X Factor stars collab with Beenie Man
United Kingdom 'X Factor' sensations Reggie 'N' Bollie have landed a collaboration with the 'King of dancehall', Beenie Man.
The song, On the Floor, was released late last month and will be the lead single on their album Uncommon Favours, to be released in the coming weeks.
In an interview with the international media earlier this week, the duo said they were excited about the new track and described the opportunity of working with Beenie Man as "a dream come true".
"This collaboration with Beenie Man is a dream come true for us. He's been a source of inspiration in our music style, and we are so privileged to have had the legend and Dancehall King Beenie on this track," they said. "The track showcases our reggae dancehall style, which embodies the unique sound of our music. We are so looking forward to making a bold statement as real and authentic artists with this song."
Reggie 'N' Bollie became household names in the UK after finishing as runners-up, mentored by judge Cheryl, on Series 12 of The X Factor in 2015.
After signing with Simon Cowell' Syco Music label in January 2016, the pair released its smash hit New Girl, which peaked at number five in the UK iTunes Charts and number 26 on the Official UK Charts.
In January of this year, the duo parted ways with Syco Music and formed its own independent label. According to sources, their own label allows the duo to connect more with their reggae and dancehall roots.
