FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

TORONTO, ON – November 9, 2012

Canada’s Dancehall pioneer Trinity Chris will have everyone on the dancefloor with his latest release Supermodel featuring Pop/R&B artist Najjah Calibur.  On the heels of national tours with Ghostface Killer (Wu-Tang/Def Jam) and Sheek Louch (D-Block/Def Jam) in 2012 as a featured artist on Peter Jackson’s “Hustler” and in follow-up to an earlier street record “Nah Left It”, Trinity Chris who first broke into the International Music scene with “The Anthem (An Ode to Canada)” in 2005 and was later nominated for a Juno in 2007 for “In the the Streets” is back fiercer than ever fusing his distinctive booming vocals with invigorating dance beats.  This collaboration between Trinity Chris and Najjah Calibur culminated into the production of Trinity’s second video of the year which will mark his return to radio and music networks across the country.  This latest release comes just one month ahead of Trinity’s last tour of the year with Jadakiss (D-Block/Def Jam).  Supermodel is sure to have everyone feeling like a super model.
