Newly signed Universal Music Group artist, KAPRI returned to Trinidad and Tobago Carnival season this year.
Since her last visit in 2014 – which afforded KAPRI her much lauded international performance at the Tobago Jazz Festival alongside music heavyweights as John Legend, Earth, Wind and Fire and Tessanne Chin– the emerging Canadian-born and Trinbagonian-rooted artist has claimed the title of Universal Music Group’s newest artist, and released her chart-topping debut single.
Deeper, KAPRI’s inaugural single, amassed over 112k stream through Spotify alone, and succeeded top artists such as Justin Bieber, Migos, Gucci Mane, and Chris Brown for the #1 spot on the music platform’s Canada Viral 50 in its first week. The corresponding music video to the single was released one month later in an exclusive video premiere with Fashion Magazine. The video, which was filmed in Toronto and boasts several nods to the Trinbagonian community, and its single have gained much attention from an ever-growing fanbase, leading to a grassroots movement that has brought Deeper to top local charts and serviced to Top 40 radio rotations across the country.
KAPRI’s return to Trinidad and Tobago, allowed the self-managed artist to work with local artists and producers, and reignite her connection with her cultural roots.
