Jain is a multicultural pop artist influenced by the many places she has called home. Born in Toulouse, France, with roots in Madagascar, she relocated to Dubai at the age of 9 and then onto the Congo during secondary school. This is where she first began experimenting with music under the direction of Mr. Flash. Post graduation she returned to Paris to study the arts. Her music utilises a variety of influences such as, French techno, Arabic percussion, and the rhythms of Africa, to create her unique style.
Jain released her first debut EP 'Hope' in 2015, featuring the singles 'Come' and 'Makeba'. 'Come' reached number one on the French singles chart and is certified Diamond in France. 'Makeba' was inspired by Miriam Makeba, a South African singer and civil rights leader, and received a Grammy nomination for its music video, filmed in South Africa. 'Come' and 'Makeba' were later included on Jain's debut studio album Zanaka, released in November 2015. The album was produced by French singer/songwriter Yodelice and is certified 3x Platinum in France. A deluxe version of Zanaka was released in November 2016, with more songs, including the single Dynabeat.
On 25 May 2018, Jain released 'Alright' as the lead single from her second album, Souldier, which was released on 24 August 2018. The album reached number one on the French albums chart.
