I’m in love with Lady Haiti
And when they called me to the Grammys
I wrapped her flag all around me
Cause I’m in love with Lady Haiti
I’m so in love they call me crazy
I left the music went to Haiti
Even though they tried to stop me
I’ve seen the earth shake right under her feet
She told me 'baby don’t weep'
I’m sitting on Oprah, tears in my eyes
I knew your story ever since a kid
Developed a crush when I heard what you did
1804 you made my people free
You the reason I feel I can be anything
She in the white sand
Under the hot sun, eh
Love when she talking that Creole, eh
Gadé bèl fanm
I’m in love with Lady Haiti
And when they called me to the Grammys
I wrapped her flag all around me
Cause I’m in love with Lady Haiti
I’m so in love they call me crazy
I left the music went to Haiti
Even though they tried to stop me
I’m in love with lady Haiti
Miss Haiti
Miss Haiti
They tried to make you turn on me for real
Said I stole everything that we built
You told me don’t bother, the truth's in my eyes
From the bottom of the buck and straight to the top
Every time you around I can feel the clock stop
Despite what they think, we got a chance
Cause we got one last dance
She in the white sand
Under the hot sun, eh
Love when she talking that Creole, eh
Gadé bèl fanm
I’m in love with Lady Haiti
And when they called me to the Grammys
I wrapped her flag all around me
Cause I’m in love with Lady Haiti
I’m so in love they call me crazy
I left the music went to Haiti
Even though they tried to stop me
I’m in love with lady Haiti
Miss Haiti
Miss Haiti
Sakapfèt, Sakapfèt, Sakapfèt
Sakapfèt chéri Ayiti map mandew
Sakapfèt
Leuw ou tombé gade jan ou lévé
Leuw ou lévé gadé jan ou
Pran fòs é leuw ou pran fòs pagen
Mounn kap kenbew Ou gen pouw
Dérapé avèk atakénn nou Pa Janm panike
I’m in love with Lady Haiti
Miss Haiti
I'm in love with Lady Haiti
Miss Haiti
Lady
Miss Haiti

Discover Talie's Debut EP 16 Novembre

Since Nathalie Cerin released her first two studio singles, Ti Nèg Chèlbè and Bèl Tifi, we've been waiting for a complete project from her. It's finally here, and it's a live EP she recorded on her birthday. On 16 Novembre, we find a more seasoned artist, with a firmer grasp on the world. Gone is the bubbly sweetness of her earlier material. The patina of life - wilted relationships, career shifts, last-minute apartment hunts - has molded her...

4Mula's Chapter 1

Jude and Carl Edouard (Carlitow) Deslouches have been on our radar since they dropped Se Ou Mwen Vle and the subsequent EP. Once in a while, the brothers would tease us with a new track. Late last year, they introduced 4Mula, a new band with fellow Montrealites and former Vibrasyon members, Romuald Paul and Benjamin Guirand. Their debut, "Chapter 1", is a groovy ride anchored by the Deslouches' warm vocals. It's the kind of album that will jump start any party and keep it rocking all night long. All you need is an aux cord. We...

Songwriter's Corner: Roody Laforest

"Cheri, mwen konnen m pa ase." That's what Roody Laforest sings on his debut single, Mwen Pa Ase. It takes an honest man to admit his shortcomings. But after chatting with the Montreal-based singer, we realized though Roody tells it like it is, he can be a little too hard on himself. Wikimizik talked to him about his musical roots and writing process. We hope you enjoy his straight talk as much as we did. Who is Roody? How am I supposed to answer this question? Let's make it short...

Songwriter's Corner: J-Ron

Ever since he dropped All I Want is You, Ronald "J-Ron" Jean, has been working hard mastering his unique blend of RnB infused Konpa and Zouk. And he sure has perfected it. Song after song, he drops silky vocals over buttery smooth tracks. We talked to the singer-songwriter about his writing, influences and plans to take his sound worldwide. 1. If J-Ron was not a singer-songwriter what could have been another path? If I wasn't a singer, I'd...

Five Diaspora Winter Anthems

A few weeks ago, all 50 states reached freezing temperatures. The Polar vortex may be gone, but most of us still can't feel our toes. Since humans can't hibernate, staying in and hunkering down is only a temporary fix. Plus, we have to brave the cold to pay those bills. Good thing, we have music to warm our souls. Quite a few Haitian artists have migrated to the States, Canada, and Europe. They've all experienced the winter blues and expressed their lingering homesickness in song. Here are a few of our favorites. They're a potent cocktail of frustration and nostalgia. We'd cry,...

Albums We're Waiting For

Though there's a couple of albums from last year we still can't get enough of, that doesn't mean we can't look forward to a great lineup in 2016. Here are some of the albums that we can't wait for this year. 1. Carimi Their last album, Invasion, has yet to come out the 5-disc changer in most people's cars. The live album, "Kite M Cho" made us fall in love with the tracks even more. With Michael's return to the band after a month-long vacation/mini retirement, we're sure...
