It’s no mystery that each year, New Yorkers and carnival lovers in Miami get the last taste of the 2018 Soca, dished out and served to them just as the weather’s about to change and winter wear makes its comeback for the year.

Many would’ve already heard much of the music. Songs like Shal Marshall’s ‘Splinters.’ Voice’s ‘Year For Love’ and even the Road March anthem, Machel Montano’s ‘Soca Kingdom’ are pretty much made the rounds by now. Well, with that realised, two major players have done something to change the vibe, just in time. All hail Bunji Garlin and US Hip Hop boss, the legendary, Busta Rhymes. Together they’ve delivered something that may pretty much invoke some real fire in the US this weekend.

At midnight last night, as promised, Garlin and Busta gave us something fresh- something with a bounce that’s likely to create a stir in C2K19, in T&T. It could also mean Busta Rhymes’ grand Carnival debut. That would be huge!

Boasting a collaboration like no other, Busta previewed the release on social media yesterday, using some very colourful language to express his heartfelt appreciation for this particular link. He managed to spend some good recording time with Garlin and his wife FayAnn in NY this past week, working on ‘Drop It’ – the new single that’s been produced by Trinidad and Tobago’s 1st Klase.

Check it out below. Let us know what you think in the comments section. Brooklyn’s definitely gonna be lit this weekend with this brand new release- something New Yorkers can lay claim to, after all, this one’s being debuted in the heat of the Labor Day action!

He may be a well loved actor by Caribbean people around the world but today, Trinidad and Tobago’s people are kicking up against the launch of a rum by ‘Creed’ and ‘Black Panther’ actor, Michael B Jordan. He has coined the new liquor, ‘J’ouvert Rum!’

No… Trinbagonians are not happy at all.

Overnight, as the actor and his team launched the rum, voices began to erupt in utter shock and disgust for what some referred to as the blatant ‘theft’ of a Trinbagonian term that, while not trademarked, is well known worldwide as a creative piece of terminology for the Carnival festival’s pre-dawn, dirty Mas tradition.

Distinguishably packaged to include a small bottle of Trinidad and Tobago’s Angostura bitters, the launch night token for guests, which was set in a wooden box, held in its engraving, the true essence of the new Rum’s origin. “Derived from the Antillean Creole French term meaning Daybreak, J’ouvert originated in the pre-dawn streets of Trinidad as celebrations of Emancipation combined with Carnival season to serve as the festival’s informal commencement. Crafted on those same islands, J’ouvert Rum is a tribute to the party start,” it reads.

Frantically, some took to social media calling on Trinidad and Tobago’s government to intervene. Radio personality, Abeo Jackson emotionally wrote, “Trinis we eh fed up of ppl seeing the value of we ting more than we? So much so that many attempts at theft/columbusing/appropriation/neocolonial capitalism happens continuously under our noses. How we protecting and gate keeping? Sometimes we need to effect same for our “own” who would sell “us” upriver for a buck.”

The popular US actor was surrounded by friends and international influencers on Saturday night as he launched the J’ouvert rum, all of whom celebrated his entrepreneurial move.

Beauty and lifestyle “guru,” Khat Brim wrote, “There was no better way to celebrate #Juneteenth than with friends and fam witnessing the launch of a new black owned business✊🏿💯 I’m so proud of my brah brah @michaelbjordan as he continues to raise the bar high! I know for sure he’s making our ancestors proud with every great achievement🙌🏾 Therefore, I salute him & his entire team on the release of @jouvertrum 🥃🚀 #letsgo #blackboyjoy.”

While the Caribbean continues to feel the effects of COVID-19, many islands maintaining public restrictions, a popular Jamaican producer has expressed his personal experience having contracted the virus in October 2020.

A major force in the dancehall industry, Tarik Johnston, who’s best known as Rvssian, told fans on Twitter that he hasn’t gotten back his sense of smell since contracting COVID-19 back in October.

He is quite possibly one of the first Caribbean music influencers to openly state that the virus has affected his health. “Covid caused me to taste a rust taste when I have a Coca-Cola and a lot of food and drinks,” he tweeted. Prior to that, he said, “I had Covid in October 2020. I still havent got my smell back. 0%.”

Rvussian is popularly known for his production of Jamaican dancehall artist,  Vybz Kartel‘s single “Life Sweet” back in 2010. In September 2020, his name was credited for the production of one of the year’s most enjoyed reggae singles, “Lighter” by Tarrus Riley featuring Shenseea.

Responding to his tweets, fans offered advice, many suggesting home remedies which include the use of Apple Cider Vinegar. Many were happy that he used his platform to openly share his experience, triggering an open conversation on a topic that has been met with tremendous global skepticism and conspiracy theories.
