SERGIE IN DAT FOR 2017 CARNIVAL SEASON
Saint Lucian soca artiste Sergie is laying a claim to her place among the elite in soca music with the release of her new song “I In Dat”.
The soca single is also a build on what was a very good 2016 season where Sergie placed second in the Just 4 Fun Soca Switch competition and was a finalist in the Groovy Soca Monarch. She also performed at a number of events including Cooler Fete and Vavalry.
The lone female winner of the Piton Soca Starz competition that she won in 2011, Sergie’s new release is featured on the Ransum Records Temptation Riddim. Written by her frequent collaborator Presley “Scottish” Scotland, “I In Dat” was recorded by Desmond “Ransum” Auguste and mixed and mastered by Saint Lucian born-Canadian based producer Johann “Yogi” Deterville.
On “I In Dat’, Sergie boldly declares herself a Soca Diva, “When it comes to fete/I in Dat/ When it comes to jamming/I in Dat/When it comes to iron/ dem call me de Boss that I am/When it comes to liming/ anywhere I liming/When it comes to soca (soca)/I working it proper (properly).”
And it’s not only about her good time – she invites all, especially the Soca Divas like her, to “show off your waistline/right now is the time.”
Carnival is indeed our time and with bands already launched, soca music dropped, there’s no time like the present for Sergie to join the revelry with “I In Dat”.
Sergie is determined to make her presence felt on the local Soca scene this year.
