Bunji Garlin’s 2013 Carnival smash “Differentology” has become a household hit in the Caribbean, credited with reviving the international appeal of soca. It’s been featured on Grey’s Anatomy, was a strong contender for MTV Iggy’s Song of the Year, and won the 2013 Soul Train Award for Best International Performance. Bunji even got to perform it with the Tonight Show‘s new house band, The Roots!

In a pairing no one saw coming, Trinidad’s reigning Soca Monarch has teamed with ’90s R&B quartet Boyz II Men for “Don’t Let Go,” a track which pairs the Boyz’—or, should we say, the Men’s—signature smooth harmonies melodies with Montano’s island boy charm.
