The players are lining up. There’s no fear, no holding back. Already, Lyrikal has touched down in Trinidad and Tobago ahead of T&T Carnival 2020 and he’s come prepared to give carnival lovers exactly what they want. Several tracks in the bag already, the Brooklyn based soca star is preparing for one of his best seasons yet, and he’s only just beginning. 

Lyrikal is undeniably one of the most consistent soca artistes.

With one of the biggest songs heading into Carnival 2020, Lyrikal is marked for success next year. ‘Rukshun’, a track written by the artist himself, rides high on the Darkseid Riddim, produced by Wetty Beatz The track’s been on consistent rotation since October, alongside that of St. Vincent’s Problem Child. His answer to ‘Rukshun’, a track called, “Nasty Up’, has also created massive hysteria on the global fete circuit. No matter the competition faced though, Devon ‘Lyrikal’ Martin is not one to be focused on what anyone else is doing. “I just want to give the people music they can fete to. That’s always my focus. When I see that materialize, I win and my win is an internal one,” he said. 

Altogether seven new songs already released, the artiste, who’s impressive catalogue of hits include, ‘Loner’, ‘Conquer Meh’ and ’25-8’, has made no promises when it comes to possibly releasing more music. “We’re looking at things for now. So far, even with the season in its embryonic stage, there’s already a lot of music on rotation. It’s senseless to saturate the market in one season so unless it’s absolutely necessary, my team’s happy with what’s bubbling so far,” he said. 

The past year has been a whirlwind experience for him. Like several of his cohorts in the business, Lyrikal’s been constantly traveling. His style of music, loved and appreciated by thousands, if not millions worldwide, affords him the opportunity to discover new destinations quite often. “I give thanks to all the promoters and fans of Soca who request my presence at their events. It’s always an honor to perform for the people,” he said. Most recently, he performed in Martinique, and before that, Lyrikal was a main player on the Uber Soca Cruise- having become somewhat of a staple to that blockbuster post Miami Carnival event. 

Ready and amped up to go, Lyrikal’sstage show in Carnival 2020 will include hits like ‘Rukshun’, ‘Do Like That’, his groovy single, ‘Promise’ – a double up with Nadia Batson, and his other big Carnival crowd pleasers.

Patrice Roberts Deflects ‘Hard Questions’ Like A Boss And We’re Here for It!

In case you missed it, soca star, Patrice Roberts was a guest this afternoon on urban radio station, Boomchampions 94.1FM. She had a nice one on one interview and vibes session with hosts, Kevin Baker, SupaHype, Showtime Selvon and DJ Keron who doubles up as Patrice’s official touring DJ. Thing is, the Patrice we heard this afternoon was so in charge of her interview that not even the tricky questions could scare her.

The soca hottie who’s been maturing into her own in the past couple years, has delivered a number of big soca anthems this season. Songs like ‘Real Woman’, ‘Carry On’, ‘Happy Carnival’, ‘ Is We’, ‘Wha Yuh Know’ with Calypso royalty, Lord Nelson and others, have given the mother of one a beautiful catalogue to entertain fans with this carnival. Roberts’ personal life however, has been a matter of much public inquisition. On air, as she comfortably interacted with the guys, the singer fired back pretty matter-of-factly when asked whether she is single. “Not really,” she remarked coyly. Pressed to comment, she deflected like a boss as her daughter’s father, Ricardo Drue’s name came up. She would only say “a family that prays together stays together.”

Roberts and Drue were photographed together with Nailah Blackman aboard the Uber Soca Cruise in 2019.

Patrice and Ricardo have been spotted at a number of carnival events together. The status of their relationship however remains a matter of public speculation as neither of them have said they’re officially in a relationship. The duo have however proven to be very present, as a pair, in the life of their blossoming beauty, Lily.

Patsy certainly has grown into a powerhouse artist and we anticipate that her season will be as exciting of a public display as the speculation over her romantic life has proven to be. The soca star hosts her second Carnival concert, ‘ Strength of A Woman’ at the Normandie hotel on

Skinny Fabulous Unifying the Caribbean. Artist Could Steal Another Road March.

Gamal Doyle is heating up Soca stages once again in Trinidad and Tobago. Y’all know Gamal right? Yes! Skinny Fabulous! He’s back with pure fire ahead of Carnival 2020 in Trinidad and Tobago, delivering not just a couple hits, but several, among them, another big collaboration, this time with Machel Montano and Neil ‘Iwer’ George.

Skinny has been globe trotting over the past year. His Road March success with “Famalay,” which saw him collaborate with Machel and Bunji Garlin, afforded trips around the world in 2019. “There are no words to express how I feel following the success of the last year. All I can say is that there is strength in unity,” he said. Skinny’s a firm believer in the concept of one Caribbean people. As he moves to invade another Carnival in Trinidad and Tobago, Skinny says he’s eager to give fetters exactly what they want.

“As an artist, what many see as seasonal, I view as a year-round opportunity. I am always eager to get into the thick of the action in Trinidad and Tobago, because this is where it all starts, every year,” said Skinny in a chat with Ebuzztt. This season, his releases include “Up and Up,’ ‘Naked’, ‘Soca Trend’, ‘Bacchanal Army’ and ‘Hold On’ with Team Foxx. Of course, his latest release with Machel and Iwer George is likely to be the ultimate crowd pleaser in 2020. “When we hit the stage, it will be nothing short of mass hysteria,” assured Skinny, and that it has.

A firm believer in unifying the Caribbean through culture and music, Doyle says there is unshakeable strength and power in unifying the sound, the artistes and the talent. He also feels Soca music has the potential to unify people globally, no matter social or cultural background. “We have a unique sound in this thing called Soca music. The vibration of our sound exudes pure bliss and that’s something anyone, no matter their cultural background, will feel and acknowledge. We’re going to make the whole world happy with this music, just watch!”

On February 13th , Skinny hosts ‘Fam Jam’ at Estate 101 in Trinidad. “I love the people of Trinidad and Tobago and I can’t wait to entertain them again this year,” he said. It’s his second event in T&T, with plans to keep the momentum going for many years to come.
