PRINCE SWANNY, the breakout star of Trinidad & Tobago’s explosive TriniBad dancehall scene, has shared the video for his latest single, “Govern.”
“Govern” (Stream HERE) is the first single from Swanny’s upcoming sophomore album, Swanology, coming soon through the artist’s own ZTEKK Records and Roc Nation’s new distribution company, Equity Distribution (EQ).
With over 200 million views of his videos on YouTube and 235,000 monthly listeners on Spotify, PRINCE SWANNY is one of the Caribbean’s most listened-to and influential young artists.
The 24-year-old known to fans as Swan Dann helped pioneer and popularize TriniBad, or zesser music — a youth movement blending dancehall, trap and island swagger that’s unique to Trinidad & Tobago — in recent years.
Street anthems like “Go Fi Dem,” “Brother Brother” and “Dreams” invigorated the dancehall scene in Trinidad and other Caribbean islands, heralding the arrival of a fresh, youthful and often controversial spin on the Jamaica-originated sound and culture. In 2021, PRINCE SWANNY released his debut album, Serenity, as his definitive hit “Catch 22” took the TriniBad sound worldwide.
Swanny’s growing profile overseas has led to collaborations with Jay Critch, Skillibeng and French dancehall star Kalash to name a few, and appearances on Sway in the Morning, Hot 97, BBC1Xtra and Hot Ones: Caribbean Edition. Drake, Burna Boy, Bobby Shmurda, Kodak Black, Sean Paul, Big Boogie, Trinidad James and Popcaan are among those he counts as supporters and fans.
Look out for more new music from PRINCE SWANNY this summer as the countdown to Swanology begins.
