Sekon Sta - Kings & Queens (2017 Soca)

Sekon Sta represents the younger generation of soca music, and the subculture that surrounds it in Trinidad & Tobago. His best 2017 Carnival release, “Kings and Queens” captures the joys of celebrating life in a soca party free of worry, surrounded by good people and good vibes. The song title is a double entendre, referencing a traditional masquerade costume competition called Kings and Queens that occurs during Trinidad Carnival festivities. The melodic track urges the listener to seize the moment, over the foundation of an iron riddim section, an essential element of soca and a perfect close to any sweet and sweaty fete. — GabSoul
