    Based upon your answer I think that the song in question was correctly labelled by the uploader as a Zouk Love/Kompa so we finally got there.

    Why do you think the folks who posted the song to YouTube who are supposed to know about the music described it as sweet zouk (compa) love music in the description section?

    Also answer me this, which music came before which, compa or cadence-lypso?
    Why? Few reasons. One because they too aren't too sure about the distinctions themselves. Not only that you attract more people by labeling it both. And the majority of the popular songs coming out of all the Kreyol speaking countries are nothing more than hybrid songs that are mixing both the genres.

    Konpa comes before Kadans-Lypso obviously.

    A good example of a zouk tune with some kompa (minor) influence.

    This is what I would view as a standard Zouk Love track so I guess we can say that most Zouk Love tracks contain a slight Kompa influence.
