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.
Dancehall Artist Popcaan has been in demand ever since he dabbled in the International music playground. With tunes with Pusha T, Young Thug, Cardi B, and an appearance on Drake’s “If You’re Reading This…” to name a few, he now joins London Electronic Music duo AlunaGeorge on “I’m In Control“. AlunaGeorge, who are still riding high off their DJ Snake assisted “You Know You Like It“, dropped this as the first single to their upcoming “I Remember” album which is set to be released this Spring. With AlunaGeorge’s upcoming appearance at the Paradise Lost EDM Festival in March, will this be a part of their set? Check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
After blazing the airwaves and the streets for months, there is finally a visual for Jamie XX, Young Thug and Popcaan’s “Good Times (I Know There’s Gonna Be)“. Directed by Rollo Jackson, we see Jamie getting the crowd hype with the single in one location, Young Thug vibing in another, and Popcaan chilling on a balcony. Nice visual, while I like the placements of “Good Times“, I was disappointed in not hearing Popcaan’s verse in this. What I’ve found out recently is that this single has been featured in the soundtrack of NBA Live 16 so big ups to the “Unruly Boss” on the achievement.

With his name being spread to a larger audience and a debut album on the way, Popcaan has come a long way from being a former member of Vybz Kartel’s Portmore Empire. Tonight he had a chat with Winford Williams about the things that are going on in his life. Here he spoke about his former boss’ guilty verdict and sentencing, gaining popularity overseas and his experiences, staying away from conflicts and being a big part of his family, his debut album “Where We Come From“, and his upcoming performance in Jamaica. Winford Williams also gave Popcaan some words of encouragement in the end and I also liked how he spoke about his little brother’s progress.

This is another Gully x Gaza collaboration! After dropping the music video recently, Popcaan teamed up with Mavado to release the “Everything Nice” remix. Produced by Dubbel Dutch, we hear Popcaan and Mavado make a dedication to living life to the fullest, enjoying your hard work and making it from nothing to something. They both held their own on the remix and if you know how music videos are, you could tell Mavado would be on a remix. Is Ace Hood doing a remix as well? Popcaan’s debut album, “Where We Come From” is scheduled to release in June. What do you think of this song? Check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
