“Switching Lanes” is a masterpiece of Bollywood style Indian vocals, and hard hitting drops. Maximus and Tilka create suspense and energy with an elongated transition which flows into a head nodding rap verse and smooth bass drop. For this song Maximus stated that, “The 2nd drop, lyrics were actually recorded by a LA-based rapper called V3RB that was supposed to be on one of the track ‘Sorry’. We thought it wasn’t really suiting the track so we scrapped it and used some parts of his verse for “Switching Lanes.”
