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!

Masters At Work Ft. Puppah Nas-T & Denise Belfon - Work on 13thStreetPromotions.com #TrinidadandTobago #DeniseBelfon #Shenseea #MegantheeStallion #Lick #Caribbean #PutYourBackInItChallenge #Soca #HouseMusic #13thStreetPromotions #SaucyWow #DJFlex #PutYourBackInIt #NewYork

OLDIES SUNDAY: Denise Belfon Ft. MAW & Puppah Nas-T – Work (2001)


You know we had to do this. Today’s Oldies Sunday selection will be a little spicy as we take trips to Trinidad and Tobago and New York to check out MAW a.k.a. Masters At Work, Puppah Nas-T, and Denise “Saucy Wow” Belfon’sWork“.

Produced by MAW (a.k.a. Kenny Dope and Little Louie Vega) and Puppah Nas-T and released through MAW Records and Tommy Boy Records, “Work” features Soca Artist Denise Belfon, who is the lead vocalist on the track. Listeners would be invited a showcase of double entendres as Denise is need of someone who would take their “broom” to “sweep her yard” with emphasis on “put yuh back in it“, and “going downtown“. The song features a mix of House Music and Calypso sounds, which provides an enjoyable listen (a guilty pleasure for those who have a thing for double entendres and suggestive lyrics).

“Work” was a successful single for MAW, Puppah Nas-T, and Densie Belfon as the track charted high on the Billboard Dance Club Songs Chart peaking at #7. “Work” was popular in various countries including the US, South Africa, Brazil, and various Caribbean countries including Trinidad and Tobago. “Work” would enjoy a long shelf life thanks to various remixes of the track done by Global Deejays and Danny Marquez, Theo Schwarz, Riffs and Rays, and others. A remix of “Work” done by DJ Flex and Equiknoxx in 2019 became a viral sensation on Social Media thanks to various wining videos made for it on TikTok, Twitter, and Instagram. On January 21, 2022, “Work” would be given more life again thanks to Dancehall Artist Shenseea, US Rapper Megan Thee Stallion, and US Producer Murda Beatz sampling it for the controversial single, “Lick. Where will “Work” find itself next?

THANK YOU MAW, PUPPAH NAS-T, AND DENISE BELFON FOR THIS CLASSIC!

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!

Trinidad and Tobago Uncrowned Queens Carnival Soca Blog 13thStreetPromo 13thStreetPromotions Caribbean Covid 19 Pandemic

“Uncrowned Queens” To Provide Entertainment During The Pandemic


Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago, Dr. Keith Rowley’s October 2020 announcement that, “Carnival in Trinidad and Tobago in 2021 is not on” has not stopped local artistes and Carnival stakeholders from keeping the culture and festivities of the season alive. Among them stands Warrior Empress, who, in collaboration with Music Mill Studios will present Uncrowned QUEENS – a virtual musical concert featuring some of Trinidad and Tobago’s most promising Female Calypsonians; this event will be live streamed via YouTube from 8PM (AST) on Friday 5th February 2021.

No stranger to the Calypso arena herself, Warrior Empress (whose birth name is Allison Bernard) has been singing professionally for the past fourteen (14) years. She sang out of the Kalypso Revue from 2015 to 2019, was finalist in The NWAC Calypso Queen Monarch Competition from 2010 to 2019 – placing 2nd on two (2) occasions 3rd on another, and was also the First  Reserve at The National Calypso Monarch Finals in 2019 with her own composition ‘The You in You.”

Showing her true warrior spirit, Bernard is not one to retreat when faced with challenges. In a statement to the media Bernard said she was inspired to produce this show “on the heels of one of the governing body for the Carnival stating that they would not be holding any [Carnival related] activities… not even virtually.” With three (3) successfully produced online events under her belt: With Women In Mind’ – a Mother’s Day Concert in May 2020, ‘Vocals and Steel’ – a Father’s Day Concert in June 2020, and ‘Rise Up’ – an Emancipation Concert in July 2020, in addition to an ongoing, online weekly talk show entitled “The Feminine Drive” Bernard saw this statement as an opportunity to innovate, and “keep the spirit of Carnival alive in a new way”.
