Once again, Anderson Blood Armstrong and his posse of artistes gathered at De Monsta Grill & Bar on Wednesday night to launch his album Soca In A Flash. The album is another collaboration between Blood and other artistes such as Mikey, Peter Ram, Fate, Brett, Keda, Summa, Livia, Hypasounds, De Cameraman. Armstrong said the album almost didn’t happen but when he heard the music, it inspired him to push and get it going. “I just decided, you know what, it makes no sense to just have all of this music floating around in the air, so I decided that we come together and do a proper album launch and benefit from it,” he said. He added that his love for the art form and Crop Over sometimes outweighed other issues, whether financial or otherwise. “I just put faith in God and He comes through in many ways,” Armstrong said with a smile. Soca In A Flash will be the first album ever in Barbados to be sold primarily on a flash drive in addition to discs. (SM)
