none of those songs are cross overs. i think too many artists try to replicate a trini sound, which is why the songs don't last. 40 Days 40 Nights is one of my favorite songs. and nothing about it is crossover.

If anyone had the forehand knowledge to accurately predict "cross over hit" soca music would be in a much better predicaments. To me cross over are just songs where the subject matter/lyrics can apply to any carnival or any setting anywhere.

Just a question? where exactly are you looking for the soca songs to "crossover" to???
No too sure if that question was meant for me If so, i always say on here cross over is for artist to be interested in. I love me LUCIAN soca music as it, unchanged. Where ever you are if you don't like it dats your lost. since i came back from slu carnival i have been bumping lucian soca in my car, house and phone when i am heading to work. I was simply responding to a question S-Pro asked me.

the question wasn't meant for only you per say but to everyone who was using the term "crossover". it is not an attack on you or anyone else...no need to be defensive.

so i ask again ..you used the term "crossover" in a particular context as it relates to the soca music for the year being "boring" ...correct?

so i am simply asking to beak down the meaning of that term "crossover" in the particular context you are using it in?


"crossover" to where exactly??? just looking for specifics! thats all!

Cross over in the sense that it crossed over to other shores, regional hit. For example over the past 4 yrs, or so, every year Skinny fab. has been releasing a track that pretty much a hit regionally, last year Onyan did kick in the she back door to same effect. This yeah it just seem to me that everything stayed home... Maybe it was just me...

PS: i don't take stuff personal so i eh have no reason to be defensive, if you want to discuss something with me i am always game.

Trinidad did not stay home, St Lucia stayed home maybe

St Lucia did not cross over since 2007
