Xodus Carnival Takes Center Stage in Shensea's Latest Music Video Featuring Coi Leray

Dancehall Princess, Shenseea, has once again captured the essence of Caribbean culture in her latest music video, featuring none other than the electrifying Coi Leray.

In a dazzling display of musical fusion and cultural celebration, Shenseea's decision to include bits of her Xodus Carnival experience has ignited screens worldwide with the vibrancy of Jamaica’s carnival celebrations.

Xodus Carnival, renowned for its dynamic energy and extravagant displays, took place on Sunday, April 7th, attracting over 5000 masqueraders from across the globe. Amidst the pulsating rhythms and infectious beats, Shenseea seized the spotlight, adorned in the stunning Regency costume, epitomizing the spirit of carnival with her undeniable charisma and unparalleled stage presence.

Through meticulous choreography and breathtaking visuals, Shenseea, alongside Coi Leray, brings the essence of Xodus Carnival to life in her ‘Flava’ music video. From the exuberant parade to the intricate costumes and vibrant street celebrations, viewers are transported to the heart of Kingston's cultural epicenter, where every beat resonates with the soul of the Caribbean.

Romeich Major, Shenseea’s Manager, shared that Xodus’ inclusion in the video is a result of the artiste wanting to showcase the vibe of the Caribbean.

"By collaborating with her favorite band, Xodus, she infuses the essence of Caribbean vibes into every frame, creating an electrifying fusion of music and culture. Her teaming up with Coi Leray adds an exciting dimension to the project, promising an unforgettable visual and sonic experience for her fans worldwide. This collaboration is a testament to Shenseea's commitment to celebrating her roots while pushing the boundaries of creativity in the music industry," stated Major.

Xodus Carnival's inclusion in Shenseea's music video underscores the global influence of Caribbean culture and its profound impact on the music industry. Being Jamaica’s premier carnival band, Xodus has become a cornerstone of Jamaica’s cultural landscape, and has taken brand Jamaica worldwide by attracting masqueraders from across the globe.

"As a cornerstone of Caribbean culture, Xodus Carnival is honored to be featured in Shenseea's latest music video," says Kamal Bankay, Executive Chairman of Xodus Carnival. "Our mission has always been to celebrate the diversity and vibrancy of our heritage, and this feature is a testament to the enduring legacy of Xodus Carnival," he concluded.

The Xodus Carnival Company aims to leave its mark on carnival celebrations across the Caribbean as well as international regions, and as such, the band has partnered with Renegade Mas in the Cayman Islands for CayMas 2024. This partnership has seen Xodus creating 6 costumes presented in the Renegade Mas ‘Fete to the Beat’ virtual band launch. Similarly, Xodus has since launched its sections in both Canada’s Caribana with Carnival Nationz  and Barbados’ Cropver with the Krave Carnival Band.

Xodus Carnival looks forward to bringing the Jamaican flair to the respective carnival celebrations, as well as the positive impact Shenseea’s music video will have on Carnival in Jamaica, for years to come.
