This opus was a tapestry of eclectic sounds, featuring collaborations with prominent names, ensuring its mark as a significant milestone in his journey.

Come 2023, fans eagerly await the drop of « Lëpa Lëpp » – Wolof for « butterfly » – a title symbolizing metamorphosis and growth. This third solo endeavor promises an evocative musical voyage, marrying afro roots rhythms, urban vibes, and Caribbean grooves. Natty Jean’s lyrics, often profound and socially conscious, serve as a compass guiding listeners through a melange of global sounds.

Yet, Natty Jean’s evolution isn’t confined to his music alone. Recognizing the importance of autonomy and legacy, 2023 also marks the inception of his record label, SomOne Music.
