Rabat – French Montana has collaborated with American DJ Diplo, rap sensation Lil Pump and young singer Zhavia for the single “Welcome To The Party,” which will be featured in the soundtrack of the Hollywood production “Deadpool 2.”
After making a track called “Corazon” on Maître Gim’s new album, featuring the Congolese rapper himself and rap sensation Lil Wayne, Montana is taking on yet another prestigious collaboration.
The trashiest mercenary is back on the screens. When Deadpool 2 premiered, Diplo released on his Youtube channel, Monday the explosive clip “Welcome To The Party.” The clip shows sneak peeks of the Hollywood production led by Ryan Reynolds.
With beat electro and R and B heady rhythms, the result is rather successful and fits perfectly into the explosive universe of the film.
In an interview with Beats 1, French Montana, a native of Casablanca, commented on the catchy collaboration. “You know Diplo, he’s one of the best at what he do,” he said. “And it just so happened that he had this beat that he was working on. And me and Lil Pump had us doing the ‘Gucci Gang (Remix)’ and he played it for me and the way everything came together it was just magic.”
Khloé Kardashian’s ex-boyfriend is also working on a project of his own, which will feature collaborations with Chance the Rapper, Quavo, and Swae Lee.
“I already got my first and second single, I’m like 20 [tracks] in, two albums in, so I might just go mixtape or album,” the 33-year-old told Beats 1. “I have a record that I just cut—me, Chance the Rapper, and Quavo—that’s crazy. I have a record called ‘No Stylist’ that’s going to be my single. Then I have another one just like ‘Unforgettable’ with me and Swae Lee,” said the Moroccan artist.
Montana will also be busy this summer, touring in Morocco. The Moroccan-American rapper will perform at the 17th Mawazine Festival Rhythms of the World. The “Famous” singer will bring a Moroccan touch to the OLM Souissi stage, where most of Mawazine’s international artists will be performing.
Music career aside, Karim Kharbouch, as he was named at birth, has launched his first clothing collection with Moroccan influences.The rap artist created 65 Morocco-inspired pieces for the British brand boohooMAN.
The brand new collection will feature bold tropical and leopard prints, influenced by both the Mediterranean and Moroccan cultures.
