It’s a new year, and we have new tings in store! Recently we’ve teamed up with Radial, a growing Music Streaming service based in Trinidad & Tobago. While we show love to Dancehall, Reggae, Hip Hop, and Reggae Fusions, we have a lil love for the Soca Music. To show our love a little more, we’re kicking off a weekly Playlist series on Radial to highlight our top 5 songs we’re feeling for the week (maybe a bonus track here or there)! We urge you to head on over to GetRadial.com, or download “Radial” in the iTunes App Store to check out our Playlists! Time to “Wuk Up” and “Get On Bad“!

Today on Oldies Sunday, we look back at the Calypso Legend, Calypso Rose’s “Come Leh We Jam“. Arranged/Produced by Pelham Goddard and Charlie’s Roots, this single was released in 1977 by CLO Records. The single was a part of her “Her Majesty: Calypso Rose” album which was released the same year, and was entered in the 1978 Trinidad Road March Competition. With her signature delivery, she speaks on the Soca music putting her in a wonderful place and prompting her to dance through it all. She also encourages unity in the dance with lyrics like “So leh we jam, jam, jam…“, “Jam together, Jam one another…“.
Yesterday, Bajan Recording Artist/Producer Jus D celebrated his birthday. In addition to the festivities, he released his latest single titled “Camilla“. With him handling Production, this is a uptempo single dedicated to all the Camillas in the world. For the women that love all genres of music, for those who know how to move those hips to the beat, for those who know how to steal the show with just appearing, this is for you! Jus D has been on a run lately with his previous singles and has been making lots of noise as well. If you haven’t been familiar with his Future Soca sounds, today is the day!
