HEAR THIS: Skinny Banton "Jab Behavior"

New Single Causing A Soca Frenzy

The song, “Jab Behavior” is creating a hysteria well in advance of the upcoming Carnivals in Trinidad and Tobago and Carriacou.  The song contains a tantalizing riddim produced by Hector “Legz” Thomas and  Skinny Banton signature vocals.  In the song, he uses his native tongue with deep vocals to describe  jab culture.  In 2011, Skinny Banton won his first People’s Choice title and then consecutively in 2012 and 2013. He won the 2012 Soca Monarch Competition in the Tri-state of Grenada, Carriacou and Petit Martinique, and in 2013 he was crowned the Road March King. The sky is the limit as this artist continues to distinguish himself on a international level with his songs. Audio After The Jump
