Patrice Roberts has launched her very own calendar.
The 2016 calendar features the sexy singer in six looks:Carnival costume, lingerie, elegant, swimwear, fitness and party. With one themed look every two months, the calendar also features the lyrics for six of her 2016 contributions, one of which is pending release.
The calendar, Roberts told Looptt, is a signal of her rebirth.
After years of singing with Machel Montano, the singer parted ways with the band this year and is now enjoying life as a solo singer. Since emerging on the soca scene in 2004, Roberts has always been aligned with other singers, including Bunji Garlin, with whom she sang “The Islands” and Kernal Roberts, who wrote “Band of the Year”, a duet with her and Montano.
“I feel excited. It’s a challenge and I love a challenge. It was scary at first, feels like leaving your mom’s home. I am glad I took the opportunity to swim by myself cause a lot of doors are opening and I am doing great. I am booked up for Carnival, calls are still coming in and I am fully booked after Carnival, I am free for only one week after Carnival,” she said.
The idea for the Calendar, she said, came from photographer Sancho Francisco and she felt it was a clever move.
“I just ran with it. It is an opportunity to rebrand and being in people’s faces and people’s homes,” she said.
In the calendar, Roberts wears clothing by designer Neil Young, sponsored swimwear from Draya of Basketball Wives and a costume from Fantasy. Makeup Artist for the shoot was Aaron Peterson.
Only 300 copies of the calendar will be available for exclusive distribution.
