Popcaan in hot 97 rotation

Popcaan is really Ravin’! After being featured in Complex Magazine is continuing to make his mark on the international scene. His hit – Only Man She Want, was this week added to New York’s HOT 97 playlist. Everybody is going to know him now.

For  it’s not a  surprise as our followers already know this website has been covering all the latest sounds and news about the young raising reggae dancehall star.

Missgaza has always been pushing Popcaan tunes in her dancehall live sessions, beginning more than three years ago, playing Popcaan in Miami lounges such as LoveHate & Jazid since 2010, hear us on this. Very few heads knew about him 3 years ago, but at missgaza was already clear Popcaan was going to make a name for himself, because artist sounded fresh and unique since day one.

Was just a matter of  time for him to blow up. After doing so well at Sting in December and scoring in the  UK BBC HOT LIST for 2012, being featured in Complex and gaining rotation in Hot 97 , it’s important now as ever for the young artist to stay focus and work hard as always managing to stay fresh and humble as when asking for a chance, at the beginning.

Popcaan, real name Andre Sutherland, hails from St. Thomas before relocating to Portmore, St. Catherine, he got some mainstream attention after his first international hit single, Clarks, alongside mentor Vybz Kartel. Since then (and before then) he has created a string of hits including, Ravin’ and more recently, Party Shot.

One of the main forces behind Only Man She Want’s inclusion in HOT 97′s playlist, Johnny Wonder, says he is extremely proud of the young deejay’s snowballing success. Wonder, executive vice-president of the digital distribution company, 21st-Hapilos, has also a hand in other Reggae and Dancehall tracks being added to the station’s playlist under the 21st-Hapilos’ watch.

They include, Rum and Redbull by Beenie Man and Future Fambo, Khago’s Nah Sell Out and more. Hopefully Popcaan international success will bring international record labels to invest in Jamaica more. Jamaica is the future! Hear me on this!
