    There is no such thing as a `Canadian accent.`There are MANY accents in Canada.

    And Trina DOES NOT HAVE ANY OF THEM!!!. That is NOT Canadian. It`s just weird.

  • Some of her words sound like how I think a Canadian would talk but I really have only met a few Canadians and base the rest off of what I know from media which isn’t always the truth! I think it is more of where she is from, she could have picked things up from her surroundings while the rest of the sisters picked things up from the family. I kinda like it. 🙂

    • Just watched the video, guess I was way off lol!

    I love Trina’s accent! I noticed it right away and thought “wow that is kind of unique!” Very cute.

  • Trina has an old style Tidewater accent….it is spoken by those (in variations) living off the shores of the Chesapeake bay in Maryland & Virginia….the accent is almost extinct because of the military & government influence in the area, bringing in new families in for jobs or shifting them….but if you have older relatives still living and they are from secluded communities in this region, you will either hear it or pick it up yourself. It is a derivative of the Colonial English that was spoken by the original settlers of the area which managed to stick in the rural areas. The Braxtons are from Severn, MD.

    Dear Madame Noire, as a Canadian I would like to advise you that Trina Braxton’s accent is not a Canadian accent. It sounds off to us too. I don’t know how she acquired it but it’s definitely not from us. 

    •  LOL- wow, even the Canadians aren’t claiming it.  Oh well, Trina, don’t know what to tell ya on this one.
