.@PopcaanMusic Checks In With @JorjaSmith On “Come Over”!


International Poppy is at it again! Fresh off the release of his highly anticipated “Fixtape“, Popcaan continues to cross seas and plant the Jamaican and Unruly flags in various territories. Finding himself in the pop scene this time around, he connects with Singer Jorja Smith on, “Come Over“.

Produced by Dre Skull, Pasque, MadisonLST, and Cadenza, we get a Dancehall flavoured/sampled track that finds Jorja wanting to “fix tings” with her love interest, while Poppy smoothly steps in the fire off some slick lyrics. Accompanying the single, is a Future Power Station animated visual which was directed by Amber Grace Johnson. A not too fast, not too slow release here, definitely something to slow wine with that special person with. With the pandemic causing a lot of distance between many, may the Zoom and Facetime calls find this song a worthy part of the soundtrack.

OLDIES SUNDAY: @MichieBadGalMee x L.A. Luv – Jamaican Funk (1990)


For today’s “Oldies Sunday“, we’re going give it you Hip Hop style. For those unfamiliar, Hip Hop’s roots traces back to Jamaica. While many have done tremendous things for the genre and its culture, we have to remember the pioneers. Jamaica has DJ Kool Herc, and also Michie Mee, a Canadian Hip Hop pioneer. Today, we feature Michie Mee’s single, “Jamaican Funk“.

Produced by King Of Chill and released through First Priority Music in 1990, “Jamaican Funk” was a collaboration between Michie Mee and DJ L.A. Luv, and was a single that helped to spawn the growth of the Canadian Hip Hop movement. It was also one of the first singles that blended Hip Hop and Dancehall as Michie deejayed and rapped throughout the track. The single did very well for Michie Mee, and was given a remix called, “Jamaican Funk Canadian Style“. Both versions were featured on Michie Mee & L.A. Luv’s album, “Jamaican Funk-Canadian Style“, which was a success for the duo as the album crossed borders, charted on American charts, and was nominated for a Juno award. Since “Jamaican Funk”, Michie Mee went on to make more moves as an artist including founding the band, Raggadeath, influencing the new generation of artists, and kicking down the door for many of your favourites. She also dabbled in acting with roles in the film “In Too Deep“, and appearing in TV shows like “Soul Food” and “Da Kink In My Hair“. She is the Queen of Canadian Hip Hop, and a yaad she come from!

Reasonably priced, the course is easily accessible during the Covid 19 pandemic, as many are unable to attend physical classes. When asked about her decision to play her part in Online learning, she shared that it was the recommendation from a few peers to venture into that field as she learnt over the years that she’s a role model to many, and the course is one of the ways she wants to impart her knowledge, and give back to the communities who have supported her career.
