The song, which is featured on True Gift Entertainment’s Tropical Punch rhythm, is already a favourite in small islands such as the British Virgin Islands (BVI), St Lucia, Guyana and Trinidad. The rhythm and the song are a fusion of dancehall and soca which gives it a tropical vibe, fit for any event.
According to Raytid, he came up with the idea for the song while in Tortola, BVI, earlier this year.
“I did some Caribbean shows and while in the different countries, I realised they all have one thing in common; they love the soca/dancehall/ tropical-sounding music,” he said.
Caribbean Girls is about a Jamaican man who went to Tortola and met a Dominican girl he is interested in, at a party.
“It is played mostly at soca parties and I have been getting great feedback from many islands, especially St Lucia,” revealed Raytid.
The song is currently at number six on St Lucian radio Unity FM’s top ten dancehall chart. The Tropical Punch rhythm also features top artistes such as Demarco, Vybz Kartel, Spice, I-Octane, Pamputae and Razor B.
Raytid is also promoting the single Holiday Again, which is a collaboration with himself and Demarco, featuring Bravo Ravers, and other tracks such as Prove Yuself, Wine and Go Dung, Even Though You Gone and Fifty Shades of White.
