Get Soca 2015 debuts at #3 on Billboard’s Reggae Albums chart, dated 7th March 2015. This is the first all-star compilation from FOX FUSE – the largest worldwide digital distributor of contemporary soca music, and spotlights the FOX FUSE roster of talented producers and artists. Jam-packed with 21 blockbuster songs, this flagship, definitive soca collection features the top hits from the 2015 Trinidad Carnival season, from Soca’s biggest hit-makers, all on one album.

The Billboard charting is tallied from cumulative sales of the album, as recorded by Nielsen SoundScan, the largest monitor of commercial music sales in North America. The compilation also peaked at #3 on the iTunes U.S. Reggae Top Albums chart, #3 on the iTunes Canada World/Reggae Top Albums chart, and #10 on the iTunes U.K. Reggae Top Albums chart.
