Kolkata Knight Riders’ (KKR) swashbuckling all-rounder Andre Russell may be missing from the action on field, but he has a big surprise for his fans. Just like his teammate Dwayne Bravo, Russell is working on a single and he will soon come to India to shoot a video.
Russell has signed a deal with LA-based Venus Entertainment Group, which had launched the international careers of Bravo and Hindi musician Arko for a Hinglish club song.
“Cricket has always been my first love, but I am fond of singing and dancing too. We Jamaicans love music; it runs in our blood.”
Russell, who will be recoding his video with LA’s GeminiMusiq that was associated with Justin Bieber’s album, Sorry, has expressed his desire to work with either Priyanka Chopra or Deepika Padukone, in his music video.
“I even recorded the song at the same studio as Bieber. I will visit India later this month to see if I can rope in a Hindi actress for the video. I’d love to feature Priyanka Chopra or Deepika Padukone in the single. Since I am not playing cricket now, I thought it’d make sense to utilise my time constructively. That’s how I came up with idea to put together a single,” Andre Russell said.
