    Konpa Remake??????

    This is a merengue track called Mal De Amor by the artist Juan Luis Guerra. I know Sweet Micky did a cover of this track on one of his cds...it was called Konpadirek...now supposedly Mal De Amor is an original track...but something tells me it is a remake of an older haitian konpa classic...can't put my finger on it....maybe someone can help me....or correct me if I'm wrong about Mal De Amor being a konpa remake.

    Here's the video:

    It is a remake of one of the most well known kompa songs originally done by Nemours Jean Baptiste.

    Thanks...apparently it is suppose to be a cover of Nemours' Rhythm Commercial track...is it me tho or the two tracks don't sound anything alike??? plus Sweet Micky's version sounds alot closer to Guerra's Mal De Amor....which he interestedly called Konpadirek....It's not like Micky's other tracks such as Suav Suav...where u could see the clear connection to his cover of Elvis Crespo's Suavemente....anyone share my thoughts???

    Here is Nemour's Rhythm Commercial:

    I don't think this is it...I've heard something closer.
