The song “We Jammin Still” was even popular at all Carnival fetes and many were predicting the mega hit will be a runaway winner for the Road March title.

The song was played 511 times, while the third most played Road March winner was Palance recorded in 2010 by JW & Blaze and played 470 times.
Soca superstar Machel Montano who was hoping to cop the title for the ninth time was disappointed that his “Your Time Now’ and “Beat It” had to settle for second and third places, respectively.
“Your Time Now” was played 72 times while “Beat It” got 18 plays.
