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.
