On the 8th of April 2015, Francois launched his self – titled debut solo album and kicked his solo career into gear with the release of the most poignant ballad of that year -Toe Vind Ek Jou

featuring Karen Zoid. Records caved quickly after this release. It was the first Afrikaans album and single to simultaneously jump to number 1 positions on the SA iTunes Store that year. The song was downloaded more than 20 000 times on iTunes thus achieving Platinum status as a single.
