Here we go again Soca music lovers, we have the latest Soca music Top 10 chart for Trinidad and Tobago. The list is from COTT (Copyright Association of Trinidad & Tobago). The top three songs have changed places from last week's chart while Jub Jub by Kes dropped off the chart making room for DAP by Viking Ding Dong. Once again, the movement of songs feels a little wacky making one question the selection of the music played by the radio stations. 

Here is a little housekeeping regarding COTT and the current playlist. COTT is a non-profit organization that represents composers, authors, and publishers of musical works in Trinidad and Tobago. The organization collects and distributes royalties to its members for the public performance and broadcast of their works, including on radio stations. 

The COTT Radio Play chart is based on data provided by a sample of Trinidad and Tobago radio stations that report their weekly airplay to COTT. The chart reflects the total number of plays each song received during the week. A weighted average of the data is then used to adjust for the differences in the number of radio stations and audiences among them.

COTT:
"Our chart is informed by data obtained from VERICAST - the software used by COTT to capture this and other types of musical data".

Today we feature an infectiously fun and energetic song by Shaggy and Patrice Roberts titled, "Whine & Jumping". This one was released for all upcoming summer carnivals and Caribbean festivals in North America. This is one of those songs that people will be talking about for sure. It should be a go-to track as summer heats up the carnival music circuit. 

From the moment the song starts, you're immediately captivated by the energetic beats and vibrant melodies. Shaggy's unmistakable voice blends effortlessly with Patrice Roberts' powerful vocals, creating a dynamic and engaging duet. The chemistry between the two artists is palpable, and their voices complement each other perfectly, resulting in a harmonious and delightful listening experience.
 
Lyrically, the song revolves around celebrating life, freedom, and the sheer pleasure of dancing without inhibitions. The lyrics are simple yet effective, encouraging listeners to let go of their worries and immerse themselves in the moment. Shaggy and Patrice Roberts deliver their lines with enthusiasm and conviction, infusing the song with authenticity and passion.
 
We love the production but feel that 2:36 was a bit short for this song. However, the music video hits the sweet spot, and the lively action exudes the carnival spirit of the Caribbean basin. This song is a triumph for Shaggy and Patrice Roberts. It's a song that radiates positivity, joy, and an undeniable desire to dance. With its infectious melodies, captivating vocals, and irresistible rhythms, it's impossible not to be swept up in the sheer exuberance of the track. So, grab your dancing shoes, turn up the volume, and get ready to "Whine & Jump" to this fantastic collaboration.

Today is Mother's Day and it would be remiss of this site not to celebrate this special day with our fans. As a result, we decided to post a song that speaks to our audience. It reminds us of the beauty of motherhood and our love and caring for mothers in general. We selected a special song by the Mighty Sparrow. As a legend in the Calypso arena, Sparrow is adored in Trinidad & Tobago and throughout the Caribbean. 
 
So here we are and in the spirit of celebrating mothers' unconditional love and selflessness, Sparrow's enchanting song "Mother's Love" encapsulates the beauty of this eternal bond. Released just in time for Mother's Day (2000), this heartfelt tribute effortlessly captures the essence of mother's love in a captivating musical journey.
 
Sparrow's "Mother's Love" is a beautiful and emotive tribute that captures the essence of mother's love. It is a touching song that reminds us to celebrate and cherish mothers' unconditional love and sacrifice not just on Mother's Day but every day. Happy Mother's Day to all mamas worldwide. Enjoy "Mother's Love" by Sparrow.

Crop Over Carnival releases are here and today we present a potent collaboration that will light up Barbados' carnival spirit. The song is titled, "Bring D Thing" and is sung by Trinidadian Destra Garcia and Bajan son of the soil, Peter Ram.

This year's crop over 2023 will be blessed with this dynamic musical union. Both Destra and Peter Ram have delivered exciting music for carnivals in the past. This joint venture will surely excite their fan base as well as those who enjoy listening to music collaborations from across the Caribbean diaspora. 
 
Destra's smooth singing style and powerful vocals take center stage, effortlessly carrying the track with her remarkable range and charismatic delivery. Her voice exudes confidence and commands attention, perfectly complementing Crop Over's vibrant energy. Peter Ram, known for his dynamic stage presence, adds an extra layer of excitement with his distinct dancehall-infused verses, infusing the song with an undeniable edge.
 
The lyrics are all about people bringing out carnival's West Indian flavor. People bonding and enjoying themselves with their party behavior is evident, which encourages all partners to participate in the event. Kudos to the production team, Lunatix and the writing team (see production notes).
 
"Bring D Thing" delivers a lively and captivating anthem for the 2023 Barbados Crop Over carnival. With its smooth style, infectious melodies, powerful vocals, and vibrant production, the song is destined to become a staple on the festival's soundtrack, igniting the spirit of revelry and ensuring an unforgettable experience for all.
