It’s December 31, a.k.a. New Year’s Eve a.k.a. the last Oldies Sunday for 2017! While many are looking forward to partying (or praying) into 2018, we’d like to present our last entry for the year. Our Oldies Sunday selection comes from the “Unruly Boss” Popcaan, but back when he was known as the “Prefect“. Titled “New Year“, this was produced by Notnice Records and featured on the “2010 Riddim” in 2009. In the track, Popcaan speaks on what he wants to experience in the new year including achieving great success in career, being able to better himself and others, avoiding imprisonment, and doing better than ever. His aim is to see the days of being hungry gone forever, while his plans include a new House, Car, and land “fi di New Year“.
Since “New Year“, Popcaan has seen things turn for the better in his career. Under the mentorship of Vybz Kartel, he went on to being one of the biggest names in Dancehall music with affiliations with International acts like Drake, his own crew (Unruly Gang), and International success that continues to grow. Not bad after dropping “New Year” huh? We at 13th Street Promotions would like to wish you all a great 2018, and may God bless you all!
