Just a note - This year CDC did not hold a semi-final competition for Soca Monarch. I believe that was a big mistake. Among these listed, there are may songs that have been rejected for air play, and are therefore unpopular with the crowds. We all know, the opportunity for such tracks to place in competition is slim to none....so it's safe to say, some of those songs are taking the place of other songs that ought to be there. Where is Danielle Veira, or Lively, or D'Lanlord? That's my 2 cents, what do you think?
Love and Soca,
