Alphonsus "Arrow" Cassell, a soca musician who won global fame with his 1982 hit "Hot Hot Hot," died Wednesday at 60.

He died of complications from brain cancer at his home on the Caribbean island of Montserrat, said his brother, Justin Cassell, a singer-songwriter. The highlight of his career was "Hot Hot Hot," Justin Cassell said, who added his brother "took soca to all corners of the world."

Arrow Cassell was among the best-known artists of Caribbean-born soca, a music derived from soul and calypso that emphasizes music over lyrics.

In the 1980s, he performed on tours throughout Africa, Europe, and the United States.- AP
