GET YOUR DOSE OF SENSUAL FRENCH GLAMOUR WITH “BOUGÉVIE” BY JUST LEILA X PROMETHIUS DA’ GREAT
Bonjour mes amis! If you’ve completely devoured the new season of Emily in Paris, then you will LOVE Just Leila X Promethius Da’ Great newest hit single “Bougévie”. It’s decadent French glamour combined with modern and sexy electro-pop tunes. Bougévie is a made-up word that brings together the French words ‘Bouger’ and ‘Vie’ to create ‘Bouge et Vie’ translated to move (or dance) and live. Dancing is life and life is a dance. They are one.
Just like Mindy from Emily in Paris, Morrocco – born pop-diva Just Leila knows how to put on a show with her killer vocals and stunning appearance. Her song created together with singer/songwriter, and sound designer Promethius Da’ Great is about that moment of joy and freedom when you discover that every second that you are alive you are choosing how to move in this life, in this body, in this time and space: even if it’s just in the smallest ways, like dancing.
“To write Bougévie I needed to forget about who I was and become that ecstatic feeling you get when you play. I think that the whole world could use some more play in their lives. And one of the biggest things about play is self-abandonment.”
Initially, Promethius Da’ Great created this playful beat with nothing in mind but the desire to musically stretch and test his limits, to explore new sounds. And when Just Leila heard the beat, she felt immediately called to vocally paint its story. Both Pro Da’G and Just Leila share a background in jazz and a love of Afrobeats.
Put on your craziest couture wear and take a stroll through your city immersed in the tantalizing beats of “Bougévie” while living out your best influencer stranded in Paris fantasy!
