Soca sensation Patrice Roberts courageously stepped into the realm of mental health awareness with the release of a poignant Soca track, addressing her battle with anxiety. In a genre where discussions around mental health are often overlooked, Patrice has boldly used her music to shed light on the struggles that resonate with many worldwide.

The 160 beats per-minute Soca anthem stands as what Patrice affectionately calls her “most sincere song,” born out of an unexpected moment during a studio session. Initially convened to listen to potential song pitches, Patrice, visibly in a somber mood, found herself unable to provide feedback. Concerned by her demeanor, those present inquired about her well-being, prompting a vulnerable revelation from Patrice about her ongoing battle with anxiety.

From that raw moment, a collaborative songwriting session unfolded, featuring the talents of Mevon Soodeen, David Millien, and Kitwana Israel. Recognizing the significance of the project, Patrice and her core team dedicated weeks to ensure the song received the attention it deserved, solidifying its place as a heartfelt testament to her journey.

In a bold move two days before the official song release, Patrice took to social media to share her struggles with anxiety. The response from her audience has been overwhelming, with numerous direct messages and comments pouring in from individuals who resonate with her story. The relatability of the project underscores a poignant lyric in the song: “As I lay in my bed with my head to the ceiling, say I’m drowning alone, and I’m lost in my feelings.”

The accompanying official music video, powered by Digicel (Trinidad and Tobago) Limited, adds a visual dimension to the emotional narrative, amplifying the message of removing shame and misconceptions associated with anxiety and other mental health disorders.

Patrice Roberts’ decision to address mental health challenges through her music marks a significant moment for the Soca genre and stands as a powerful contribution to the ongoing global conversation surrounding mental health awareness. Through her vulnerability, Patrice encourages open discussions and promotes understanding, fostering a supportive environment for those grappling with similar challenges.
