Each country and each region has its own unique language. India in itself has hundreds of languages. There is however one language that is universally appreciated and understood. That is the language of music! Irrespective of the people behind a certain song, each song aims to evoke a specific emotion. It can either make you dance like nobody is watching, or make you sob like a baby. It is not the words or the language that make music what it is; it’s the story and intention of the musicians. As the Internet era grows exponentially in today’s day and age, collaborations are no longer restricted by global barriers. A beautiful, global production of the virtual collaboration of Akash Baghla, with Lauv, has taken the internet by storm. Over a Zoom call, Aksh created a Hindi mashup of “Love Somebody”, one of Lauv’s latest hits, and sang it to him to see how he would react. Here is all you need to know about the super fun mashup of this song with a bunch of Bollywood hits.

The journey from making covers to collaborating with an international sensation

Aksh is an Indie Mashup star who is loved for his amazing covers on YouTube. The 24-year-old went viral for the first time in his Indian Edition of 1 Guy, 30 Voices.

This is a mashup of Love Somebody with Bollywood songs such as “Tujhe Kitna Chahne Lage Hum”, and “Tere Bin Nahi Lagda Dil Mera Dholna“. The mashup is so seamless, it almost sounds like an entirely new and original song. The song takes you into the homes of both the amazing musicians and gives the video a personal touch. The song is the perfect road trip track to enjoy with the windows down and uncontrollable hair. The video also includes some interesting insights about what Lauv’s idea was behind the video of Love Somebody. Lauv also thanked his Indian fans for all the love, and promised to be back in India when it’s safe with some new and exciting music! You have to check out this video on YouTube!

Here is what Aksh has to say about his experience

Lauv is a sweetheart! I wanted to make a Hindi version of his song because he told me he loves hindi music when we collaborated last year and also commented on my last year’s Hindi/English mashup of his song ‘I’m so Tired‘. When I started singing on the video call, the way he was vibing with the mashup was so special to me. We both had super fun doing this!

He even said that he would love to hear more of my music, which was very special and meant a lot to me coming from someone that I look up to.

At such a young age, so early on in his career, the talent has achieved so much. We are so happy to be exploring and sharing so much new talent and content with so much potential. We hope for many more such collaborations in the future!
