Sweet St Lu­cia Ricky T Style!

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

The newly-re­leased “Sweet St. Lu­cia” is the first song Ricky T has recorded about Saint Lu­cia. That alone makes the song a stand­out in a ca­reer that spans decades and has been full of ac­co­lades. Per­haps in­flu­enced by his long ab­sences from home this past year while on an ex­tended world-wide tour for his 2016 hit “Freaky Girls” or by a burn­ing de­sire to proudly de­clare his na­tion­al­ity, but com­ing days from the coun­try’s ob­ser­vance of its 38th In­de­pen­dence, it is a present to all Saint Lu­cians and a wel­come de­par­ture from his norm.

This is “Sweet St. Lu­cia” Ricky style. He name­drops places and events and talks about what makes us all quintessen­tially Lu­cian, like our love of good food, fes­ti­vals, he­roes, cul­ture and vibe – and does it in a way that lets you know this is Ricky T.

Writ­ing from Trinidad, Ricky T re­flects on what he loves and misses about Saint Lu­cia while also rec­og­niz­ing that which is Trini from their “pep­per” to Piarco In­ter­na­tional Air­port. But “Sweet St. Lu­cia” is about us, know­ing and hold­ing on to what makes us unique as a peo­ple. The song in­spires all to “Stand Up and Stand Proud” as we de­clare, “I am Saint Lu­cia.”
