West Indies cricketer Chris Gayle has now entered the field of music as he has collaborated with British Indian singer Avina Shah on a dance track titled “Groove.”
The song ‘Groove’ has achieved over 1.1 million views on YouTube since its release two weeks ago.
Gayle told IANS, “I find it very enjoyable. I’ve grown up surrounded by music and sport – it’s a big part of our Jamaican culture and it’s in our blood,”
“I was excited about doing this project and creating a song that anyone can listen and groove to – it is an international sound with a mix of Jamaica, India, and the UK.”
He further told the news source about his experience in music, “We really enjoyed putting it together and managed in a very short space of time. It was all done over the phone – a lot of WhatsApp messages back and forth to plan it out. But it worked out perfectly.”
“I released a remix song with Stylo G called Too Hot during the lockdown and now, Groove is my first collaboration with a female artist. I had fun making this track and the response has been really great,” said Gayle. “I’ve also just set up my music label, so we plan to launch more songs in the near future in various genres.”
Gayle has earlier released a remix song titled “Too Hot” with Stylo G.
