Team work makes the dream work. Nobody in the Soca industry has had more collaborations with other artistes, like Machel Montano has. From Walker Hornung to Wyclef Jean, Shaggy, Charly Black, Buju Banton, Beenie Man, French Montana and now RnB songbird, Ashanti, Machel knows the worth of team work.

Ashanti has teamed up with Machel Montano

The Monk’s in full carnival mode these days and he’s got the music to prove it. A recent count on the number of releases he’s managed thus far, exeeeded 10! Makes us all wonder where other artistes would fit in really, but this certainly isn’t unusual. Machel Montano has always worked hard to prove his worth as an industry leader. Behind the scenes, business moves such as this one with Ashanti, certainly prove his strategy-making prowess. He should never be discounted when it comes to that! With another Machel Monday around the corner, collaborations like this one with the “Rain On Me” singer, prove effective in marketing his event. Now, there’s hardly a doubt that Ashanti’ll be on stage with Machel at the highly anticipated carnival concert event.

Last year, a single track done with French Montana essentially sealed the inclusion of the HipHop act on the MM cast. So far, Machel’s other major collaboration this season has been done with fellow soca heavyweights, Bunji Garlin and Skinny Fabulous. That track, “Famalay” is quickly become the Road March anthem of choice by fetters.

The new single done with Ashanti is called “De Road” and was produced by Precision Productions.

She’s seen a weed vending machine so far and she seems to have been pretty blown away by that. Nailah Blackman’s in Switzerland. The soca beauty is there for the Swiss Soca Festival, something that’s pretty huge for this fresh, young entertainer.

Blackman, who unleashed a new EP last month called ‘The Reel’, has been delivering consistently over the past two years. Vocal strength and a visually appealing package, makes her an artiste to watch in the Caribbean music industry- an artiste who, by all accounts, has the best potential to make it onto the international music circuit.

Nailah in Switzerland.

In a near emotional rant on her Instagram story, Blackman said she is extremely happy. “All my life I always wanted to travel and do music and I am here for the Soca Swiss Festival. This is just amazing to me!” she said, thanking God for the opportunity. “God is good,” she said.

Nailah told her fans that she had always wanted to visit Europe. She said a lot of the artistes she’d listened to growing up, were European. “The whole vibe, the whole gloomy vibe, it’s a definite vibe. It’s definitely an emotion that I felt a lot in my childhood and I get why people would’ve made songs like they made in this kind of weather- it’s sort of gloomy so it’s nice to have soca here… bring a different side, yuh know!”

Check out Nailah’s reaction to the Weed Vending machine find, in Switzerland.

Kes the band has been busy. An entire album is being released to fans of Soca and Calypso music this month. In an interview on RED96.7FM on Thursday, Kees Dieffenthaller- lead singer of the band, said the album, “We Home” would be dropping on August 28th. He also urged the people of Trinidad and Tobago to love up Calypso music.

The upcoming album is the band’s first live studio album and according to a social media post on the band’s page, it was born out of the present global situation. The COVID-19 pandemic, still a very present threat, Kees said the period has given many people the time to reconnect with loved ones, take things slow, recharge, innovate and be at home.

The album is described as one that delivers to fans, the energy that’s often shared by the band when they’re on stage. “We miss the energy we get from you when we’re on stage and wanted to share the vibes we feel when we’re performing. We hope this album captures that feeling and gives us all something to look forward to when we could jam once more. We can’t wait for you to hear it,” said the social media post. ⁠ ⁠ ⁠

Speaking toward the end of the radio interview on Thursday, Kees embraced the applause offered for the collaborative single done with Jimmy October- a single called, “Magic”. He took that opportunity to call on the people of Trinidad and Tobago to celebrate calypso music which, he reminded the world, many other genres were bred from.
