James, a prolific song writer who lives in the United States, previously won the road march title in 2007 and 2009 with hits âParty Animalâ and âMadd Houseâ respectively.

This year, James launched a Carnival âDoh Kill the Vibeâ campaign aimed at promoting positivity and love throughout the season. He said while he was not competing in the Ragga and Soca monarch competitions, he was not excluding himself from being in contention for the road march.
Other songs released by James for the 2017 Carnival season include âDoh Kill the Vibeâ and âLeg Up Dey.â
