Popcaan announces his long awaited sophomore album, Forever, due this summer, with the release of the first single “Body So Good”.
In the time since his debut album, Where We Come From, and his early days as Vybz Kartel’s protege, Popcaan has risen to become the Caribbean’s most vital contemporary voice.
Revered and approached by artists in all genres the world over, Popcaan has found a fan and supporter in Drake, been sampled by Kanye, provided anthemic features for Jamie XX, The Gorillaz and Davido all while he continues to dominate his home turf of dancehall. Now a global star, his new album Forever is set to further cement him as an inimitable force and an icon of his generation.
“Body So Good” is a leaf out of Forever’s book, a glimpse of the craft to come. Popcaan’s signature infectious songwriting and unique tone sits afloat an effortlessly breezy dancehall riddim, with shimmering guitars and a throwback ragga post-chorus.
With “Body So Good,” Popcaan weaves together several concurrent musical threads; finding the sweet spot where pop meets its afro counterpart and dancehall future meets dancehall past. “Body So Good” is a sublime summer anthem from the artist who has the world in his hands.
