Highly acclaimed West Indian cricketer, Chris Gayle is venturing into the entertainment world.
The Jamaican cricketer, whose also known as ‘Crampy’, will debut his lyrical prowess on a new song scheduled to hit the airwaves.
The single will be a promotion for a dance called the ‘Chris Gayle Cover Drive’, invented by G-Unit dancer Zinga.
According to Zinga, the dance came about after seeing the success of his close friend on the cricket pitch and the ensuing celebratory ritual. Zinga, who is a former cricket player himself, also revealed that the dance was influenced by both Gayle and the mega-popular ‘Gangnam Style’ dance.
The single has not yet been recorded but Gayle is expected to record his part of the song before departing for the much-anticipated Bangladesh tour. Since neither Gayle nor Zinga are known for their musical abilities, the song should definitely be an interesting one.
According to Zinga, the video for the single will be shot when Gayle returns to Jamaica and will feature fellow cricketers Marlon Samuels, Dwayne Bravo, Wavell Hinds and Daren Powell, alongside Gayle.
Gayle gained new fame for his jubilant performance of the Gangnam Style dance which has become a viral sensation.
Gangnam Style was invented by Korean producer turned rapper/pop star PSY. The song is currently in the No. 2 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
