    French, maybe. English? Definitely not. Honestly aside from maybe a handful of people, I know almost NOBODY English-speaking who listens to Zouk on a regular basis.

    If anything I'd say the Portuguese market for Zouk is second largest, since it's big in Angola, Cape Verde and Brazil.

    more english people listen to zouk than you think....why wouldnt they sing in creole if there wasnt a market there? in fact why would dominicans speak english if there was no need to connect to the anglophone world...i told u in another thread english dominates the world...

    Dude, Dominicans speak English because they were colonised by the UK for nearly 200 years and English is the language of education in that country. It has absolutely nothing to do with connecting with the Anglophone world because there are many Dominicans in Francophone territories (Guadeloupe, Martinique, ST Martin) as well. They are part of both the Anglophone and Francophone worlds.

    I couldn't tell you why she chose to sing the song in English but I can tell you that there isn't a huge following of Zouk in the Anglophone world on any scale near that of the French and Portuguese. She probably sang in English because she can't speak Creole all that good lol. 99% of Zouk is in either Creole or French so I doubt anyone would seriously market to the English-speaking market all that hard or is even studyin dem really.

    Basically. Not only that practically all of the mega hits are in Creole. Very few are in French. Creole is the mother tongue of this genre. I believe the same thing. She probably couldn't get the proper lyrics together for a song in all Creole so just did it in English.

    It's all good though the song sounds good. It has nice production.
    Ti sourit, ti sourit se nan pèlen ou rete
    Rat ki rat se nan pèlen ou rete
    Tèt zozo men pa ou, zozo kale men pa ou
    M ap konyen fanm nan jis solèy leve
    Bwa m kale tou wouj
    Kon piman , kon piman, Langyèt madivinèz
    Ou pa bezwen chandèl pou ou klere l

    people from every country enjoy zouk....take this for example. a lot of soca djs play zouk also despite the fact they dont understand the music....so if they get a zouk song they understand it helps a lot to relate. cmon uou guys seriously dont think zouk gets nuff play, when so much soca is zouk influenced today? look at a reggae artist on zouk beat. skbai if creole was popular and a big market, despite dominica being an english country a lot more dominicans would make a larger effort to sing in creole, for example in the cadence era 90% of songs were in creole (70's-80's) when the creole market was bigger than it is now....
