about

Just three years after Popcaan first stepped out in his Clarks as Vybz Kartel’s protégé, he has quickly established himself as one of Jamaica’s biggest artists. His distinctive voice, versatile style and positive energy has propelled him through summer smashes “Ravin” and “Party Shot,” pensive political tracks “The System” and “Dream,” and gallis anthems like “Only Man She Want.” Along the way, he’s piled up tens of millions of YouTube plays, a Billboard Hot 100 hit and high profile collaborations with Snoop, Pusha T, and Busta Rhymes.

His much anticipated debut album will be dropping on Mixpak in the first quarter of 2014, and we’re proud to release “Everything Nice” as the first single from the record. Popcaan lays his trademark catchy melodies and controlled flow over a minimal riddim produced by Dubbel Dutch that lies somewhere between dancehall and hip hop. Delivering a reflective and casually nostalgic track on the balance of working hard and holding a meds, the song is dedicated to his fans and their struggles. As Poppy whiles his worries away, the track eventually melts with the vocal, leaving a bittersweet blissfulness.

“Everything Nice” sets the tone for the LP, in name and nature. This is the first of a new palette of sounds and songs that carry Popcaan’s next chapter.
