Popcaan has confirmed that his new album is almost ready.
The Unruly Boss has been quietly working on the follow-up to his 2014 album Where We Come From. The deejay confirmed on Instagram yesterday that his next body of work is coming soon. “Album getting closer and closer .. #unruly,” he wrote. There aren’t a lot of details available about the project and the deejay’s camp wasn’t forthcoming when DancehallHipHop reached out for more details. Sources only told us that it is coming sometime this year, possibly by summer.
Popcaan’s debut album Where We Come From was released on June 10, 2014, and all signs are pointing to another June release for the “Everything Nice” deejay. His last album spawned a number of hits including “Love Yuh Bad,” “Addicted,” “Hold On,” “Everything Nice,” and the title track. We’re told that he has been working on the new album over the past year which explains his reluctance to release new music.
Aside from locking down in the studio to work on his new project, Popcaan is currently sharpening his acting chops after landing a key role in the upcoming Netflix film “The Intent 2.” He will play a villain in the film along with famed Jamaican actor Louie ‘Ox’ Rankin. “Big dreams wey me have thank god me still living it,” Poppy wrote while showcasing a clip from the movie set.
Kendrick Lamar and The Weeknd are joining forces for the upcoming Black Panther: The Album.
The TDE rapper and Tog Dawg are executive producing the project and now we are learning that The Weeknd will be making some contributions. The movie itself is gearing up to be one of the biggest, if not the biggest premiere this year with pre-sale tickets already sold out. Kendrick Lamar is hoping that the hype around the moving will fuel interest in the soundtrack and already it’s showing signs that it will.
There are a few singles off the project that has already been released including a cut that will be featured on Jay Rock’s upcoming album. Complex reported that Kendrick Lamar and The Weeknd are putting together a collaboration for the soundtrack. There is no word yet on when the single or the album will arrive but definitely look out for it sooner than later.
K-Dot and The Weeknd have previously collaborated on the Canadian singer’s last album Starboy on the single “Sidewalks.” That track was a huge hit among fans of two of the biggest music stars in the world. The R&B singer posted a Black Panther artwork on his Instagram earlier this week, a clear sign that he has something coming on the project.
Aside from curating the Black Panther soundtrack, Kendrick is getting ready to go on tour with his labelmate SZA. Top Dawg Entertainment recently announced the “Top Dawg Entertainment Championship Tour” with the rapper and the singer as co-headliners. Lance Skiiwalker, Isaiah Rashad, ScHoolboy Q, Jay Rock, SiR, and Ab-Soul are also on the lineup. The label will be announcing the tour dates soon but it’s looking like another blockbuster affair for K-Dot and the TDE camp who have been having an impressive run over the past few years.
Tommy Lee Sparta teams up with singer Preedy for a new track “Freaky Girl.”
The Afrobeats/soca club banger was produced by Jonny Blaze and DJ Sultan. The track features the Spartan deejay singing about taming his lady. “Gal your body build for the work, just gwaan bubble up then, I want you drop to your knees and bruk out for me yeah, I’ve watching the things you do, let me know if I could conquer you,” Tommy Lee sings.
Tommy Lee Sparta is readying his debut album for a March or April release, but in the meantime you can get his New Creator EP in stores now. The project debut in the top ten on Billboard Reggae chart last week. Earlier this month, Lee teamed up with Masicka for a gangsta dancehall anthem “Real Link” marking the first time those two deejays are working together.
Wiz Khalifa drop the visuals for “Letterman” a cut off his new mixtape Laugh Now, Fly Later.
The video reminds of that time Wiz Khalifa and Snoop Dogg released their movie Mac & Devin Go To High School. In the Ethan Lader-directed movie, Wiz goes back to high school where he is a star player surrounding by some smoking hot cheerleaders. One of the banging females is played by his real life girlfriend Izabela Guedes.
Khalifa plays football for the Doobies so you can bet there is smoke everywhere which is similar to a lot of his videos. Throughout the video, he maintains the weed theme including ads that are shown in the stand. The video arrives just in time for Super Bowl. Mister Cap released his Laugh Now, Fly Later mixtape last year to appease his fans while he works on his upcoming album Khalifa Kush.
Watch Wiz Khalifa new video “Letterman” below.
JAY-Z will not be performing at this weekend’s 2018 Grammy Awards despite recent reports suggesting that he will.
Hov is going into the Grammys with the most nominations this year and everything assumed that he would be taking the stage possibly with Beyonce to perform “Family Feud” or even “4:44.” JAY-Z made a grand return to the music scene last year with his blockbuster album 4:44. That project is one of the most respected albums last year and will go down in history as one of the rap legend’s best body of work.
In the fall last year, JAY-Z went on tour to promote the album and that tour turned out to be his highest grossing solo tour ever. So it’s safe to say that he has been breaking new boundaries. Last week there was some reporting floating around online claiming that Hov will be performing at the Grammy’s, but now Hits Daily Double is countering those chatters with new reports that he has no plans to take the stage.
The Grammy’s has already announced an all-star lineup including acts like Bruno Mars, Rihanna, DJ Khaled, Kendrick Lamar, SZA, Childish Gambino and more. The last time JAY-Z performed at the Grammy’s was back in 2014 when he took the stage with Beyonce to perform “Drunk In Love: from her self-titled album. This year a performance on the big stage would be like icing on the cake for Jay’s fans given the success of his 4:44 album.
Bruno Mars and Cardi B will be performing their new hit “Finesse” while DJ Khaled and Rihanna will be performing their monster hit “Wild Thoughts. The Grammy Awards will be broadcast live on CBS from Madison Square Gardens in New York on Sunday night. Stay tuned to DancehallHipHop for more reporting on the Grammy’s, particularly the Best Reggae Album category. It will be interesting to see who win.
