In this case, all you have to do is change the region on Instagram. Using a VPN app is advisable in this case because it only changes the location of Instagram if you enable the VPN app. So activate it only when you need a song unavailable for your country. Outside of it, you can still enjoy the content of your own region by turning the VPN off. This is way more convenient.
