The West Indies opening batsman Chris Gayle is one of the most destructive and intimidating players in T20 cricket. A tall, imposing figure at the crease, Gayle hits a lot of sixes and is known for his aggressive batting style. He is also a prolific run scorer with an incredible record of a Twenty20 strike-rate.
The Universe Boss is now exploring his talent as a musician and has made a name for himself in the Jamaican music industry as a recording artiste. He recently released a single titled Gimme Your Love featuring Shav A, daughter of veteran Jamaican singer Admiral Tibet. The two artists have crooned, penned, and composed the song together. Gayle is a genuine music lover and enjoys listening to all genres.
Gayle has a massive following in India, hoping his new music project will help him connect with Indian fans. He feels it will be an excellent opportunity to showcase his talent in the country and is confident that fans will like the song.
Known for his big hitting and power-packed innings, Gayle has a large fan base in the Asian region, and releasing the single is part of his attempt to reach out to them. The ‘Universe Boss’ also wants to explore Bollywood and is open to doing an acting project. “Bollywood has been calling me, and it is interesting to see how the industry works,” he said.
He is excited about showcasing his musical skills in the Bollywood film industry and is keen to collaborate with talented Indian artists. He feels it will be a fantastic opportunity to learn from the professionals and grow as an artist.
It is no secret that the ‘Universe Boss’ has been a fan of Bollywood films for a long. He has been a frequent visitor to the country and has watched several movies here. He believes Bollywood is a great place for young talent to shine and wants to tap into the audience’s energy.
Gayle has taken a bold step by stepping into the world of music and hopes to replicate his past success with cricket on the music front. He is looking forward to launching his album in the coming months and is confident that it will chart on Billboards around the globe. The album, titled Tropical House – Cruises to Jamaica, features famous artists such as Lauryn Hill, Capleton, Sizzla, Jah Cure, Morgan Heritage, and new artists such as Camar and Shav A. It is produced by Sean ‘Contractor’ Edwards, who says the album will target Asia and traditional reggae markets in Canada and England. The project will be available on all major digital platforms from July 29.
