Jamaican cricketer Chris Gayle, also known as the Universe Boss, is taking the world by storm, not only with his impressive batting skills but also with his passion for music. Recently, Gayle was seen proudly waving the Jamaican flag in the Middle East, where he was shooting a music video for a collaboration with Indian artist Arko.
The video was shot in the desert and also in the city, with the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, in the background. Gayle expressed his excitement about promoting Jamaican culture in the Middle East and India and collaborating with Arko, a singer, songwriter, and musical composer who has worked in the Bollywood film industry since 2012.
Gayle's previous collaboration with an Indian artist, "Jamaica To India," featuring Indian rap artist Emiway Bantai, has been a tremendous success, with over 67 million views on YouTube. Gayle's musical ventures are not limited to collaborations with Indian artists. He also headlines the album "Tropical House Cruises to Jamaica: The Asian Edition," which spent eight weeks on the New York and Florida Reggae Albums chart and peaked at number three.
Gayle's passion for music is not surprising, given his charismatic personality and love for entertaining people both on and off the cricket field. Gayle is not only a talented cricketer and musician but also a great ambassador for Jamaica, promoting its culture and heritage globally.
Arko, Gayle's collaborator on the upcoming music video, has an interesting background, having quit the medical profession to pursue a career in music and film. Arko believes that art should not be created under pressure but should be given the time and space to inspire creativity.
Gayle's collaboration with Arko is eagerly awaited by music lovers globally, and it will undoubtedly showcase the diversity and richness of Jamaican culture. Gayle's ability to transcend boundaries and bring people together through music is a testament to his talent and his commitment to promoting his country's cultural heritage.
Chris Gayle, the Universe Boss, continues to amaze the world with his talents both on and off the cricket field. His passion for music and his collaborations with artists from around the world have earned him a reputation as a global ambassador for Jamaica.
