Trinidadian artist Kalpee made waves last year with his first release "No One" and again with "What About Us" both distributed by SONY Music. The songs collectively gained over 12 million views and streams and a following in places such as Germany, Taiwan, Singapour, Philippines, Australia, Malaysia, Japan, Dubai, Brazil and the Caribbean to name a few.
Kalpee who is based between London and Trinidad released his third song " Colourful" and has already gaining momentum and nearing 100K views after just two weeks.
"One of the most magnetic artists to emerge from the Caribbean in many years." a release from Sony Music stated.
"Whether on a beach, a stage, a crowded party or at home with friends and family, “Colourful” is a vibrant uplifting soca-infused pop record inspired by the goodness and positivity of one of the Caribbean’s most beautiful islands. Written and produced by Kalpee, the song lyrics and melody reflect the colours and vibrancy of the artist’s cultural roots and island life.
Shot in the Mojave Desert and the beaches of Trinidad & Tobago, “Colourful” interplays between these contrasting landscapes to send a message of positivity to his fans. His message is simple: find the beauty in life and within yourself. With festival and live shows planned this summer, Kalpee will be taking his colourful, infectious brand of music to the world. Listen, stream or download now from all worldwide platforms and keep your life “Colourful”." the release continued.
