The year 2015 has been a breakout year for Ricardo Drue. After placing second runner up at the International Soca Monarch Competition in Trinidad & Tobago this February, he defended his Power Soca Monarch Crown at the Antigua & Barbuda Soca Monarch competition in July. Not willing to lose momentum from his international hit Vagabond, Ricardo Drue has cranked out two more monster hits for 2015 and Soca lovers are saying YES!
His first big release of 2015, Professional already has over 200,000 views on YouTube and is continuing to gain momentum throughout the Caribbean, Canada, North and South America. His fans demanded more after hearing Professional and out came his newest hit; Bet. Released just over a week ago, Bet is already lighting up the airways across the Caribbean, is making its way onto international airways and has 60,000 views on YouTube.
Ricardo’s hard work and dedication to his music manifested in nominations at the International Soca Music Awards and the COTT awards, where he won Best Soca Music Video of the Year 2015 and Breakout Artist of the Year respectively.
Ricardo recently performed in The Cayman Islands and Jamaica to crowds that have been begging for more Ricardo. He will be performing in Bermuda for the Bermuda Hero’s Weekend 2016 Launch Party on November 20, 2015 and is preparing to give the crowd a performance they won’t soon forget.
As the 2016 Carnival year approaches, limits will continue to be surpassed and the members of ID Nation will not be disappointed.
