(Loop TT) Fay Ann Lyons-Alvarez is urging Trinbagonians and soca lovers around the world to go out and buy her album.
Strong sales of the album, she told Loop, will show the music industry that soca has support and is deserving of its own category.
Fay Ann’s debut album, “Break the World” entered the Billboard Reggae chart on Tuesday, debuting at number three as soon as it was released. VP Records claims this was the first soca album to achieve this remarkable feat straight out the gate.
“On "Break The World" the soca sensation delivers a piece of her soul on 16 timeless tracks that are destined to become classics. The Billboard Reggae charting album features production work from Richie Beretta, Stadic Sound Productions, Keron “Sheriff Mumbles” Thomas, Dwain Antrobus, Kevin Marshall, and Darien Bailey. In the male dominated soca music genre, Fay-Ann's "Break The World" will stand as part of a legacy for the second generation Caribbean artist and a strong testament to the power and appeal of her artistry,” VP said in a release.
The charting has, however, drawn criticism from some who believe there is nothing to celebrate since the album is on a reggae chart.
