Paille, considered one of the pillars of francophone reggae and dancehall, is gearing up for a release later this summer featuring Grammy-nominated reggae singer Etana.
Paille, who has previously collaborated with local acts Konshens and Anthony B, shared that his connection with Etana was made prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, and resulted in a song that was put on a shelf many years ago.
He was encouraged to revisit his shelf based on the regional response to his most recent release, Run Di Town.
“People from the music industry in Barbados, Trinidad, St Lucia, Haiti and Jamaica were given time to actually see what we do and were eager to start doing things with us. I imagine this time was, for many other artistes, a way to take a better jump forward,” the French performer told popular Jamaican media house.
Written and sung in French, Run Di Town was released in January with English and Spanish subtitles, and has already amassed half a million views.
