Retired track sensation Usain Bolt is eyeing dominance on another track, the music industry, with his upcoming dancehall rhythm Olympe Rose.

On Friday, Bolt posted a 25-second endorsement video on his Instagram page supporting his latest project. It featured dancehall deejays, including Ding Dong, Dexta Daps, Munga Honorable, and singer Christopher Martin in studio.

The snippet was captioned: “We changing the game!”.

It is unclear when the exact release would be, however, he hinted that it will be 'coming soon'.

Several efforts to reach him for an immediate comment were unsuccessful.

Fans were seemingly excited at Bolt's announcement, as comments flooded the post.

“It appears that Usain Bolt is the man with the Midas touch,” wrote Cynthia Pottinger.

Garfield Taylor was complimenting the beat. “Love the beat still,” he said.

“Not even know what to say, man like him (Bolt) discover new talent daily,” Romario Beck added.

The 32-year-old is renowned for his excellence in track and field and holds the title of 'The World's Fastest Man'. He is a world record holder in the 100 metres, 200 metres and 4 100 metres relay. Bolt took his leave from the track scene in 2017.

He has maintained ties within the professional sporting arena and flirted with football, having joined the Australian soccer club Central Coast Mariners in August 2018. However, by January of this year, he threw in the towel.
