French born world music singer Yann Selo is seeking to break into the Jamaican music market with his latest collaboration with hot dancehall star Ce’Cile. The song called Call Me was produced at Big Yard in Jamaica with the video shot in France.
Call Me is the first single off Yann Selo’s sophomore album Melting Pot which is slated for an October 2011 release. Yann Selo describes the album as a melting pot between Reggae, Dancehall, Zouk and R&B. The video for Call Me was shot in France and directed by Arthur Valverde with Choreography by Sisley Loubet.

So far the French singer has worked with Christopher Birch for a song called Rain on my Window. And will soon be releasing the second single off his album called You Got It with Elephant man the video for which will be shot in August 2011.
Yann Selo believes that his collaborations with Jamaican artistes will bear fruit: “I consider my music as a melting pot of different types of sounds. I am a big fan of reggae music and I believe that Jamaican artistes are some of the best in the world which is why I decided to do these collaborations which have been very popular in Paris and in French Guiana”.
Look out for Yann Selo as he continues to bring the music of the Caribbean together.
