“Heads up for this time where fear is not a leader, where open mind is stronger, life is for lovers.”
“It’s our differences that make the richness of our souls.”
“Let’s sing for everybody now.”
At a time when the world seems horribly divided it feels like French pop wonder Jain and her song Heads Up, taken from her debut album Zanaka, is just the tonic. A song of positivity and acceptance, it sits with bouncing joy alongside her other great singles such as Makeba and Come.
Whilst Jain's already bagged a number 1 single in her homeland of France and a top 5 album both there and in Belgium, my country, the UK has yet to fully embrace her. However, it took us Brits a while to really get another unique and exciting French act - Christine & The Queens, so there’s still hope yet. Hope is the operative word here, because Heads Up brings a tale of hope and by rights we should all be on the rooftops singing and dancing to it.
This new lyric video was released today, so if you haven’t heard of Jain yet, it’s time to get acquainted. Especially you United Kingdom.
