Still working on that hot first release.



Shanta Prince, the Barbadian beauty with an ever present smile and her unique style of sound, elevates her into a category all of its own.

​Starting her career initially as a backing vocalist with the Bacchanal Time Calypso Tent, various bands and for artistes such as Rupee and Biggie Irie.

She then stepped into the limelight with two releases “Island Girl” and “Blind to See” and has never looked back. Her music journey has seen her collaborating with artistes such as Jamaican dancehall star Macka Diamond ,  and Barbados' very own Lil Rick and Peter Ram. She has  worked with a few of the best producers Soca has to offer including Barbados' Dwain “Dwaingerous" Antrobus (BassInk Productions), Trinidad's Kurtis Wells better known as London Future, and Canada's own James DePinho (Beta One Music).

Shanta has become a staple of the Crop Over Season in Barbados performing at many of the major events. Her release “Stush” not only earned her a place in the Semi Finals of the Sweet Soca competition, but also the Barbados Music Awards Female Breakthrough Artist. The success didn't stop there, she followed with her Release "Hello" which landed her a 2 year endorsement with the newly rebranded FLOW Telecommunications company. The song was not only used at home, but throughout all 14 Caribbean territories. The interest which she continues to generate cements the view that her sound is one to be heard and the journey has just begun !
