The reason for them singing the song together is to call for people to unite in the fight against the novel Coronavirus. Music director Kaushik Hossain Taposh made the piano track for the song.
It was then sent to the artists, and then Akhi Alamgir and Oishee recorded the song, Anondoloke Mongolaloke Satya Sundoro from their respective houses, and alongside them nine other artists have also given their voices to the song. Akhi Alamgir said, "When Taposh sent me the piano track, I loved how it sounded. I then sang along to it and recorded my parts. Oishee and the other singers then recorded their parts. In these troubling times, this initiative is surely going to give people courage."
