Ananya, Vector & WurlD on the new single
"Blackout" is all about taking a step back from the relentless pace of the modern world. It took me a while, but I’ve realized that life isn’t about racing to the finish line, it’s about savoring every step of the journey. I had always wanted to incorporate rap and hip hop into one of my songs, and it was awesome to work with Vector and WurlD on this. I’m a big believer that music is the ultimate global language and collaborating with artists from all over the world is a big part of that.”
"Heard Ananya for the first time on the ruff draft of ‘Blackout’ and I knew instantly she had something special. I’m honoured to be a part of this great record"
"The world needs more voices like ours and Ananya did amazing with this record. it is a pleasure to have joined voices with her and WurlD on this art piece.”
We're looking forward to the release of her album next week! Until then check out the lyric video below for "Blackout."
