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.

Popcaan’s “Silence” video is out tomorrow at 11 am NY/JA time! The visual for “Silence” follows a monumental 2018 for Popcaan, as he took his sound around the world with the release his highly-anticipated sophomore album Forever, culminating in a historic sold-out performance in London at Wembley Arena. Later that month, he returned home for his own Unruly Festival in St. Thomas and released the “Dun Rich” video with Davido. The new video serves as the first offering from Popcaan in 2019, a documentary-style portrait of life in his inner circle. Shot at intimate locations, from his childhood home, to his grandmother’s church, to his riverside hangout, it’s an insight into one of the defining voices of Jamaica today.

Today, Popcaan is back to share a new video. “Wine For Me” arrives off of his long-awaited sophomore album Forever, released this summer. The visual is directed by Willo Perron – a frequent Drake, Rihanna & Kanye collaborator and Imogene Strauss for WP&A – and sees Popcaan taking main stage in a colorful, enthralling world, letting his charisma shine through.
Perron had this to say about the video, “Mixpak approached us to do this video and being huge Popcaan fans we of course said yes and chose an extremely ambitious concept – a one shot video with projection mapping, camera movements, choreographed dance and a moving set, all without VFX.”
The video arrives ahead of Popcaan embarking on a UK arena tour in December, where he’ll play three shows across the UK, including a stop at London’s iconic Wembley SSE Arena.

This Saturday we’re hosting a special pop-up shop at the Fool’s Gold store in Brooklyn!
