While Beyonce’s IvyPark may have already sold out online, the entertainer’s promotion of the activewear line that sees her collaborate with Adidas, continues to be heavily promoted across social media. So heavily promoted is the awesome line of sweatsuits and other fitness gear that Bey’s even pitched her look to Caribbean fans around the world.
There’s really nothing like the sound of reggae to get us Caribbean folk all flustered and ready to peep the scene. Well Bey and her team certainly know us well so like clockwork, Caribbean people are buzzing about the Ivy Park brand, and many of us would’ve likely been in the online shopping craze. The brand officially relaunched on Saturday and features a number of style options, including sweaters, snap track jackets, track pants, jumpsuits, harness bags, hoodies, tees, cargo sweat pants and even skirts.
Beyonce on the dancehall tip.
The line primarily consists of an orange, burgundy and off-white color palate with prices ranging from $25USD to $250USD. Pre-sale items from the new collection, and Beyonce’s first with Adidas after dropping Top Shop and becoming the sole owner, went on sale on Friday and by the end of the day, Ivy Park socks were the only item left. By Saturday, there were reports that even those were sold out.
St. Vincent’s Skinny Fabulous Says, “We Will Get Through This,” as La Soufrière Volcano Threatens Disaster.
The people of St. Vincent and the Grenadines have been placed on disaster alert by the island’s Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves as the La Soufrière volcano exhibited a change in eruptive activity. The island is now on red alert which means an eruption is imminent, according to the country’s National Emergency Management Organization.
Soca artist and song writer, Skinny Fabulous, in a social media post on Thursday night said, “Prayers be with us. Our volcano has gone into an elevated state of activities that suggest that an explosive eruption is imminent or at least highly probable. I trust that persons while being urgent, wont panic. Easier said than done I know but let’s all act in accordance with all the guidelines and protocols and do so safely. We have been planning for this for weeks. We will get through this.” Beneath his sentiments on Instagram, fellow Caribbean entertainers posted emotional expressions of hope for safety.
Evacuation orders are in place in about a dozen districts of St. Vincent, affecting roughly 6,000 to 7,000 people, a spokesperson for the University of the West Indies Seismic Research Centre, or UWI-SRC, told CNN.
The volcano has had five explosive eruptions — in 1718, 1812, 1814, 1902/03 and 1979 — according to the seismic research center.
Help on the way.
On Twitter, NEMO officials said cruise ships were heading to the islands to assist with evacuations. CNN reported that Carnival Cruise Lines is sending two ships — the Carnival Paradise and the Carnival Legend — to evacuate residents. The report stated that each ship will accommodate up to 1,500 residents who will be transported to neighboring islands, which have agreed to offer refuge out of harm’s way.

Some have argued that the AG’s appearance at the event, ‘Vibes with Voicey,’ was all in good faith, arguing that all COVID-19 protocols were observed, however photos and video footage showing the AG and others mingling in close proximity with each other, without masks on their faces, have led to some outcry of double standards when it comes to the law.
