Out of St Lucia, the musical duo known as Lu City has recently released two romance-inducing afrobeat tracks, ‘Need You In My Life’ featuring the soca king Machel Montano, and ‘Twaka’ which features the Haitian-bred musician, Kanis. The group has integrated afrobeat into their musical style throughout their existence which has led to several successful tracks like ‘Sa Ka fete’, ‘Starting Over’, and ‘Movay’, to name a few.
‘Need You In My Life’ which is on Machel Montano’s wedding album is their second collab with the King of soca, the first being ‘Let It Go’ in 2018.
Ever since winning the ‘Artiste award’ at the Digicel Machel Montano Music Academy in 2017, Lu City has continued to make their presence felt on both the local and international music scene. Their physical attractiveness together with their perfect blend of Afrobeat, Dancehall, R&B, and pop with Creole-infused ballad, makes them popular with the ladies and destined for stardom.
Lu City comprises St. Lucian artistes Jean Atem (real name Jean Atem Farah) and Ryie (real name Tylor Ryie Auguste) who first met as teenagers in 2012 combining their different musical talents into a potent creative force. More of their interesting story can be found in our featured article ‘Lu City Lucians On Their Way To Stardom’.
