View Full Version : Anyone know the name of this song?

All week I heard some song that goes "Bacardi, hielo, limon, Coca Cola" and pretty much is just that over and over again. I was told that King Africa sings it but although he has a song by that name, amazingly it's a different one. Anyone know the song I'm talking about?

The song is by "King Africa" I believe is called Acardi but you may see it listed as Bacardi.
Here is a utube video to dance to.

Thanks for the reply, I found it on iTunes today and downloaded it. I'm really kicking myself for not buying the CD they were selling on the Kukoo Kunuku. It was full of great party songs.

Okay, how do I download from youtube to itunes/ipod? :confused:

I cannot find King Africa's Bacardi, Hielo, Limon, Coca Cola for sale anywhere under any number of spellings of Bacardi/Acardi.

I forgot to buy a cd also so I went on the Kukoo Kunuku web site and asked if I could buy one. They were happy to do it. Got it within a week.

Hey Lisa I never new what that song was called. Just went to a wedding & everyone was doing it. I had fun trying but didn't master it.
I can't figure how to download to itunes/ipod either.
I would love to burn a CD of Aruba themed music, or even buy one. Do you know of any? I love the song they played on the TV ad for Aruba last winter. Don't know what it is either :confused:
Anyone have any suggestions for me as far a music & how I can get it? Would love to play it at my party on the 13th.

I still find Virgin Megastores to have the best selection of Soca music. https://www.virginmega.com/ If you go to "music, genre, soca" it will list what they have available.

Good one Lisa, Great ringtone...I sat back and had a good chuckle to myself after it downloaded.....

hey Lisa,

There are Aruban artists who sing that bacardi song. The groups name is called BMW. The version you all hear when you are in Aruba is by this band. They have great carnival songs. They also have the wiper song...

Wow Lisa you have quite a playlist there!
Something about that music makes you just get up & dance!
My dog thinks I'm crazy:eek:
