More Power Soca Hits the Airwaves. Road March Race Gets Interesting. BUT Are There Enough?

Published

on

Ricardo Drue is pushing hard again in 2018.

Ricardo Drue has unleashed a brand new Power Soca anthem that has the potential to cause some serious anarchy on the streets of Port-of-Spain and wherever else a street parade may be held in the heat of the Greatest Show on Earth. With not a single thought of slowing down, the young father and front line vocalist of the All Starz is once again proving that he’s an extreme force to be reckoned with in the Carnival.

                                  ARMY FETE.
                               FEBRUARY 2ND.
                        PAID ADVERTISEMENT.

Drue appeared on RED 96.7FM on Wednesday where he unleashed, “Intensity”- a track written by Nadia Batson and produced by producer extraordinaire, Neil Bernard. He said Bernard sent him back to the drawing board repeatedly, telling him that he had to rough up the track a bit more, each time. He eventually got it. Admitting that his love affair with soca had, for the most part, centred around the Groovy Soca vibe, Drue yesterday told radio personalities, Richard Trumpet, Rachel Price and Tim Tim that he is now a big fan of the Power Soca energy. Questioned on the fact that he is now in direct competition with his daughter’s mother, Patrice Roberts, for the Road March crown, Drue shrugged it off saying that whoever is successful, his daughter, Lily, would ‘eat’.

the Ultimate Rejects have some of the most powerful anthems of the season.

A few Power Soca contenders have emerged. We’re loving the Ultimate Rejects’ “Vex” and “Brimstone”, Destra and Nadia’s “Now,” Patrice Roberts’ “Sweet Fuh Days” and certainly this brand new single from Drue, “Intensity.”

The energy of Carnival, the revelry that the season calls for, can only be truly express and felt with the right music. Many have called for the return of  the hardcore feting vibe and while there has been a re-emergence of Power Soca, the question still remains, are there enough contributions to pool for a genuine monster Road March anthem? You tell us. Comment below this story for a chance to win tickets to Army Fete in the days ahead.

Nicki released new music today.

It takes very little to spark interest on the Net. A few days ago, Cardi B’s pregnancy reveal sent news agencies globally, off the deep end. After that, Nicki Minaj paraded her sexy-self across the floor at the Los Angeles  Lakers vs. Houston Rockets game on Tuesday, leaving tongues dangling as she reemerged on the social scene. She’s been off the radar for a bit, laying low in anticipation of the release of her upcoming album. Before that however, the Trinidad and Tobago born rapper, released two new tracks today.

On Tuesday, Minaj pretty much channeled a dominatrix at the NBA game in LA, donning a black patent leather and fishnet ensemble, uniquely pulled together by a pair of spike-covered knife pumps from Balenciaga’s Spring 2018 collection. Minaj definitely scored points at the game for making a public appearance that would certainly be on everyone’s lips in the lead up to her double track release today. The singles, “Chun Li” and “Barbie Tingz,” will make up Minaj’s fourth full-length album. Her previously released album was 2014’s ‘The PinkPrint.’

Take a look at Nicki’s hot-gal ensemble and let us know whether you think she created the desired effect.

The Caribbean superstars came out in full force as Jamaica’s Carnival excitement climaxed on Sunday with road revelry quite similar to what’s experienced in Trinidad and Tobago and other parts of the world where carnival is a staple. Jamaican dancehall sensation, Shenseea however, kept the internet lit with videos and photos all giving the world a glimpse of the carnival euphoria, this time, on her island.

Shenseea was on fire yesterday, in Jamaica.

The dancehall beauty, who’s managed to steal the hearts of global audiences in less than five years, maintains her social media engagement like no other. That, we believe, is what may be the defining tool in this young artist’s powerful marketing and promotion strategy. In Jamaica yesterday, Shenseea partied like a true Caribbean fetter. She wore an amazing fuchsia feathered costume delivered by Xodus Carnival and rubbed shoulders with the likes of T&T’s Bunji Garlin and fellow Jamaican artist, Aidonia on the road.

Other Caribbean celebs like Aidonia and T&T’s Bunji Garlin were a part of the road revelry in Jamaica on Sunday.

A number of Trinidad and Tobago carnival thrills made their way over to JA this year, among them, JAM Nation- an event that draws thousands annually in T&T. Caesar’s Army was there again with their AMBush event as well. The Caribbean is undoubtedly proving to be the essence of global fun and excitement. From carnival revelry to cruises like Soca on the Seas that provide carnival entertainment and Caribbean cultural thrills on  board, there’s no denying that the Caribbean’s where it’s at!
