Can KES Stage a Road March "Miracle" for Carnival 2024?

The song "Miracle" by Kes is a catchy and upbeat Soca tune that was released in 2024 as part of the EP of the same name. It has been well-received by fans and critics alike and has already received 12K views today (release date). To contend for the Road March title in 2024, the song would have to compete with other popular songs that are played during the carnival celebrations, with the carnival just 25 days away. This release may be a tad late to impact that competition. 

The Road March title is awarded to the song that is played the most at the judging points along the parade route. Some of the factors that influence the popularity of a song include its tempo, lyrics, melody, and appeal to the masqueraders and spectators. The song also has to be registered with the National Carnival Commission of Trinidad and Tobago (NCC) to be eligible for the title. The most important criterion is that the song has to be very popular. Can they achieve that level of popularity in such a short time?

Only time can tell...

Based on these criteria, it is possible that "Miracle" by Kes could contend for the Road March Title 2024, but it is not guaranteed. The song has a fast tempo and a catchy chorus that could motivate the revelers to dance and sing along. The lyrics are also positive and uplifting, as they express gratitude for life and its blessings. The song has a modern and fresh sound, which could appeal to a diverse audience. However, the song also faces some challenges, such as the competition from other established and emerging soca artists, the timing of its release, and the mood of the masquerade band leaders. The song was released in January 2024, which is relatively late for a Carnival song, as many songs are released months before the season to gain exposure and momentum.

Therefore, the answer to this question is not clear-cut, as many factors could influence the outcome of the Road March Title 2024. The song "Miracle" by Kes has some strengths and weaknesses that could affect its chances of winning the title, but ultimately, it depends on the preferences and opinions of the people who participate in and enjoy the Carnival festivities.
