The Wining Club Anthem Heard Around The World
Today Skempi News takes another look in the vault of Caribbean music. This time around it takes us to the island nation of Saint Vincent and Grenadines. Why? That is namely the nation Kevin Lyttle calls home, the man who basically took over the world in 2004 with the global smash “Turn Me On”.
Born Lescott Kevin Lyttle Coombs (1976), the Vincentian soca artist actually first released “Turn Me On” as a soca ballad in 2001 and it enjoyed some minor success in the Caribbean. But then he signed with Atlantic Records in 2003 and a remixed version of the single was released as an official single at the end of the year in the United Kingdom.
In 2004 the hot single was introduced to the rest of the world and what an introduction it was: it became a worldwide hit, reaching number 4 in the singles charts of the United States, number 3 in Australia and in the top 5 of many European countries.
