MUSIC: Top Soca Songs This Carnival Season

Every IMG_1599carnival season there are some songs that provide a natural high on the road, the song where you give your best whine and of course the song that wins Road March because it will get you hype no matter how tired you are. Last year we pumped hard to Ministry of Road by Machel Montano, whined low and slow to Too Real by Kerwin Dubois (BTW both songs won the International Soca Monarch titles in 2014) and floated when Haunted by Machel came on.

And every year when carnival season winds down, we’re never sure the soca artists can beat the previous year — and yet they continue to do so. For 2015, our top carnival season songs and their videos are below. I would be very shocked if you haven’t heard some of these before. Please listen, enjoy and whine slow (it doesn’t matter if you’re at work, take a light bump at your desk)

1. LYRIKAL – LONER 

My personal carnival anthem 🙂 

2. MACHEL MONTANO – LIKE AH BOSS 

3. MACHEL MONTANO & ANGELA HUNTE – PARTY DONE 

4. FADDA FOX – DUCKING 

My personal favorite – I was ducking everything! lol 

5. DESTRA GARCIA – LUCY

Some others that videos are not here for 

  1. Erphaan Alves – Come From

  4. Benjai – Phenominal

Are there any other songs you wukked up too that aren’t here? What are your personal favorites?

Carnival pumping all summer, I cannot wait to hear what sounds the Bajan artists drop for Crop Over this year!

Yours in Mas
