Ali Haider’s ‘Purani Jeans’ is more than just a song for Pakistanis, it has for long been recognized as the Anthem of Pakistani Youth given its immense popularity and the relatability it has with the youth of the country.
Even today Purani Jeans is so popular that it can easily be heard playing in car and home stereos. Even aspiring musicians make it a must to cover Purani Jeans.
Today Ali Haider shared an official remix of Purani Jeans which he did with DJ Akash Rohira about 3 years ago and it started a debate amongst his fans.
With the new club mix remix, it seems Ali Haider is trying to reach out to the new generation of youth who have completely different musical tastes from the youth of the 90s. Given the pop/soft rock nature of the original song, the remix has been met by mix reactions from the listeners.
