PRINCE Reignn believes the time is right for another St Thomas deejay to be counted among dancehall royalty.

“I want to put Bath, St Thomas, on the map in the world of dancehall. That is where the Bath Fountain is...the artiste Natty King is from Bath, but he is a reggae artiste. In the world of dancehall, I want to represent for my community on the international stage,” he said.

He also said top-tier singjay Popcaan is from that parish.

Prince Reignn may be on the verge of achieving this with the release of the video for his single, Norbrook, which was released on the Life-Style Entertainment label in June 2016. The video makes references to a near-fatal motor vehicle crash he survived two years ago.

“The scene with the motor vehicle accident is intense. It shows people taking me from a car in an unconscious state, but the whole vibe is about upliftment and the realisation of dreams. My narrative is to inspire everyone who has ever been counted out, anyone who has ever suffered but who wants to transcend that pain and accomplish great things in their life,” he said.

Prince Reignn (given name Orayne Graham) was born on November 21, 1993. He grew up in the New Road District of St Thomas. He attended Bath Primary and Junior High School where he excelled at music and football. Once he left school in 2012, Prince Reignn began to work on honing his craft, and in 2013 he recorded his first single Top Song. Two years later, he was signed by Life-Style Entertainment.

“Right now, the advance buzz on the Norbrook video is great, everyone is saying my career is about to take off,” he said.

Earlier this year, Prince Reignn organised a back-to-school treat for his community.

“I don't have a problem giving, but the thing is, there are other entertainers who are more established inna the business more than me. If me can go inna my pocket and ask fi little sponsors and better my parish, then why other entertainers who are more established than me can't do something like that?” he asked.

He plans to release follow-up singles Hello Mommy and Break the Curse.
