I have made REFERENCE to this in part about the STAGNATION of SOCA MUSIC. I have stated that these soca deejays play mediocre songs by ESTABLISHED ACTS at the PERIL of WAY BETTER songs by less known artists.
I will give you a PERFECT EXAMPLE of this.
In 2010, Luta came out with a song called "TIGHT SPOT," EASILY ONE of the BEST SONGS that year, yet these DEEJAYS HARDLY PUSHED it at the CLUBS and on the AIRWAVES.
This is a SONG that had CROSSOVER APPEAL, because anyone could have IDENTIFIED with it, but it was LEFT on the SHELF by DEEJAYS who had the WHEREWITHAL to PUSH it to HIGHER HEIGHTS.
Now, if that same song, with the same PRODUCTION, was sang by a WELL KNOWN ARTIST, these same DEEJAYS would have been PUSHING this SONG left and right.
"TIGHT SPOT" has all the ELEMENTS of a GREAT SONG. It has EXCELLENT LYRICS, EXCELLENT ARRANGEMENT by PARRY JACK and SANG SUPERBLY by LUTA, yet it was left by SOCA DEEJAYS to PICK UP DUST.
Nevertheless, BIG UP to VP RECORDS for RECOGNIZING GOOD MUSIC and so "TIGHT SPOT" was part of the 2011 SOCA GOLD CD.
LADIES n GENTS, I GIVE U "TIGHT SPOT" once more.
By the way, Luta, I FEEL your MANAGEMENT FAILED, because this is a SONG that NEEDED a VIDEO, but did not get any.
Moreover, how much was your MANAGEMENT TEAM doing in PROMOTING and MARKETING U and this song?
If you want to PLAY with the BIG BOYS, MANAGEMENT has to WORK their ASSES off, with the hope that will lead to you and music becoming a household name BEYOND the OBVIOUS places...that is what they're there for.
YUHHHHHHH SEEEEEEEEEE MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEee
