Chris Gayle on track with ‘Train Line’
West Indies cricketer-turned-recording artiste Chris 'Universe Boss' Gayle is staying on track musically with the release of a new single and video titled Train Line.
Gayle, who is proving that recording music is not simply a passing fad, is having fun with this dancehall and soca-inspired track.
The beat was built by Triple Century Records team member Camar Flava and was written to give fans something to dance to as parties are now being allowed again in Jamaica. With its high energy melody though, Gayle believes fans worldwide will enjoy dancing to this song.
"Everyone wants to have fun after this lockdown period, plus it's summer, so it's party season and Train Line is a party song," he said. The high energy concept translated to the video as well. It was shot on the train line that runs through Milk River in Clarendon. The video is packed with dancers just enjoying themselves as well as Gayle doing the popular dance move, Dirt Bounce.
"Dirt Bounce is the hottest move in the street right now so I had to include Laa Lee (who performs the song of the same name) and the Dirt Bounce dancers in this project as well; it's all unity in dancehall," Gayle added.
He is also happy that his global collaboration with Indian pop artiste Emiway, titled Jamaica to India, has racked up more than 36 million views since its April release. This only inspires the sportsman to continue contributing to the dancehall culture with his global influence.
"More music is on the way for sure and definitely more cricket to be played as well. Right now both music and sports give me joy so I will continue to balance both," Gayle said.
