Vincy Music

i think st vincent is contributing a lot to the evolution of soca (i e ragga soca), and although they don't get much recognition, the artistes' talents are appreciated. the music has shown significant progress and 2008 may be their year! jamesy p, zoelah, and bomani definitely held it down in 2007.

I do give Barbados their respect when it comes to soca but lets look at the past couple of years. Their 2 biggest stars (Krosfyah and Alison Hinds) are not producing hits anymore. Since 2005 they've had a string of one hit wonders. Mr. DJ in 2005 with waistline lickin shots, Biggie Irie and Peter Ram in 2006 and now, Mr Dale now. They do still produce good music but they're not as dominant as they once were. Now, Vincy artists haven't been the most consistent but through the years, vincy producers have always produced hits. Hairy Bank and Turn Me On in 2001, Busy Tone in 2003, Nookie and Turn Around in 2004, Wet and Home for Carnival in 2005 and Party Animal, Go Down Low, and Bashment in 2007. Adrian Bailey and Mark Cyrus have made an impact on soca but haven't recieved the credit they deserve. Bomani had 2 hits in back to back years and Jamesy P is back with another hit since Nookie in '04, so it looks like Vincy artists are starting to build consistency. Even though Zoelah is new I can see her doing really well in the future. Problem Child also has the versatility to be successful. And lets not forget Becket in the 80's, Vincy music has always been a force on the soca music scene.

Are you 4 real?

Ragga soca has long been established and evolved a number of years ago. Correct your comment and say it correctly i.e."St.Vincent ragga soca singers are now singing songs that are giving Trini's a run for their money".
