New York-based starlet Chai weaves her way into the middle of the build up to Carnival 2016 with the release of her debut soca single “Zig Zag”.
The rising soca star teams with Artica Productions on the self-penned track that’s already receiving rave reviews across the soca scene in the Big Apple. The song with its catchy hook and trademark dance gives soca audiences a peek into Chai’s creative process.
“Soca has always been a passion of mine and I’m really excited to be back on the scene. We had a lot of fun in the studio creating the song and I just want people to feel that energy when they listen to it. That to me would be mission accomplished,” said the supremely confident performer of the track.
Chai, real name Chakiya Arthur, is no stranger to the Caribbean music scene in New York. The 26-year-old Brooklyn native has collaborated with several producers and soca artistes in the big apple including Starblue Entertainment and Mastermind Productions.
She’s also built a reputation as a budding song writer having collaborated on the scripting of Drupatee’s “Dulahin” with StarBlu and Antiguan soca queen Tizzy on her 2012 hit “Road Calling”.
“The music has always been in me. From a young age I knew music would be an important part of my life. It’s been a blessing and I’m just happy to have the opportunity to share that gift with a captive audience,” she said.
