For 2012 Ricardo is stepping out and strutting his talent by entering in this years Power Monarch with his song J.A.M and in the Groovy Monarch with his song Throw Me Out.

J.A.M written by Kerwin Du Bois and produced by Shawn “Mr. Roots” Mitchell. J.A.M is the true essence of Carnival, J.A.M is a masqueraders anthem “I come out to jump and mash up…..he can’t stop me and she can’t stop me ah jaaaamiinnnnn”. If you ever played mas especially in Trinidad you know it’s a time to wine, jump up and carry on to show people you and your band is the baddest on the road. J.A.M promises to be your Duracell for carnival, it’s destined to mash up Soca Monarch and the road.

Think back to the last fete you went. Sweet music playing, yuh head nice, and yuh wining, the music so sweet yuh eyes close and yuh enjoying yourself. By the time, you open your eyes the lights are on, and the Dj’s asking everyone to leave the fete because the party is over, but you refuse to leave until you’re finally thrown out, if you ever experienced this then you can relate to Throw Me Out. Throw Me Out was written by Ricardo Drue and produced by Shawn “Mr. Roots” Mitchell. Ricardo shows us his versatility with his crafty lyrics. Oh, let’s not forget how sweet and heavenly he and Edwin Yearwood sound together. Everyone who’s ever been in a sweet fete, or experienced a sweet wine can relate to this song and enjoy it to the fullest. Throw me out is sure to make its mark in the Groovy Monarch Competition.

Shawdy featuring Bunji Garlin is a tune for the young at heart. This tune has a ragga soca vibe sweet enough to entice your waist and set the mood for after the club. Shawdy is a very tantalizing song, encompassing the essence of the Caribbean with chutney, reggae, and soca fused together. Lyricist Bunji Garlin gives this track the edge it deserves. The music video shot in Antigua and Trinidad gives a sweet island vibe to soothe your inner urge.

Hope you enjoyed our small tour. Remember for this carnival whether you’re on the road ready to J.A.M, or in a fete waiting for security to Throw you out, or if you’re out limin with your Shawdy remember to give thanks to Ricardo Drue. Ricardo Drue a true cynosure in the soca industry and making his stamp for 2012. Don’t forget to wish Drue luck in the Groovy Monarch and Power Monarch.
