Soca, calypso, dancehall, dub: Caribbean culture’s impact on music is hard to overestimate. This playlist doesn’t narrow the sound, nor does it aim to keep on top of every new release. Instead, think of it as the story of Caribbean pop as told through some of its most classic tracks. The sound varies, but the spirit of pride and celebration holds. And to anyone looking for a quick education, welcome in. Our editors mix things up weekly, so if you hear something you like, remember to add it to your library.
