The song has been crooned, penned and composed by Arko and Chris Gayle, and directed by Rammjii Gulatii. It also features Karina Karra, an artiste from Uzbekistan. Chris said, “We Jamaican are very passionate about music and love it. It is part of our culture and we just enjoy dancing. So, when we hear a beat we naturally groove to it. We just love to have fun.” He also tried to mimic the dialogues from Hindi movies and danced to the tunes of his track.
He also added, “I believe sports and music can bring the world together. Music knows no boundaries, and our collaboration is a testimony to that belief.

A perfect Saturday night song for millennials and Gen Z”
