Wes Madiko - Alane


Alane" is a song recorded by Cameroonian artist Wes. It was released in May 1997 as the debut single from his album Welenga. It became a hit, topping the charts in across Europe. It is sung in the Duala language of Cameroon[1] though the Tony Moran remix includes English lyrics ("Alane flows like a fountain, running gently to your heart. Alane dances inside me, like a flame in to your arms").

In France, the song was sponsored by TF1,[2] Fun Radio, RTL and the Malongo Coffees, while the choreography was created by American-French singer Mia Frye. The single spent ten weeks at number one remained in the top 50 for 25 weeks, ten of them at the top (and a further 9 weeks in the Top 10), and is to date the 18th best-selling single of all time in France.

The song also reached number one in Belgium (9 weeks at #1 and a further 8 weeks in the Top 10), Austria (8 weeks at #1 and a further 9 weeks in the Top 10) and The Netherlands (8 weeks at #1 and a further 8 weeks in the Top 10) as well as reaching the Top 10 in Germany (where it spent 18 weeks in the Top 10), Hungary, Ireland, Israel and Switzerland (10 weeks in the Top 10) and #11 in the UK.
