Coke Studio 2023 Anthem

The news comes barely a month after the release of the first original song to kick off the second season of the global music platform, which went live on 31 May. The new track, titled ‘Be Who You Are (Real Magic)’, is written and performed by Grammy-winning American songwriter and musician Jon Batiste.

“The ‘Be Who You Are (Real Magic)’ anthem and music video is a celebration of the power of staying true to yourself. It reflects on the idea that it is when people are their authentic selves and accept each other’s differences, the ‘Real Magic’ happens.”
