In December Billboard crowned her the Queen of Reggae for Water For Your Soul, her first offering in the genre.
And on Thursday Grammy-winning pop star Joss Stone kept the versatility coming when she sang an impromptu rendition of Deen & Dalal’s Eurovision 2016 song “Ljubav je” during her tour in Sarajevo.
Joss, who performed to a sold out crowd inside the National Theatre of Sarajevo on September 15, hand-picked Bosnian pop star Deen to perform with her during the concert.
“I had the privilege to spend three days with her, to show her our city and culture, and of course sing with this wonderful person,” Deen tells wiwibloggs.
“She wanted to sing in the Bosnian language and said that she likes ‘Ljubav je’, so we did it! We had so much fun together and I can say that she is such a sweet and down-to-earth person.”
“It’s not that often that a global soul diva and Grammy winner sings a Bosnian Eurovision entry that she likes. We had a great concert and amazing energy.”
It’s easy to understand why Joss would choose two-time Eurovision participant Deen to support her at the gig.
Having enjoyed success in Bosnia, Croatia, Serbia and Montenegro, this party animal has already won nine Davorins (the Bosnian correspondent to a Grammy), in categories including Best Singer, Best Album and Best Video.
Plus his fashion game is on point. He routinely transforms the streets of Sarajevo into a runway all his own. And he does that with a whole lotta business savvy: He has a degree in Fashion Business and Branding Management.
He’s also the epitome of kindness. Eager to get close to his Eurovision fans, Deen was a headline act at the Wiwi Jam at the Hard Rock Café in Stockholm last May.
