Blaxx, Starr George: Beware devils in sheep’s clothing
A new soca song with a decidedly dub-influenced beat, the song Beware is a catchy, upbeat, urgent warning song aimed at young people in poor circumstances tempted to follow false leaders. It’s both a cautionary song and an appeal for conscious change, and it’s the latest offering from soca singers Blaxx (Dexter Stewart) and Starr George (Brandon George).
Written by George, the Millbeatz produced song encourages all citizens to get involved in preventing young people at risk from turning to a destructive life of crime and violence.
Beware is the second topical message in as many years from the two veteran performers. They combined voices last year on the road safety anthem Designate which urged people on the roads to always have a sober driver. The song was picked up by local road safety NGO Arrive Alive and featured prominently at their rallies.
“It’s always been my aim to deliver positive messages in my songs. Over the years, that has never changed. Blaxx has always been a dear friend of mine and when I extended the invitation to him, he responded willingly on both occasions,” George said of their most recent collaboration.
Blaxx said: “Our youth are in trouble and it’s our responsibility as artistes, as parents, as nationals of T&T, to help them and guide them along the correct path.”
