"This is Caribbean music"; Beenie Man performs alongside G.I. at CSM

Chutney soca artist G.I. has been on the lips of many chutney soca fans for weeks. The artist, who was a strong contender to win the Chutney Soca Monarch (CSM) Finals, was a fan-favourite with his hit song 'Divorce' and the remix with dancehall superstar, Beenie Man. 

Loop caught up with G.I. and Beenie Man at CSM last Saturday just after they performed their hit it song 'Divorce (Remix)' to talk more on their collaboration. 

Although he didn't win the Finals, G.I. was humbled by the energy and love he's been receiving in the lead up to the competition as well as on the night itself. He also expressed pride over being the first chutney soca artist to be an ambassador for Hennessy. 

Beenie Man spoke of the significance of the moment, merging chutney and dancehall, stating how important it is for him to be a part of Caribbean music, no matter the genre.
