Archived: Machel Montano Unleashes, ‘Beat It’. Can It Take The Road March?

As the Road March title becomes the topic of interest among carnival lovers, Machel Montano’s new single is this morning going through the critic test. Can it stand up or will you be ‘Jammin Still’?

With just about two weeks before the parade of the bands through the streets of Port-of-Spain and San Fernando, the reigning Road March champ, Machel Montano has unleashed a song he says is the ‘Road March.’ The new track, ‘Beat It’ was released at 6 o’clock this morning. Among the writers?… Jason ‘Shaft’ Bishop.

Montano teamed up with Joli Rouge Sound, Kubiyashi, Kitwana Israel andJason ‘Shaft’Bishop, for this single’s construction.

The song boasts rhythmic timing and melodious intonations that certainly make it perfect for a masquerader’s enjoyment. Some however say, it’s just too familiar. Montano has a way of bringing songs and the lyrics that embody them, to life when he performs them, so we expect that within the next few days, ‘Beat It’, may begin growing on many, faster than they anticipated.

There is a bit of confusion in the minds of those who believe that the Ultimate Rejects’ ‘Full Extreme’ is in the Road March race. Early on in the season, it was made abundantly clear by the group that they would not be competing against other artistes for any of the Carnival titles. They did not enter the International Soca Monarch competition and while many are rooting for the song to win the Road March title, it must be registered with TUCO by February 24th. Efforts by EBUZZTT to get confirmation on the Ultimate Rejects’ final decision, where this is concerned, proved futile this morning.

Entertainment Professionals Make Genuine Effort, Starting with T&T’s Youth.

It’s as easy as ABC for three entrepreneurs who aim to make a positive impact at some of Trinidad and Tobago’s most negatively impacted secondary schools. Last Tuesday, the ABC project got underway at the Morvant Laventille Secondary School. It was there that forth form pupils of the school gained insight into the entertainment industry through the personal stories of each of the initiative’s stakeholders. The project is spearheaded by media personality Hans Des Vignes, who has enlisted Montage Productions and Way Up 868 clothing Managing Director Romano Francois and BUZZconcepts founder Brendon Brathwaithe. The men urged students to remain optimistic and focused on their goals in order to succeed in life. Soca artiste, Nailah Blackman joined the project’s stakeholders in encouraging the teenagers to find balance between school and their passions before treating them to a performance.

Over the past year, Des Vignes, Francois and Brathwaithe noted with concern the negative attention some schools garnered across local media platforms. With the goal of boosting positivity in the school environment, they joined forces to create the ABC project.
“I believe if we each do something to help our country be a better place, it will be,” Des Vignes said. “This is what we are trying to do. We believe if we do our small part to impact on the lives of some young people, we will eventually impact all. Imagine if each citizen were to do their small parts,” he added.

ABC stands for Attitude, Belief and Consistency. Young people, the founders stated, should equip themselves with these attributes to achieve school and personal goals.“The initiative is not sponsored by corporate Trinidad and Tobago and it is a way for us to give back to our beautiful island,” the founders stated. The project targets Form Four students and hopes to provide inspiration and career guidance through interaction with the project founders and entertainers.

“Each of our stakeholders will speak on their careers and what is required to be involved in the entertainment industry. The session will also feature a question and answer segment and will end with a short performance from a top soca artiste,” the founders explained. The Project will continue  on Tuesday (January 23) at the San Juan North Secondary School.

Machel and Superblue spotted in musical conference it would seem, prior to the release of the track.

Machel Montano’s power is never to be questioned. For years, this King of the art form has proven his worth as a Caribbean musician and a revolutionary. In 2018, he has once again given Carnival lovers something to hold on to, something that would make masqueraders move with ease when the curtains are drawn on Carnival Monday. Machel Montano has collaborated with Austin ‘SuperBlue’ Lyons on a 2018 Road March contender called, “Soca Kingdom”.

The race is now for the  resilient. Prior to this song’s release overnight, the Road March race seemed to be a two man race between Patrice Roberts and Iwer George. Iwer had spoken effectively ahead of his song’s release, warning everyone who wondered, that he would be coming after the Road March crown. For a few weeks, ‘Savannah’ had been building powerfully and as the fetes erupted, Iwer was proving that he has a special secret to get the people on his side.
