“The momentum that is going to give the artist is going to be huge,” said American Singer and songwriter Khalid about the launch.
Other artists to feature in the video included Rina Sawayma, Anitta, Rosalia, The Kid Lorai, Finneas, Bille Ellish, Camilo, Lous and Yakuza, Mr Eazi.
South Korean band Black Pink said that Spotify helps them reach out to “fans from around the world, instantly”.
Soon after the announcement, the platform also posted for the first time on their Instagram page created for Spotify Pakistan.
The account was created in November last year, the first signal that it may soon be coming to the country, much to the delight of music lovers.
However, the company had remained silent about their launch since then and had not issued any updates or descriptions.
A day later, however, Pakistani singer Shamoon Ismail confirmed that the Swedish-based streaming platform would be launching in Pakistan in the near future.
