.@FVRFVN & Khal-XL Trek Through The “Lonely Road” On New Track!


Trini artist FVRFVN is looking to return to music with a bang after taking some time off last year. With production being a welcome addition to his songwriting skillset, he is working on becoming one of the more prominent names in his Island, and soon the rest of the world. Kicking off his 2021, he releases the new track, “Lonely Road“.

FVRFVN showcases his production skills on this as he collaborates with Trini artist Khal-XL. Together they share lyrics about the battles they’ve faced in life, running away from the internal demons, but show that they’re handling it step by step. The Covid 19 pandemic has brought on situations that affect us mentally, and while we’re on a lonely road with them, we just have to do our best to move forward on the road to recovery. FVRFVN looks to follow up “Lonely Road” with more music this year, and he anticipates the addition of new listeners from around the globe. Hang in there, stay strong, and stay safe!

“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”.

OLDIES SUNDAY: Singing Sandra – Die With My Dignity (1987)


Today’s Oldies Sunday selection comes from the late Sandra DesVignes-Millington a.k.a. Singing Sandra. Today we go back to the 1980s with her track, “Die With My Dignity” a.k.a. “Sexy Employees“.

Written by Ortniel Bacchus with production and distribution by M&M Records in 1987, the track finds Singing Sandra sharing the challenges women face on the Island when it comes to finding employment. She shares the episodes where Employers try to take advantage of women in the workplace by sexually harassing and exploiting them for monetary gains. Singing Sandra puts her foot down as she’s not welcoming their advances, and would rather go elsewhere than to discard her morals and values for gains of any kind. Sadly this is what’s going on in workplaces around the world where gender inequality is concerned, and with the #MeToo Movement on the rise in the past few years, many men are facing the other side of the Law for their crimes.

Singing Sandra’s “Die With My Dignity” became a part of history as it helped her to win the titles of “National Calypso Queen” in Trinidad, and the “St. Maarten Queen Of The World“. The song would be later featured on the “Rising Stars ’87” album, and became one of Singing Sandra’s signature tunes. Since “Die With My Dignity”, she went on to become the second woman to ever win the Calypso Monarch title in 1999 after Calypso Rose. With another title win in 2003, she became the first woman to do it twice. One of the pioneers in Calypso industry, she paved the way for more female voices to emerge in a predominantly male scene. She continued to make music and seal her place as a Caribbean Icon until her passing on January 28, 2021. We remember her with this Oldies Sunday selection.

THANK YOU SINGING SANDRA!

Will The Wolf & Xodrew Team Up On “I’m Thinking You Should”


Trinibagonian Creative Will The Wolf continues his impressive run of releases in 2021. The rising artist continues to show his range with various topics covered, and amazes viewers with the accompanying visuals he and team put together. Today, we get to check his latest video for the single, “I’m Thinking You Should“.

Will The Wolf teams up with Recording Artist Xodrew here as they deliver a track that is hitting hard thanks in part to the production by Tano. Will drops lyrics that many can relate to, and with Xodrew’s contribution, the vibe is still the same here. Will has a commendable streak of tracks out, and only time will tell how his official project will sound. The video which in collaboration with Josiah Persad Films and Jonanthon Mora, finds Will rocking a skull face tattoo while looking dapper in between him going hard (and getting hit hard) in the Boxing ring, while Xodrew looks like he was transported to the 1940s as he finds himself chilling with some beautiful women throughout the video. One thing for sure, Will The Wolf sure knows how to pick a great team to put everything together.

Logiq Asks For “Protection” In New Video


It’s a cold world, and some hearts are pretty cold out there, but we make it a daily thing to ask the almighty for guidance through the dark times. For Trinibad artist Logiq, he needs God to watch his back in the video for his latest track, “Protection“.

Directed by LE Production a.k.a. Lord Edit, Logiq connects with nature to escape the craziness of the city, and speaks with God as he needs to be protected from those who oppose him and want to see him fail in life. When he’s back in civilization however, we see an instance of someone being fake towards him while conversing with a young lady. The badmind is real, you just have to be vigilant. Let Jah guide your steps, and not let the enemy prosper over your life. A great selection from one of the latest Trinibad artists out!
