Here's the Original:


Here's a Remix by a Caribbean artist.


The reason I ask, is because it just sounds like Soca to me. What is this genre called? Who invented it? What country or countries is it popular? Where can I hear more of it?

Yes, I'm late, this is an old song...but please educate a man like myself on this. The song just got hot in Trinidad and the soca countries in the past couple months.
