Multi-genre Caribbean singer, songwriter and entertainer Champeon has unveiled his new Soca single entitled ‘Real Friends’.
This latest song adds to the mix of new releases for what is already gearing up to be a massive 2024 Carnival season in Trinidad & Tobago and the international festival circuit.
Champeon who hails from T&T and is presently based in the US state of South Carolina, has for years consistently represented for the culture of his native land and the Caribbean at large with several musical offerings and performances. He always aims to supply powerful messages within his music and continues this pattern with his latest Real Friends.
According to Champeon “Real friends” is a song dedicated to the people one considers true friends in one’s life i.e. those people (near or far) that provide honesty, unconditional love and support. The type of friends with whom one can maintain a strong bond due to a steady foundation of friendship, regardless of frequent or infrequent communication.
The infectious Real Friends was recorded by Jelani Harris (Studio 23 Music Group), written by Champeon (Ronnel Ramirez) & Nkosi Blackburne and produced by Julian Nelson (Juelio Productionz) who has produced hit Soca tunes for the likes of Machel Montano, Bunji Garlin, Kes The Band and the late great Blaxx.
Regarding the motivation behind Real Friends, he shared, “I think about all the people that are close to me in this life. I am so honoured and thankful to celebrate my friendship by releasing this song to show my appreciation to all my real friends. I am also giving thanks for my deceased friends who have been important influences in my life, so I also delicate this song to them.”
In the short time since its release, Real Friends has already gained encouraging reactions from listeners who have embraced the track due its catchy, modern feel mixed with old-school appeal.
In this current era of fleeting connections and digital relationships, Champeon seeks to inject a level of positivity in the world with this new song and hopes that it will inspire people to love and cherish each other, resolve issues and not take the real friends in their lives for granted.
Even while promoting his own releases, the multi-faceted Champeon is currently handing songwriting duties for other Soca, Reggae and R&B artistes and plans to unleash more Soca singles in the months to come.
