OLDIES SUNDAY: Baron – Auld Lang Syne (1997)


It’s Boxing Day part 1! We hope you all had a great Christmas Day filled with unity, laughs, good food, and gifts. We’re giving an Oldies Sunday selection for the final time in 2021. We thank you for giving it some support, and we look forward to even more in 2022. In true New Year fashion, we bring to you Trini legend Baron and his track, “Auld Lang Syne“.

Produced by Julian Williams and released through JW Productions in 1997, Baron gives us some Soca vibes with his version of the classic “Auld Lang Syne“. A song that helps to ring in the new year, Baron brings in some backup singers for a performance that goes very well with your favourite drink, and good people (via Zoom because we’re still social distancing). The track was featured on Baron’s “Christmas With The Baron” album which was also released in 1997. We hope you enjoyed 2021 despite all the madness that happened throughout. May 2022 be even better, and we stay safe and successful. Thanks for being a part of the Blog!

Maestro Don x D'Yani x Nailah Blackman - Senorita (Remix) on 13thStreetPromotions.com

.@MaestroDonMusic & @TrulyDyani Enlist @NailahBlackMan For The “Senorita (Remix)”


After keeping the streets and Social Media buzzing with the original “Senorita“, Dancehall Artists Maestro Don and D’Yani have been on a high. With millions of views gained for the official Music Video, fans around the world were keeping the single alive for months, and requesting more. Maestro Don has fulfilled that request as he makes a Jamaica/Trinidad link up with the inclusion of Soca Singer Nailah Blackman for the official “Senorita (Remix)“.

Originally produced by KevStar Records, Maestro Don and D’Yani crafted a great single for all the Senoritas with the banging bodies. Adding Nailah Blackman to the mix just makes for a bigger hit single as she gives us a splash of sexiness, and her signature vocals. With a Music Video shot by Hi Esteem Agency, we see Maestro and Nailah trade lines in a Hotel before shifting to her hanging out with her girls at the beach, while D’Yani brings it back to nature with his lovely lady close by. The original single has been doing some damage, and we expect the remix to turn up the vibes even more!

Pick Up & Run With These Current Dancehall X Soca Hits!


The 2019 Carnival season is officially on its way, and Dancehall artists are teaming up with Soca’s finest stars for various collaborations. It’s definitely a good look for the genres as it gives them more leverage to different markets, even after the seasons is done. Carnival is an International brand with different cities and countries around the world hosting their own. With more interest in the Caribbean culture over the years, it’s a pivotal moment for Dancehall and Soca to make a greater push for the International market with these collaborations. For those unfamiliar, the Jamaican love affair with Soca and Carnival dates back to the 1940s at the University of the West Indies (Mona Campus), and the collaborations over time are just great moments in this ever growing union. With their feel good vibes and ability to bring people together, the collaborations will continue. Today we’re featuring a few of the Dancehall x Soca crossovers that are currently making waves on the scene.

OLDIES SUNDAY: Byron Lee & The Dragonaires x Preacher x Admiral Bailey – Dance Hall Soca (1993)


Happy Sunday! Today we celebrate a lil Dancehall, and a lil Soca with our “Oldies Sunday” selection. Going back to the year 1993, we tune in to the late Byron Lee and his Band The Dragonaires’ hit, “Dance Hall Soca“! Featuring Soca Artist Preacher and Dancehall Artist/Football Coach Admiral Bailey, we get the best of both worlds as Dancehall and Soca fans alike joined forces and partied away without care! The track was featured on the Band’s 1993 album of the same name, and it’s a fun song that became one of Byron Lee’s signature hits, and you could say one of the songs that paved the way for many Dancehall/Soca collaborations over the years. With the superb instrumentations from the Band, and Preacher and Bailey’s contributions, you could wave your rag, wine, and do the “Soca Bogle” to your heart’s content.
