Precision Productions, the studio known for hit riddims such as the 3Zero, Antilles and 10x Over riddims, has dropped its first riddim for Carnival 2020.

The Bittersweet Riddim features some of the hottest young voices in soca today such as Nailah Blackman, Nessa Preppy, Preedy and Sekon Sta. 

Also featured on the riddim is Nigerian singer Niniola Apata, the Queen of Afro-House, known as the human radio in her country.


"A riddim that we dedicate to the creators, lovers, and holders of music's greatest secrets; the good and the bad, the divine and the profane, the Bittersweet essence of it all, our musical truth. And who better to bring all of these aspects to life, other than a truly gifted grouping of millennial voices. Individuals who fearlessly unveil the songs of their hearts every time they step up to a microphone," Precision said in a release.

In the first track, Precision continues its tradition of building Soca bridges with international voices. Apata brings her stunning vocal range for the first time ever in this genre, with "Pocket", a hypnotising call for love and acceptance.

On "I Tried", Preedy, makes an emotionally melodious plea while Sekon Sta reminds us about balancing the bitter with the sweet in his powerful social commentary "Mr Badman".

Nailah Blackman and Konshens tease listeners in the flirty number, "Slow Wine" and Nessa Preppy's signature sultry tone closes off the riddim, as she entices with an unforgettable dip in her "Honeypot".
