OLDIES SUNDAY: @MachelMontano – Too Young To Soca (1986)


As we come to a close of the month of May being “Child’s Month“, we’d like to highlight one more star whose career started in their youth. Today’s Oldies Sunday selection comes from Soca Legend Machel Montano with the track, “Too Young To Soca“!

Produced by Eddy Grant and released in 1986 through the Ice Label, this song featured Machel Montano at the age of 9. With high energy production, Machel commanded the track with the prowess of a veteran. He expressed his love for Soca Music, and dared to defied people’s opinions of his being too young to Soca. He wants to sing, he wants to jam, so let him be! “Too Young To Soca” quickly catapulted Machel Montano to stardom, and opened up a lane for him to enjoy a career that has spanned well over 30 years. “Too Young To Soca” was featured on his 1985 4 track album of the same name.

As the month comes to an end, we’d like to ask all the parents or soon to be parents one thing, please protect the children! There are so many kids with promise and potential, and society finds a way to shatter their hopes and aspirations. Protect the yutes!

thank you machel montano for this classic!
