I've been listening to her since she released her EP and have been waiting anxiously for her album to become available in the United States.

Great music!

To say she is very talented is an understatement. I happened upon her songs on Spotify and saw some live video from YouTube. Hope to see her breakout with this album and see more from her in the future!

Really want to support more artists like her

I first found her from her performance at the Stephen Colbert show and she was fantastic!

Really unique, love her voice and musical style. I really hope she keeps breaking new grounds and experiment with different musical genres.

Her music videos are great as well!

About Jain

French pop singer Jain has earned acclaim for her vibrant multicultural style influenced by the many places she has called home. Growing up in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and the Congo, she soaked up the distinctive musics and cultures of these locales. By her teens she was combining Arabic and African rhythms with electronics and dance music production that also spoke to her Parisian sophistication. It was a distinctive sound, rife with urban style and political awareness, that helped build her fan base online and win her plaudits for her debut album, Zanaka, which went gold in 2016 and earned a nomination at France's Victoires de la Musique awards.

Born Jeanne Galice in Toulouse, France in 1992, Jain had roots in Madagascar (her mother is half Malagasy) and moved to Dubai at age nine and then the Congo during high school, where she began experimenting with music, notably with producer Mr. Flash. After graduation, she returned to Paris for art school. Along the way, she latched onto the music from these areas of her youth -- such as French techno, Arabic percussion, and the rhythms of Africa -- and combined them into her own style.

She released her debut EP, Hope, in 2015. Produced by French singer/songwriter Yodelice, Hope included the singles "Come" and "Makeba," about South African singer and civil rights icon Miriam Makeba. These songs caught the ear of Jaden Smith, which led to radio play on his Beats 1 radio show and increased her international exposure. Her full-length debut LP, Zanaka, was released at the end of 2015 and was certified gold in France in February 2016. She also earned a nomination for Album Révélation at France's Victoires de la Musique awards. Several non-album singles followed, including 2017's "Dynabeat" and 2018's "Alright." ~ Neil Z. Yeung
