NEW YORK, NY (RHONA FOX, INC.)
The Caribbean's top female soca artist is set to drop her latest collection of hits on the masses this week, courtesy of Upscale Crowd Entertainment, Caribbean Fuse and TRACE TV. Destra Garcia unveiled her new album, HOTT, earlier this year with a Trinidad release in February, in time for the annual Trinidad Carnival celebrations. Now the soca icon will launch the album internationally in Manhattan, on Saturday, April 25 at the famed live-music venue, SOB's.
"I am really excited about the launch of my sixth album, HOTT, in New York," states Destra. "I haven't been there in a while and I feel a bit out of touch with my fans there. I am therefore extremely ecstatic about seeing and performing for them."
Already having produced four hit singles for the new season, "Hott," "Sassiness," "Bacchanal," and fete favorite "Obsessive Winers," featuring fellow soca stars Alison Hinds and Denise Belfon, Destra is now taking her pulsating soca sounds and high-energy performances to audiences worldwide.
She's the only soca artist who will be showcased on the Best of the Best concert in Miami on Memorial Day weekend, appearing with Rick Ross, T-Pain and top reggae/dancehall entertainers, including Beenie Man and Mavado. She was also recently chosen to top off Jamaica's soca season, performing at Bacchanal J'ouvert with her band Atlantik, in Kingston on April 17.
Destra launched her solo career 10 years ago, and has teamed up with international stars such as Sean Paul and Mr. Vegas for previous hits.
