Jamaica and Canada link up today as OVO’s Party Next Door and the “Unruly Boss” Popcaan team up for the “Only U (Remix)“! Recently premiered on episode 30 of “OVO Sound Radio“, Popcaan adds his touch to the track that has been one of the standouts on Party’s “P3” album. Produced by Boi-1da, the single features a Dancehall flavoured production with a “Bruk Out” sample that was made popular thanks to the Xtra Large label’s “Bruk Out Riddim” which made its debut in 1998. Popcaan has been staying busy as he also remixed Roy Woods’ “Gwaan Big Up Yuhself” and other tracks that will soon come to light. For now, check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
Over the weekend, the “Unruly Boss” Popcaan made a guest appearance on Drake’s “OVO Sound Radio“. The nearly 3 hour long Programme also featured two sets from host Oliver El-Khatib as he mixed new music from popular and emerging Artists in Hip Hop. Popcaan’s Dancehall set however featured some of his old and new singles including “Ova Dweet“, “Unruly Prayer“, “World Cup“, “Fall In Love“, “Wicked Man Ting“, his collaborations including Aluna George’s “I’m In Control“, “Bad A Road” featuring Kiprich and Jah Son, the remix to Drake’s “Controlla“, Dosa Medicine’s “Badman“, and of course the now infamous “One Dance” Dubplate used at the recently held Red Bull Culture Clash. Listeners who were not fully familiar with Popcaan were treated to a crash course of sorts while fans raved as they heard their favourite Artist’s songs on the very popular show. While he celebrated another year on earth yesterday, what will the new year reveal for Poppy? Check out the guest mix below and share your thoughts in the comments section.

Vybz Kartel continues to flex his versatility in his music, even while incarcerated. Look out for his new project to hit the streets soon!

The music scene in Canada is just one big melting pot. With influences from Hip Hop, Pop, Reggae, EDM, Afrobeat, and Dancehall to name a few, it’s not a surprise when your favourite act knows the lingo from your music culture. Today, Nemesis, Rizzlaa, and Chillaa are all about their dream girls, mainly Rihanna. Titled “Bad Gal Like RiRi” and produced by Chillaa, we hear them speak on the qualities their ideal women should have and are on the hunt for her. If you’re listening and you fit the criteria, why not give them an @. This single was also featured recently on Major Lazer’s Radio show, and on Drake’s OVO Sound Radio.
