Trinidad and Tobago’s carnival is nothing without the sweet sound of the steel pan. Paying homage to the great men and women, and even youngsters who live their lives passionately beating the percussion instrument, the granddaughter of Ras Shorty I, Nailah Blackman, has unleashed a brand new track that’s both aesthetically pleasing and rhythmically hot, and we’re here for it!
On Monday, the hit maker, who only shot to fame about a year and a half ago, delivered her new release via LIVE social media updates, showing fans of Soca that their music can reach them beyond the traditional radio airwaves. The new track, “Iron Love”, features the Laventille Rhythm Section, and was produced by Anson Soverall.
Nailah’s been extremely consistent musically, over the past year. Her breakthrough onto the mainstream Soca circuit alongside Kees Dieffenthaller in 2017, certainly gave her the thrust she needed, and she hasn’t stopped since. Her collaborations with Jamaica’s Shenseea, Tarrus Riley and Ding Dong, have each placed her in categories that add to her musical profile, leveraging her as a Caribbean female artiste that isn’t afraid to grow beyond what she started off as.
Blackman’s vocals have also been featured on a single with Bosnian-born Swedish DJ and producer Salvatore Ganacci. That track’s called, “Kill A Sound Boy”.
