OLDIES SUNDAY: Singing Sandra – Die With My Dignity (1987)


Today’s Oldies Sunday selection comes from the late Sandra DesVignes-Millington a.k.a. Singing Sandra. Today we go back to the 1980s with her track, “Die With My Dignity” a.k.a. “Sexy Employees“.

Written by Ortniel Bacchus with production and distribution by M&M Records in 1987, the track finds Singing Sandra sharing the challenges women face on the Island when it comes to finding employment. She shares the episodes where Employers try to take advantage of women in the workplace by sexually harassing and exploiting them for monetary gains. Singing Sandra puts her foot down as she’s not welcoming their advances, and would rather go elsewhere than to discard her morals and values for gains of any kind. Sadly this is what’s going on in workplaces around the world where gender inequality is concerned, and with the #MeToo Movement on the rise in the past few years, many men are facing the other side of the Law for their crimes.

Singing Sandra’s “Die With My Dignity” became a part of history as it helped her to win the titles of “National Calypso Queen” in Trinidad, and the “St. Maarten Queen Of The World“. The song would be later featured on the “Rising Stars ’87” album, and became one of Singing Sandra’s signature tunes. Since “Die With My Dignity”, she went on to become the second woman to ever win the Calypso Monarch title in 1999 after Calypso Rose. With another title win in 2003, she became the first woman to do it twice. One of the pioneers in Calypso industry, she paved the way for more female voices to emerge in a predominantly male scene. She continued to make music and seal her place as a Caribbean Icon until her passing on January 28, 2021. We remember her with this Oldies Sunday selection.

THANK YOU SINGING SANDRA!

Life is filled with many challenges, but it takes great determination and faith to move forward from them. 2020 has been a challenge for many mentally, but we take it a day at a time. Recording Artist Sekani BRGHTN reflects on his journey, and offers some positive words on his new single, “Do Well (Life)“.

Produced by and featuring Khaje, Sekani BRGHTN looks back at some of the past moments in his life like his migration to the US from Jamaica, dealing with the new life as an immigrant, trying to protect his mental health during challenging times, family issues and more. Despite all his experiences, he understands that there are others who are going through similar situations, and offers some encouragement.

When we asked about the creative process behind the track, he shared, “The idea for the song struck me as I was riding the Train thinking I never really delved into my life as an artist/person, so I did just that thinking of my journey from leaving Jamaica to where I am now knowing there has been similar people in my circumstances and wanted them to know they are not alone in the struggle.” Having made some developments in his creativity within the past couple years, Sekani looks to tackle the new decade with great music, and make his brand grow exponentially worldwide.

Will The Wolf & Xodrew Team Up On “I’m Thinking You Should”


Trinibagonian Creative Will The Wolf continues his impressive run of releases in 2021. The rising artist continues to show his range with various topics covered, and amazes viewers with the accompanying visuals he and team put together. Today, we get to check his latest video for the single, “I’m Thinking You Should“.

Will The Wolf teams up with Recording Artist Xodrew here as they deliver a track that is hitting hard thanks in part to the production by Tano. Will drops lyrics that many can relate to, and with Xodrew’s contribution, the vibe is still the same here. Will has a commendable streak of tracks out, and only time will tell how his official project will sound. The video which in collaboration with Josiah Persad Films and Jonanthon Mora, finds Will rocking a skull face tattoo while looking dapper in between him going hard (and getting hit hard) in the Boxing ring, while Xodrew looks like he was transported to the 1940s as he finds himself chilling with some beautiful women throughout the video. One thing for sure, Will The Wolf sure knows how to pick a great team to put everything together.
