Press Release



Three years ago Jain released her debut album Zanaka – success may have arrived overnight, but Jain’s joyous, sun-soaked, rhythm-driven sound had been brewing for years, collecting influences from multiple countries and a myriad of musical genres – Arabic percussion, African rhythms, electro, reggae, soul and hip hop among them. As the petite singer succinctly puts it: “It happened fast, very fast.”

Now a true ambassador for multi-cultural Pop, Jain is back with her new single “Alright”, a skillful-as-ever blend of all of her influences combined into a break-up song infused with the freshness that we’ve come to know her for.

Led by hit songs “Come” and “Makeba,” her debut album Zanaka was an instant Pop classic, not only in France but also across the border in the 18 countries lucky enough to feel her energy and presence on stage.

In Canada, Jain has amassed over 12.7M combined audio and video streams for her album Zanaka and 4.5M total audio and video streams for breakout single “Come,which climbed to the Top 5 on the BDS radio charts in Quebec.  Her second single “Makeba” was heavily supported by CBC and was featured in a global Levi’s Jeans ad campaign.
