Prince Levy's 'Take It Slow' a hit

Prince Levy

When he began recording music three years ago, reggae artiste Prince Levy was not quite prepared for the challenges and trappings that fame would bring. Now that he has scored a bona fide radio hit with his single, 'Take It Slow', co-produced by Jay Edge/Prince Levy Music, he is now on the inside track to success and learning new things every day.

Prince Levy did a few interviews on local TV programmes, and that publicity gave him his first little nudge, and his work did the rest, capturing listeners from all over the world.

"I am extremely humbled. this is just an example that substance is better than ego any day. The feedback has been great. it takes a bit of getting used to, knowing that people can recognise you in the streets wherever you go. every day you meet new challenges," the 27-year-old University of the West Indies graduate said.

He was regarded as one of the best new reggae vocalists to have emerged in 2014 based on the buzz around Take It Slow, which hit the HYPE Tv top 20 chart recently. He has secured an entertainment manager, and his team recently finished shooting a stylish video for his follow-up single, Ganja Hailings aka London Bridge, which will premier soon on TV.

Prince Levy made his recording debut in 2011 with the song Completely, which was co-produced by Mfon and Jay Edge.

He hails from the Roaring River district in Westmoreland. he attended the Westmoreland Community Music School before moving to Kingston, where he attended St George's College.

He later earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Language, Communication, and Society from the University of the West Indies. "Music chose me. this is what I feel compelled to do and am passionate about," he said.
