De New Queen of Zess by Devon Seale | Trinidad Calypso 2024

Politicians beware; your Calypsonians are paying attention and will report to the people in a stinging fashion. It appears that the opposition leader did not think about what she was saying and chose to use Zess-style to convey her message. For those who are unaware, Zess is a Trini slang term that means "to show off or to be flashy."

It turns out that Devon Seale took her to task for her 'gaslighting' the topic of crime in Trinidad and Tobago. The opposition leader advised that the people should "light them up," but instead Devon Seale is setting the leader ablaze because of her zealous actions while campaigning. 

So what do we like about this song? Our pet peeve was addressed with this song; the music composition is danceable! The lyrical content is on point, and the vocals complement the music with class. We love the song and recommend it. 

YouTube Music Release Notes:
This parody in song treats the opposition leader's clumsy and awkward embrace of the language of the " Trinibad/Dancehall artists (called Zesser music in local dialect) to fortify her "Stand Your Ground"  crime initiative during the recent local government elections campaign.
