“Our vision is to propel Caribbean music globally, and what better way to do that than to capture the essence of the majority of Caribbean islands, which is soca in all its forms, and package that for the world to enjoy,” said Rhona Fox of Fox Fuse.

 Additionally, there are songs from Farmer Nappy, Lava Man, Fireyahs and Sedale. This is the second in the annual Get Soca series. The 2015 edition debuted and peaked at number four last year.
