Joel Prince (born November 3, 1986), also known as J Prince is a Gospel Soca artiste and highly respected EDM producer from Trinidad and Tobago. He is the Founder and CEO of J Lab Productions, and a brand ambassador for Range Water.[1]

Well known in his home country and across the Caribbean for his infectious music and flamboyant stage antics,[2] J Prince's music is filled with positive messages tailored for the young, and young at heart.[3]

Life and career

Born and raised in Morne Diablo, a fishing village on the southern coast of Trinidad, Joel Prince started off his career as a disc jokey for a popular sound system company. It wasn't long after rededicating his life to Christ that a local radio station recruited him where he went by the name 'Omega Express'. In 2008, Joel stepped up to the mic as an artiste where he changed his name to 'J Prince'[4] and released his first hit single, 'Victory' produced by G Master. The music video for 'Victory' climbed the charts of the Tempo's Cross-Caribbean secular countdown, landing the number 2 spot.[5] In 2011 J Prince and Flow Master Records worked to release his first two albums, 'Omega - A New Beginning', and 'Renaissance', catching the attention of Christafari's Mark Mohr. Since then, J Prince has shared the stage with Jah Cure, DJ Nicholas, Sherwin Gardner, Positive, and Grammy Nominated American Rapper Flame.[6]

Grammy, Dove nominated, and Juno Award winning producer Roger Ryan [7] signed J Prince to After Touch Music in 2016.[8]
