Vin Diesel, the Hollywood star, says ‘Calm Down‘, a song by Rema, the Afrobeats singer, is his favourite song at the moment.


The film star spoke at the European Gala for ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy: Vol 3’, the Marvel Studios film, held in Paris. The second sequel of the movie franchise is set to be in theatres from May 5.

Asked about his favorite song at the moment, the actor said his daughter influenced him into liking ‘Calm Down’ because she loves to sing it around the house.

“I have to say this. My daughter Pauline, who is eight years old runs around the house, going ‘Calm Down, Calm Down’. You know Rema?” he asked.
