9. Lyrikal, “25/8”


Weโ€™ve all been there: at a party we wish would never end, ever. Some of us might want to go at it all day, or even all week. Trini soca artist Lyrikal takes it a step further in โ€œ25/8,โ€ advocating for just โ€œone extra hour and one extra dayโ€ to feed an unbreakable partying habit because, well, โ€œ24/7 is never enough for we.โ€ The Ma$tamind and Kay Gee production was actually released in time for Cropover 2012, becoming a soca staple and achieving party anthem status in Carnival season 2013,ย  and it is not difficult to see why. With lyrics touching on alcohol, backsides and of course a party that โ€œcannot done,โ€ย โ€œ25/8โ€ epitomizes the sentiments of all dedicated feters, and adherents of bacchanal. โ€”Marcha M. Johnson
