Today we’re sharing the official video for Firm and Strong. “Firm & Strong” arrives off of Popcaan’s widely-acclaimed sophomore album Forever, which saw him take his sound around the world and culminated with a historic sold-out performance in London at Wembley Arena and his own Unruly Festival in St. Thomas. The black-and-white video is directed by Nabil and follows Popcaan on an introspective journey through Jamaica as he reflects on the trials and tribulations of his youth, and how far he’s come as one of the country’s generational voices in music.
We’re so excited to share a new single from Afro B, Vybz Kartel, and Dre Skull, entitled “Shape Nice”.
Bringing together the sounds & vocal styles of London, New York, Jamaica and Africa, the song is an encapsulation of the ever-present dialogue between afro-pop & dancehall.
Afro B is one of London’s rising stars, with his hit song “Drogba (Joanna)”, which took over London in 2018 and is now on playlist rotation on NY radio. Meanwhile, Vybz Kartel continues to dominate dancehall, with an impressive career spanning decades and more hit songs than you can count. They are united by Dre Skull, who gives them a minimal Afropop beat sure to move your body this summer.
We’ve also repressed Vybz Kartel’s classic Kingston Story, produced by Dre Skull, on deluxe gatefold vinyl. Upon its release in 2011, Kingston Story was hailed as Kartel’s strongest full album to date, and spawned classics like “Yuh Love” and “Half on a Baby“.
