His next single, Boom Boom features Daddy Yankee, French Montana, and Dinah Jane of Fifth Harmony and was released on October 27th 2017. He says, Boom Boom is the perfect title for this song because “…it is an explosion of positive energy, which the world needs at this time. Hearing the track makes you want to dance and forget about all the craziness happening in the world right now, and I feel very blessed to have all these amazing artists on my song including Daddy Yankee, Dinah Jane, and French Montana. Filming in Morocco was very special because it is the place I was born and grew up. To see Daddy Yankee, Dinah Jane, and French Montana, as well as Amanda Cerny and all the other amazing social media influencers enjoying Morocco and describing it as an experience of a lifetime was very rewarding for me. The video shows just a small fraction Morocco’s beauty. There is so much more to explore. Maybe in the next video?”
RedOne’s success did not happen overnight, but his unique sound has made lasting marks on the world of music.
