London born dancehall influenced artist Culan has announced the release of his captivating new single ‘Merengue’. The track, following his debut single ‘Easy to Love’ and his remixes and productions for the likes of Jamaican heavy weights Beanie Man, Beres Hammond and Gappy Ranks to name a few, is the perfect follow up in this breakthrough artists journey to the mainstream.
Inspired by the likes of Bob Marley, Supercat and Movado, Culan confidently merges his Jamaican heritage and influences with his West London upbringing to deliver the tropical yet perfectly balanced ‘Merengue’.
“Merengue is based on a merge of genres and culture, narrating the story of when the sun sets and the dancehall revellers come out, highlighting the endeavours of a young man seeking to captivate the attention of a beautiful lady.”
Since early 2017, Culan’s popularity has been growing organically, partly thanks to the viral success of his dancehall rendition of Ed Sheeran’s ‘Shape of You’. The cover garnered millions views and organic support from radio, across Kiss FM, Capital Xtra and BBC 1Xtra to name a few.
Details on live shows and upcoming releases to be announced soon.
