2. BOUNDARIES WITH THE OPPOSITE SEX (LACK OF)
Kreyolicious Artist/Band: Zanmi
Kreyolicious Song: Nickenson Prudhomme
Kreyolicious Notes: Think of Mya’s song “The Case of the Ex”, and stop to ponder on all the relationship problems that arise because folks stepped out of line! Sure, you swear you were friends with him or her before you were in your current relationship, and should continue to maintain said friendship even after you’re in a relationship.
3. WANDERING EYES/EMOTIONAL/PHYSICAL CHEATING
Kreyolicious Artist/Band: Kreyol La

4. UNEXPRESSED DISSATISFACTION/INEFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION
Kreyolicious Artist/Band: Enposib
Kreyolicious Song: Chay

5. PERSONALITY MISREPRESENTATION
Kreyolicious Artist/Band: Kreyol La
Kreyolicious Song: Before and After

6. LACK OF TRUST
Kreyolicious Artist/Band: T-Vice

Kreyolicious Song: Lanmou an Danje
Kreyolicious Notes: She mistakes you for her father and biological provider. You feel like a savings account that’s constantly being depleted, more than you feel like a partner. Woe to thee!

Kreyolicious Artist/Band: Disip
Kreyolicious Song: Madan’m Mwen Te Met Pa Bon
Kreyolicious Notes: He’s no good! She’s no good! People are whispering in your ears, as if your love life concerned them. Or perhaps it’s you who invited them in your private life, and are living to regret it?Either way, your boo thang is being badmouthed by outsiders!
10. FADING PASSION/MIXED FEELINGS STAGE
Kreyolicious Artist/Band: T-Micky, featuring Medhy Coustos.
Kreyolicious Song: Kite’l Ale
Kreyolicious Notes: They thought it was forever, then she had second thoughts. This song captures the phase in the relationship, when the needle is hardly steady on the love mark, and it’s trembling too—as if it’s wanting to be on the mark that reads “indifference”.
