French Montana an Adam Levine released a new single last Monday and for a good purpose. The song is a remix of Montana’s song ‘’Famous’’ that was included on his 2017 album ‘’Jungle Rules’’.

The Grammy-nominated artist is donating the benefits received from the single to Suubi Center, a maternity and children’s health clinic in Uganda. He confirmed that until the date the cause has raised a total of $500,000, more than 50 million Kenyan Shillings.

During an interview with CNN,Montanna said, "Me coming from Morocco in North Africa, I feel like it should be a soft spot for anyone that has a mother or a child. I think that's got to be one of the worst things, not having the right healthcare. When I went to Uganda I felt obligated to help. […] I feel like every woman and child deserves the right healthcare. It shouldn't be a privilege it should be a right."

During 2007 the Moroccan rapper travelled to Uganda to record the official video of his song ‘’Unforgettable’’, he felt so inspired that he started a wellness program in partnership with Global Citizen’s and Mama Hope, called Unforgettable Healthcare Campaign.

When the music video of ‘’Unforgettable’’ was realized, it became the talk of the world because of the awesome moves and dancing skills the Ugandan ghetto children showed up, who have also surprised again performing in the new video song of ‘’Famous’’.

"They are like my sons, my daughters, they've got a big spot in my heart ... and I just feel proud of them. They killed it, they danced, they did the choreography," Montana said during the interview.
