“‘Caught Up’ is a song about getting carried away,” says Majid Al Maskati. “We have an interesting, impermanent relationship with LA. It’s a really amazing place to connect with artists. But spend too much time out here and you start losing sight of life outside of the bubble. It’s that gorgeous scenery and culture mixed with the parties, the people and the glamour that leave you caught up and drifting away from home and the ones you love the most.”
The clip for “Caught Up” finds Majid and Jordan Ullman embarking on an excursion through the outskirts of Los Angeles. Things get a little weird after they decide to take some hot sauce from a stranger, as a psychedelic trip ensues, eventually leading them to Khalid.
“We first met Khalid in LA. Like us, he is always on the go, but we managed to come back together in LA to finish the record,” adds Jordan. “Majid and I are always inspired by our surroundings, and LA has so much to offer in terms of sights and sounds. And I think we’ve all had moments where we have felt like we’re really caught up in this city. I took that energy and put it into the production. This song is a great start to the next chapter of where we’re going with our music and I’m grateful to have made a lifelong friend in Khalid.”
