The Drop: Patrice sizzles in new video, Motto cranks up the heat

It’s that time of the year again. Yes, it’s time for new soca releases. As the year rapidly gallops towards Carnival 2019, soca releases are dropping almost daily. Each week, Loop will give you a look at these new releases in this new series called The Drop. 

Here are the songs that were dropped over the last week:
