He is known for his silky clean vocals and for producing quality music year after year. This year, he promises, will be no different.
Speaking to Bajan Vibes after a recent performance at Blakey’s, Biggie Irie said his plans were well advanced for Crop Over 2016.
“So far I have recorded two songs. Money Well Spent written by a Trinidadian, Cambon Regault. He sent me a couple songs and I took that one to the Red Boyz and I recorded it,” he said. “The other one, Spine, was written by Zig Boy Music from Trinidadas well.”
Biggie said, however, he was undecided up to that point about participating in the Pic O De Crop competition this year.
“I might do two more songs. I’m not sure if I’m entering Pic O De Crop as yet but everything is looking good so far,” he assured.
Biggie said he expected to have good music again this year. “We have had good music for the past few years. Last year our music was fantastic and I know we will have good contributions this year again and beyond.”
With regard to Bajans outsourcing their music, Biggie said it was nothing new, pointing out that a lot of soca artistes were coming to Barbados for their music as well.
“We are working with them and they are working with us. It’s just one Caribbean but it has been going on for quite sometime now.”
In the meantime, while he gets ready for Crop Over, Biggie is keeping busy doing corporate gigs and some light travelling. (DB)
