Tuesday Tunes: Machel Montano, “H.M.A. (Happiest Man Alive)”

Tagged: , , , , , ,

Machel Montano‘s latest video, “H.M.A. (Happiest Man Alive),” is the lateest hit for the international soca star. While reggae music may be the preferred genre heard on the airwaves throughout the Caribbean, soca stars such as Montano, Kerwin Du Bois and Sparrow, are here to ensure Soca keeps growing in popularity. “H.M.A.” is another step in the right direction to help Soca gain the crossover appeal that reggae achieved with Bob Marley.

Until soca starts appearing on more stations in the States, I’ll keep adding it to my beach bar playlist.
