It's Patrice again, and it appears we just can't get enough of this talented Soca Princess. “Cyah Hear Yuh” is a lively Soca track that infuses infectious rhythms with Patrice Roberts’ soulful vocals. Released as part of The Butterfly Project, this song has the potential to become a favorite on dance floors for carnival fetes across the Caribbean basin. 
 
Live, love, and be happy! Yes, love yourself first, and everything will fall into place. The lyrics of “Cyah Hear Yuh” revolve around empowerment, self-expression, and resilience. Patrice Roberts encourages listeners to embrace their individuality, block out negativity, and dance freely. The title itself, which translates to “I Can’t Hear You,” reinforces the idea of tuning out negativity and focusing on joy.
 

Self-empowerment is the key to a happy life; just ask Patrice. Oh, what is even better? Just listen and learn. “Cyah Hear Yuh” celebrates individuality, resilience, and the joy of dancing without inhibition. Patrice Roberts’ powerful vocals and the song’s infectious beats make it a must-listen for Soca enthusiasts worldwide. So, turn up the volume, let go of inhibitions, and groove to the rhythm of this spirited anthem!

Oh my, Patrice Roberts is on fire, cooking up sensual musical delight for her fans. Today we feature her latest music release, titled "Cook It." Patrice has consistently delivered sweet "Groove-Soca" music that beckons hips to roll with sensual intentions. “Cook It” is no exception—it’s a spicy concoction that blends irresistible rhythms with Patrice’s signature vocals.
 
Never get between a West Indian's love for good food and sensual Soca music. The lyrics of “Cook It” are as flavorful as a well-seasoned dish. Patrice sings about love, desire, and the intoxicating feeling of being close to someone. The metaphor of cooking adds a layer of sensuality—imagine simmering passion, sizzling chemistry, and a dash of spice. It’s a recipe for romance, served up with a side of groove. The imagery enhances Patrice's storytelling.
 
Kudos to the video production team, directed by Lord Edit. The visuals for “Cook It” are a feast for the eyes. Picture colorful Caribbean scenes (some real and some imagined), vibrant party scenes, and teasing dancers. Patrice herself is a vision—radiant, confident, and ready to ignite the dance floor. She surely expressed herself in new ways with her dance moves and various outfits worn for the music video. The video captures the essence of Soca culture: joy, movement, teasing sexuality, and unapologetic celebration.
 
Patrice Roberts has cooked up a musical feast with “Cook It.” We love it all: the music, the vocals and the visuals, all so damn good! It’s a reminder that music transcends borders and brings people together. In the grand tradition of Soca music, “Cook It” by Patrice Roberts is a spicy blend of passion, rhythm, and pure fun. It’s a reminder that music transcends borders—it unites us on dance floors across the globe. So, next time you hear those irresistible beats, channel your inner Patrice and cook up some love as only Soca music can.

Today, we lean on one of our favorite DJs from the Island Vybe Radio family of radio jocks. From Trinidad to Philadelphia, we present a mixtape by Dj PhilaTrini for your listening pleasure. With the release of "I Love Soca 2024; Carnival Tabanca," the lively rhythms of Soca music have once again grabbed center stage. This dynamic mixtape, which is a part of the well-known "I Love Music Series," captures the essence of the Caribbean carnival by bringing exquisite songs, captivating beats, and an uncontrollable need to dance. This is not just an island vibe phenomenon; this is the vibe of the Caribbean mixed and mastered by DJ PhilaTrini. 
 
Let's release all your pent-up feelings; this is your carnival tabanca music release! For those who are unaware of this phenomenon, "Carnival Tabanca" describes the sense of longing and nostalgia that follows the thrilling days of carnival festivities. When the vibrant and multicolored costumes are put away, the music fades, and the streets get back to their regular pace, it's a bittersweet feeling that lingers until King Carnival comes back to release the people from this dreaded malaise. But do not worry—this mixtape will ensure that the carnival atmosphere endures!
 
As winter wanes and spring ushers in a new beginning, this mixtape is the music for your dream carnival, "I Love Soca 2024; Carnival Tabanca," whether you're nostalgic for previous carnivals or excitedly anticipating the next one. This mixtape's soul-stirring compilation and contagious Soca tunes will transport you to the heart of Caribbean celebrations; all you have to do is immerse yourself in the music transitions so skillfully done by DJ PhilaTrini. 
 
So, turn up the volume, grab your imaginary carnival costumes, and dance like nobody’s watching. Let the rhythm of Soca wash over you and let the carnival tabanca fade away with sweet music curated and mixed by DJ PhilaTrini. Enjoy!
