As we look forward to the summer of 2023, new music is being released every day, and today we have an exciting music release titled, "Summer Time". Get ready to embrace summer vibes with this infectious dancehall track from Turner. 

Turner, a Soca singer, delivers a Dancehall style vibe. This pairs well with the carefree and energetic spirit of summer. The track immediately transports listeners to warm tropical shores, creating an irresistible urge to move and groove. With its pulsating rhythms, infectious melodies, and vibrant instrumentals, the song encapsulates summer essence like no other.

 

After watching the music video release for the song, one wonders about the video quality. We believe it should be bright and sunny but appears dark. That is the one complaint we have about the release. The quality of the video has nothing to do with the song itself; we like this production.

 

Turner's "Summer Time" is a delightful gift to music enthusiasts seeking the right soundtrack for their summer adventures. With its infectious blend of dancehall beats, catchy melodies, and vibrant lyrics, the song encapsulates the carefree spirit and joyous energy of the summer season. Whether you find yourself on a tropical beach, at a poolside gathering, or simply longing for the warmth of the sun, "Summer Time" is a musical escape that will transport you to the heart of the season. So, turn up the volume, let the music wash over you, and embrace summer's vibrant vibes with Turner's sensational dancehall track.

Today on Island Vybe Radio one of the hosts on "The Morning Vibes" stated that Soca music is too vulgar. Wait, what? Oh, hell no! Then it dawned on me, Dancehall can be rancid with vulgarity but there was no inference to the state of Dancehall today. Soca music is on the rise worldwide while Dancehall is waning. Granted there may be a few 'rancid' Soca songs but usually, Soca music uses double entendre to tease leaving it to the imagination of the listener to discern the meaning of the song.  Let's talk about this...
 

Yes, Soca and Dancehall are both Caribbean music genres known for their upbeat and party-like atmospheres. However, the two genres differ in their vulgarity use. Soca music is generally more family-friendly, while dancehall music is more explicit.

 

There are several reasons for this difference. First, Soca music is often played at Carnival, a major cultural event in Trinidad and Tobago. Carnival is a family-friendly event, so Soca artists tend to avoid vulgarity in their lyrics. Dancehall music, on the other hand, is not typically associated with any particular event, so Dancehall artists are more likely to use vulgarity in their lyrics.

 

Second, Soca music, in Trinidad and Tobago, is often written by and for Trinibagonians while Dancehall music is usually written by and for Jamaicans. Trinidad and Tobago have a more conservative culture than Jamaica, so Soca artists are more likely to avoid vulgarity in their lyrics. Dancehall music, on the other hand, is often associated with Jamaican street culture, which is more likely to accept vulgarity.

Finally, Soca music is often adapted to promote tourism, while Dancehall music is often utilized to express social and political commentary. Soca artists are more likely to limit vulgarity in their lyrics to appeal to a wider audience. Dancehall artists, on the other hand, are more likely to use vulgarity in their lyrics to make a social or political statement.

 

Of course, there are always exceptions to the rules. There are some Soca artists who use vulgarity in their lyrics, and Dancehall artists who avoid vulgarity. However, Soca music is generally more family-friendly than dancehall music. We hope this post adds to the conversation or creates an environment for others to follow up on. In the end, Caribbean culture promotion is paramount. We need to find the formula that works and promote our local artists on the international scene. Perhaps one day we will see Soca as a genre on the international charts. Just keep hope alive!

 

We are going to end this post on a positive note with our YouTube music playlist of Soca vs Dancehall. No crazy stuff here, just some good vibes from both music genres. Enjoy!

Smooth, awesome and carries a message of love. Isn't that what we all need in this race baiting society today. A message of love to make things right and that is the message that Naycha delivers today. I just love this song! "Somebody" by Naycha has graced the airwaves with his newest release, "Somebody." This captivating track takes listeners on an enchanting journey through the realm of love, showcasing Naycha's remarkable vocal prowess and lyrical depth.

 
Naycha left the Soca music scene back in 2007 to pursue a path that led him to sing gospel music. Now he is back on the Soca music circuit with a mission to deliver songs that empower the soul. He wants everyone to understand that Soca is not just about jump and wave, wine and jam on somebody music. This is a positive thing, and the release of this song proves that he is on a path to deliver meaningful music that will uplift this genre we call Soca. We are blessed to feature the music of this gifted singer from Antigua. 
 
"Somebody" immediately captures attention with its infectious melody and polished production. The song's rhythmic beats blend seamlessly with Naycha's rich vocals, setting the stage for an enthralling listening experience. The opening notes alone are enough to pique curiosity and spark anticipation for what lies ahead.
 
We don't need insular thinking today and the hook of learning to love one another feel so right today. We just love the lyrical content of this song; "Somebody" delves into the universal theme of longing for companionship and finding that special someone. Naycha's heartfelt delivery brings a sense of authenticity to the narrative, making it relatable to a wide range of listeners. His vocal range and control are on full display, effortlessly navigating between smooth verses and emotionally charged choruses.
 
Naycha Soca's "Somebody" is a heartfelt and enchanting track that leaves a lasting impression. It effortlessly combines relatable lyrics, very relatable vocals, and smooth vibe to create a memorable musical experience. With this release, Naycha has firmly established himself as an artist to watch in the realm of love-infused music. Fans of contemporary pop with a touch of tropical flair will undoubtedly find solace in the sweet serenade of "Somebody."
