Mumbai, 22nd September 2023: Indian Singer-Songwriter Ananya Birla’s popular track Caught Up has a new version now. The popular artist has collaborated with Nigerian popstar L.A.X. This is a true collaboration of two diverse cultures bound by this common factor called music. This upbeat pop release serves as a toxic relationship song that paints an intense picture of an unhealthy connection reflecting many relationships in which people are hurt by those they trust most and are unable to escape from the constraints of a conflicting situation. The track intermingles the widely popular genre Afrobeats with classical Indian instrumentation. The song is about taking ownership of your side of things in a relationship and not just blaming others or life. It’s about taking accountability for your role.
