He promises that this year’s Machel Monday event will be the greatest of all time, much like the music he’s unleashed on his brand new 20 track compilation, aptly entitled, GOAT. Machel Montano has evolved. His journey to this point, has undoubtedly led him along a path of self realization and contemplative analysis of the spiritual realm. This year, as Montano released his 44th album at the age of 45, he made it a point of connecting the dots in an effort to truly globalize the sound of Soca- the genre he said, has fed his kids.

Fellow soca artistes certainly came out to support.

Launching the album at The Residence lounge and bar at One Woodbrook Place on Thursday night, Montano, swamped by fans, the media and friends like Nadia Batson, Farmer Nappy, DLoxx, M1, St. Lucia’s Motto, SuperBlue, Skinny Fabulous of St. Vincent and Chutney soca artist, KI, among others, he explained that collaborations are what’s needed to take Soca music forward at this time. The HD band boss praised the producers and songwriters who’ve worked alongside him, among them, Motto, Skinny Fabulous, Travis World, Jamesy P and Jovan James, for their dedication to the art form and their involvement in all that he has brought forward in recent time.

The crowd, amped for the new music, cautiously reveled with delight as Machel took the stage explaining that this particular launch performance had not been rehearsed. “I just came from three days in the studio. I just flew in from Barbados so none of this is rehearsed,” he told fans. Despite that, he did not disappoint. G O A T , the 20 track album, which was recorded over the past year, will feature songs like, “Hot Gyal”, “Brace Up”, “Day One”, “ Workie”, “Jammin” “Young Boy” and “De Road” with US RnB singer, Ashanti.

The album is available on iTunes for just $9.99 and according to Machel, more caribbean people must support the art form and the artistes by purchasing the albums from legitimate online retailers like iTunes in order for Soca music as a genre to be given it’s very own category.

“Covid19 must not stop Christmas.”

Shurwayne winchester

This is how entertainer, ShurwayneWinchester feels about the uncertainty leading into the season of goodwill and giving- a season most anticipate annually, whether by religious persuasion or simply Trinbagonian tradition. 

“Love and light, peace and giving must push through and I’m ready to make that abundantly clear,” said Shurwayne on Tuesday night as he put the final touches on a song that’s just perfect for the season ahead. The track, a melodic, vibe-filled Soca parang anthem, wascollaboratively written by Preacher and Shurwayne was released on Wednesday to mark the beginning of the 100-day countdown to Christmas. It’s called, “Leave The Drinks By TheGate”- a call to action that’s guaranteed to catch on quickly. 

Trinidad and Tobago, like many countries around the world, has felt the devastating effects of the novel coronavirus, stopping many in their tracks- artistes and entertainment professionals around the Caribbean and the world, unable to travel and earn as they typically would. “Trinidad and Tobago is a special place when it comes to Christmas. This is traditionally a time for family gatherings and while we may not be able to mingle with each other as we usually would, we can still sing the music, smile and with a bit of physical distancing, we may still even be able to take a drink at a neighbour’sdoorstep,” said Shurwayne with a chuckle. 

Endorsing all public health directives, Shurwayne says this song is meant to bring a bit of much needed cheer to the people of T&T and the Caribbean by extension, while still promoting safety. “People from all walks of life are being affected by this virus. Many are experiencing depression and anxiety. This is just a personal effort to bring back those smiles and also to let my people know that where there is love, there is hope. Love lives in our Caribbean music and so, this is love from my lips to their ears,” he said. 

“Leave The Drinks By The Gate’, like all of Shurwayne’s music, is being globally distributed, and available for streaming via globally recognized streaming platforms. “I just really want to thank everyone who has supported me, for the love they’ve shown over the years. I want to let them all know that I believe in their resilience and we’ll get through this together,” said Shurwayne. 

The song’s lyric video has been done in Karoake style and was released simultaneously with the song. Shurwayne says he wants to encourage everyone to just sing along.
