Product Description

The summer’s hottest hit is already here - Kevin Lyttle’s sexy, Caribbean sunshine-soaked smash "Turn Me On." The track is already a global phenomenon, Top 5 on virtually every international chart, and now it’s exploding at Top 40 radio and MTV in the US. With that success, Kevin has not only established himself as a dynamic new global star, he also is in the vanguard of artists who are emerging from the Caribbean with a range of exciting new musical hybrids poised to follow the surge of dancehall reggae into worldwide prominence. Kevin’s fresh and innovative fusion of Caribbean soca music, American hip hop/R&B and Jamaican dancehall was the smash of St. Vincent’s yearly Carnival in 2002. Through Kevin’s live performances, the song saturated the entire Caribbean, spread to Caribbean communities in North America and the U.K, and eventually reached mainstream clubs and radio across several European countries and Japan. Over a two-year period of mounting popularity, and without any official international release until now, "Turn Me On" has emerged as soca’s biggest international crossover hit in 20 years. His self-titled debut album promises to be as groundbreaking and eclectic as his single, teaming Kevin with a slate of top names from the fields of dancehall, hip hop and soca, including Jeremy Harding (Sean Paul, Tanto Metro & Devonte, Beenie Man); Tony Kelly (T.O.K., Sean Paul, Sasha) and Salaam Remi (Nas, Ini Kamoze, Fugees), as well as "Turn Me On" hit collaborator Adrian Bailey.

Even as dancehall further installs itself as a sellable pop/R&B sound in the U.S., St. Vincent native Kevin Lyttle arrives with a sexy, party-ready variant on soca (soul-calypso). "Turn Me On," the single that ensured this album's release in the States, is a three-years-in-the-making hit that pushes the singer's lithesome voice into an irresistible organic-electronic track (the CD also offers a remix with reggae hard man Spragga Benz and a video for the song). The rest of the album keeps the groove up, making for one of the most likeable, boundary-breaking successes in recent memory; a cover of Terence Trent D'Arby's "Sign Your Name" is a timely reminder of that singer's late-'80s heyday. An even more likely follow-up smash, though, is the bumping "My Lady." Don't be surprised if Lyttle has kicked off a welcome new sound-fad in America, with more soca stars arriving quickly. --Rickey Wright

I just love his huge hit, "Turn Me On". It is the best song on the CD, but the rest come close, too, because it's all good. His voice is smooth, and his songs make you want to get up and dance. He is from the Caribbean, and was such a hit that he made it on the charts all over the world. The style that he sings is called "Soca", a mix between Soul and Calypso. I would recommend it to anyone who likes dance songs, R&B, or reggae. Great job, Kevin Lyttle. A++++++++

"Turn me on on" will help us remember the summer that was 2004. I also liked "My Lady", "Screaming out my Name" and "Dance with me". It won't win any Grammys but if you just want to chill and have fun, Kevin Lyttle is your man.

I understand that a few people thought the lyrics of this album needed some work. They must not be very familiar with contemporay soca music. This is Party music. Not music for soul searching. In general party music tends to be focused on 3 things: wine(figuratively and literally),women and song.

Having said this, this album is an excellent example of caribbean party music. The melodies are catchy. The beat is infectious and makes you want to dance, groove , jam and wine. The songs flow well into each other and you can just play the cd for a good party without having to play dj.

This is SOCA FETE music. Play this when you just want to sweat and have a ball.

If you want lyrics or social commentary try CALYPSO, the more serious sister of soca.

I first heard "Turn Me On" back in December 2003 before coming back home to California after spending a wonderful 4 months as an exchange student at the University of the Virgin Islands, St. Croix. My resident advisor gave me a bunch of CD's to bring home, one of which included "Turn Me On," along with some Dancehall and Soca hits. I was instantly hooked!!

When I saw the video on MTV and heard it on the radio 6 months later, I was ecstatic!! This song has been out for quite awhile in the Caribbean. I'm glad it's finally getting airplay in the States. I want to thank Kevin Lyttle for introducing Soca to the States because it gave me great memories of my car trips around St. Croix, my roommate from Anguilla, and every wonderful aspect of my Virgin Islands trip.

This whole CD is great. The standout tracks are:

- Turn Me On, both original version and remix with Spragga Benz

- Last Drop

- Sign Your Name (Kevin's cover of Terence Trent D'arby's hit song)

- Dance With Me (My FAVORITE song on the CD)

- Drive Me Crazy (The background is similar to the "Buy Out Riddim," which was also featured on Sean Paul's "Like Glue" and T.O.K.'s "Money to Burn")

- Sexy Ways (Hidden Track)

I think it's safe to say that I'm one of the few people that even has this album. And I didn't even buy it; I borrowed it from the library. Anyway, most of the reviewers here say that the best song on Kevin Lyttle's album is the classic "Turn Me On". I agree that that's the most recognizable song on the album, but I don't know about calling it "classic". (I mean, it's OKAY, but...)

"Turn Me On" is easily recognized because most of the rest of the songs sound just like it. To be honest, this album really sounds like an hour of the same song. The only songs that really break up the album's monotony is Kevin's cover of Terence Trent D'Arby's "Sign Your Name" (which neither helps nor hurts matters) and the completely disorganized "Mama Mia".

Subject matter gets kind of monotonous, too. A lot of the songs are about sex, and it especially doesn't help when he uses corny lyrics in songs like "Last Drop" and "Ya Kiss" ("You got a kiss that's so wet I wanna drink from it"???). Also, as another reviewer mentioned, Kevin's voice tends to get annoying sometimes, not to mention that sometimes it's hard to understand what he's saying.

It also doesn't help when he brings aboard average emcees with names like Mr. Easy ("Screaming Out My Name"). And Spragga Benz shows up on at least three tracks, and his verses neither help nor hurt the songs. Kevin Lyttle's album is good for a party, but I don't know if it'll give him lasting power for the next year.

Kevin Lyttle's album is a very fun album of the Soca sound so very popular in the Caribbean. I was surprised all throughout. Most of the songs have the same identical rhythm, but there's a catchiness and infectiousness on the first 7 songs before he slows it down and picks it up. And yes, I remember Terence Trent D'Arby's Sign Your Name and Kevin made a nice remake of it. Sort of that continuation of the trend of remaking '80s hits on most 2004 albums. I don't agree with the mixed reviews in some magazines about it because this is a very entertaining albums.

Great to see a son from he Caribbean doing so well - the islands have a wealth of talent just waiting to be unleashed.

In response to Tristan "meccax5" from Baldwin New York - Adrian Bailey the original producer of Turn Me On - Dance With Me and Call Me on Kevin's album will be launching an album early next month with a lot of artistes including Troots and Ice the album is called STING - we in the region are anxiously awaiting this album. It should be on sale right here on Amazon or on the studios website [...] Look out for it.
