Beyonce ‘Palances’ In Trinidad And Tobago

Published: Saturday 20th Feb 2010 by Trent

Beyonce was spotted dancing up a storm in Trinidad and Tobago recently. The singer concluded her ‘I Am…’ world tour in Trinidad’s capital city, Port of Spain, and held the show’s after party at the infamous Zen nightclub. Beyonce joined the crowd and partied to what seems to be her favourite local song ‘Palance’ by Bionic Blaze and JW, which she also remixed during a tour performance of ‘Check On It’. The song recently won Trinidad and Tobago Carnival’s Road March title for being the most played song during the nation’s annual Parade of the Bands competition.

It looks like Beyonce, who is still in Trinidad, has joined the extensive list of celebrities, including Jay-Z, that have fallen in love with my country. Soca is one of the most fast-paced yet addictive genres of music. Add that to Trinidadians’ ability to party harder than any other culture in the world, and it’s a completely intoxicating combination. My country’s Carnival is the largest of it’s kind and has inspired similar events around the globe including the West Indian parade during New York’ Labour Day and London’s Notting Hill Carnival.

With Janet Jackson experimenting with Soca music on her new album, I have no doubt that Beyonce will do the same as she seems completely enticed by the flare of the genre. If you think that ‘Single Ladies’ was a fast song, “you ain’t seen nothing yet!”

Sidebar: In case you’ve been wondering where I was all week, I was in the middle of Carnival!

    “With Janet Jackson experimenting with Soca music on her new album, I have no doubt that Beyonce will do the same” I know it wasnt your intention, but that sentence killed me, LOL, it seemed you said like she was going to copy Janet Jackson, it wouldnt be the first, it wouldnt be the last time, this thief is always copying everything from other artists

  10. LaKee February 20, 2010

    I kinda felt bad for her watching this. It must suck not being able to go anywhere and enjoy being there without having to have a swarm of body guards around and people announcing your presents someplace. We so take anninimity for granted

  11. RANDOM February 20, 2010

  15. koko February 20, 2010

    It would look more fun minus the security but she must be used to it by now. If Janets song explodes then all that means is Beyonce will not take a break musically. She always gives me the feeling that she has to be out there.

  16. Ben February 20, 2010

    She must have been really brave to do that in that crowd like that, she better be careful.

  17. Nh’tasha February 20, 2010

    Well, I went to the concert and it was really really great. I loved her performance. It was really energetic of course because it was Beyonce.

  18. Kimmy February 21, 2010

    Janet and Jlo need to sit down with there tried moves and whisper thin voices.


  19. mez February 21, 2010

    don’t be mad because Janet sets trends and not follow them. Janet’s new song with Pitbull will be huge because theres nothing like it on the radio. Beyonce will only hope on Janet’s wagon and try to copy. But that s*** won’t work. So stay mad

  22. Greg February 21, 2010
