About Freetown Collective

Freetown Collective is known for producing a sound that is riveting, relevant and authentic. As part of a wave of new calypso artists emerging from the Caribbean, the six-piece dynamic musical ensemble distinguishes itself through a unique blend of Caribbean rhythms and urban pop music.  

The band has steadily grown its global reach within the last few years. After a brief international tour in 2015 that saw them grace stages in Rotterdam, Edinburgh, London and Toronto, their track Good Swimma was remixed and renamed Believer by Major Lazer and Showtek and released in 2016. The following year, Believer received Gold Certification in France and exceeded 40 million views on YouTube. Another collaboration with Showtek saw the release of Amen.  

Freetown Collective released its debut album entitled Born in Darkness in 2018 amidst overwhelmingly critical acclaim. The band’s single with renowned DJ Private Ryan entitled Feel the Love occupied the #2 spot on Apple Music’s Top 100 songs (in Trinidad and Tobago) list for six weeks in February and March 2020. In 2022, the band released World on Fire with Soca superstars DJ Private Ryan and Patrice Roberts.
