The Assamese music video, Neta Song, an Assam election song by Axl Hazarika, became the first Assamese music video to be among the top 100 global YouTube music videos.

The political satire music video is an Assamese Electronic Dance Music (EDM) song.

It notched the 71st position in the global chart.

Earlier, the song became the first Assamese entry in the YouTube India music chart.

The music video was placed in the 19th position in the YouTube India Official Music Video chart while the song was in the 29th position in the YouTube India Music chart.

“The video is an attempt to troll the corrupt politicians of our society. Good ones get sidelined while the corrupt and cunning get the opportunities. I make metal and experimental stuff usually. Many young kids used to ask me to make a fun song,” Hazarika told Northeast Now.

The music video is directed by Axl Hazarika.

Hazarika is currently working as Digital Archive head at Jyoti Chitraban.
