Hold on tight, it’s about to get wild. New soca music, complete with a fresh face and unbridled vibe, emerges this September. No mater how you look at it, the evolution of the soca game continues to flourish and by all accounts, the young trendsetters have upped the anti, delivering smash hit singles consistently. Adding to the fire is Lucrativ. He’s following up his recent Anguillan exposure with a new single called ‘Cyah Tell We Nott’n.’ His desire is to push the soca global, in tandem with the countless others who’ve made it their life ambition. Like them, soca is life for this young Trinbagonian. 

During the months of July and August, Lucrativ made his presence felt on the island of Anguilla. He’d made a unique alliance with an Anguillan DJ by the name of DJ Legend264. Together, they created a single called “Frenzy”- an intense, power Soca track that promised to breathe life into the Anguillan festival circuit. By the time the Anguilla Summer Festival came around, Lucrativ had been booked to perform at the premiere event, the August Monday Caribbean Beach Party. He was in good company too, as Caribbean showstoppers Bunji Garlin and Fay Ann Lyons, as well as Nadia Batson and Terri Lyons had also been booked to perform at the event. “It was a good look for soca music and Trinidad and Tobago as well. I was humbled to be on a cast that included such powerful acts. It was definitely a defining moment in my growing career,” said Lucrativ.

Nineteen-year-old Jamaican reggae artist, Koffee has been nominated by the Grammy nomination committee for her first Grammy Award in the Best Reggae Album category. It’s the first nomination for the Spanish Town native who is the youngest solo reggae act to have gotten a nomination in the category.

Koffee is going head to head with Julian Marley with “As I Am,” Sly & Robbie & Roots Radics with “The Final Battle” and Third World with “More Work To Be Done” which was produced by Damian Marley.

This is Koffee’s first nomination for a Grammy Award. The EP was also her debut.

The young entertainer released her debut EP, ‘Rapture’ in March this year. She appeared at major concerts which featured Buju Banton and other prominent acts, in the aftermath of the EP’s release, promoting her music and offering fans, especially in the Caribbean, a better opportunity to feel her vibe. In Trinidad in April, when Buju headlined the I Am Legend concert, Koffee was added to the cast much to the anticipation of her younger fan base. Her momentum never slowed and she never disappointed. Fast forward to November and the young, positive influencer is showing signs of musical greatness for many years to come.

Other Jamaican entertainers who have enjoyed Grammy Award success are Buju Banton, Beenie Man, Shaggy, Damian Marley, Jimmy Cliff and Burning Spear, among others.

The 62nd Annual Grammy Awards ceremony is scheduled for January 26, 2020, at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Despite the high lifestyles of entertainers and celebrities, we often forget that they’re people just like the rest of us. On Wednesday in South, Trinidad, soca artiste and Point Fortin native, Fay Ann Lyons, was honored by the borough for her contribution to culture and while the recognition stood tall, the humility of the artiste’s posts to social media, showed a different side to her- a side many would more than likely, bypass.

Alvarez has always stood unique on the soca circuit. Her blatant, fearless speech is sometimes misunderstood for aggression. In the heart of it all, Lyons-Alvarez, by all accounts, is a country girl to her heart. On Tuesday, even as she was being congratulated for being honored with the keys to her borough of Point Fortin, Lyons chose to return to her roots, posting a photo of herself with Secondary school teacher. She said she could not have left the borough without stopping in to say hello. “Could not pass through and not say hi. This wonderful woman taught me in school #MrsBridgemanand I will always remember her poise and strength…. and toughness! That woman was dread, but we all loved her,” she wrote.

Lyons-Alvarez recently returned from the Uber Soca Cruise where she took her vibe, like several other top notch soca artistes, to the people. She has already unleashed a couple tracks heading into Carnival 2020, among them, “One Love” with Jaiga and Grenada’s Lil Natty and Thunda and “Wha Deh Know” on the Nikholai Greene produced Cubano Riddim, which also features Jamaica’s Konshens.
