One of the most popular soca songs is the Game of Love and Unity which was the 2008 West Indies World Cup theme and sung by international stars such as Shaggy, Rupee and Fey-Ann. With rising popularity around the globe, the music of Soca has become of the favoured dance genres.

With many events held in many of the islands of the Caribbean, some of the best events are held on the island of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
