Spotify is the world’s largest subscription music streaming service with 320m users, across 92 countries. And it seems that the wait is finally over as Shamoon Ismail recently confirmed its launch in Pakistan.
On Monday, the Punjabi and blues singer took to his Twitter and said that Spotify, a Swedish-based audio streaming platform, would be launching in Pakistan very soon.
“I confirm Spotify is coming to Pakistan,” he wrote.

The announcement left Pakistani music fans excited and wondering whether it is official. On the other hand, Spotify created a verified Instagram account for Pakistan over the weekend, signalling that it may soon be coming to the country.
While the company has not shared any details about launching its service in Pakistan, the account has so far garnered over 16k followers on Instagram.
“Spotify Pakistan; Music for every moment. Play, discover and share for free,” the bio reads.
The big reveal has attracted a variety of reactions. While some are still waiting for the ‘official statement’…

Then there are those who don’t trust the authorities anymore. Given the recent PUBG and TikTok bans, this came as a natural response.
