered Pakistan in February 2021, and since then the platform has been able to strike a deal with Pakistani listeners. With access to over 82 million songs and 4 billion playlists available for free, Spotify’s campaign shines a light on how music can transform any moment, from the mundane to the most exciting, through the emotional power of a song or playlist.
The new campaign, “Jaisa Mood Waisi Dhun”, features a series of three TV commercials showcasing a wide range of Pakistani talent, from iconic Thongs to Pakistan’s hottest hip hop duo, Young Stunners. The campaign also features “Peechay Hutt” by Hasan Raheem, Justin Bibis and Talal Qureshi, a song that speaks to the next generation of creators and sounds. Every television commercial celebrates a cultural insight that is uniquely Pakistani.
Starring Young Stunners, the dynamic rap duo of Talha Anjum and Talhah Yunus, and Faisal Kapadia, the creative film shows how Gen-Zs turn to music to enhance any given experience.
