Rapper Raftaar and pop singer Akasa have released their first collaboration, Naiyyo. Directed by Vishal Handa, the music video is a light-hearted take on millennial romance. The track outlines the break-up and patch-up between Akasa and her unsuspecting boyfriend played by Shivam Bhaargava. Raftaar enters the song as a love guru who comes to their rescue.

“I wrote Naiyyo in January 2019,” Akasa shares. “The vibe was that of a girl making a drunk call to her ex to complain and throw a tantrum. Once I wrote both its verses, my team at Sony Music India and I realised that there was something missing. That’s when Raftaar came to our minds.”

On featuring in the track, Raftaar adds, “It is a light-hearted quirky song about everyday quarrels between a couple presented with a lot of pop visuals and over-the-top drama. In modern-day relationships, a lot of needs and issues remain unsaid and couples don't freely express what they really want during fights and keep their emotions bottled up. I love being a part of new things and this felt really new.”
