I just like it, that’s all. It’s got that whole Massive Attack vibe – unsurprising since co-writer Jonny Dollar worked on Blue Lines. I love how the vocals work together on this.
7 Seconds was number one for 16 consecutive weeks in France, and in the top three in the UK, Germany, Italy, Australia, Russia and Poland. The language that N’Dour sings in is Wolof, the Senegalese language, in addition to the more recogniseable English and French.
