Four months ago, Badshah went live on Facebook sharing a sneak peek from the sets of the show while recording it and announced his collaboration with Jubin.
Jubin, who was awarded with Upcoming Male Vocalist 2016 at 8th Mirchi Music Awards for Bajrangi Bhaijaan's Zindagi Kuch Toh Bata, was quoted by Radio Music as saying: "The song took only 20-30 minutes to structure and it all went so smooth. The director of MTV Unplugged Season 6, Jaggi wanted me to do a show with Badshah. His idea was to come up with a piece out of the box. That is when I proposed him a folk song from my native."
