The pop superstar and teh Unruly Boss were both in Barbados last weekend. Rihanna was on her home soil where she was honored with a street named after her, while Popcaan was there to perform at a concert. RiRi and her BFF Melissa Ford link up with Poppy for a candid photo that has since been making the rounds on social media.
Sources close to the “Work” singer told Dancehall HipHop that the two spoke about working together but so far nothing concrete. “They did spoke about collaborating but nothing concrete yet just the initiation,” sources said. “These are two great Caribbean artists who are fans of each other’s music so naturally they would want to work together. Only time will tell if we will get a song featuring Rihanna and Popcaan.”
Both artists are currently working on new albums so there isn’t a better time for them to drop a collaboration on one of the upcoming projects. Popcaan is close friends with Rihanna’s ex-boyfriend Drake, so if this collab happens lets so how Drizzy will react to it. Last year RiRi had one of the biggest songs on the planet, her dancehall banger “Work” featuring Drake. The video for that single received almost a billion views on YouTube.
Chronixx drop a dance video for “Likes” featuring dance group Ravers Clavers.
This is the second music video to be released for the popular single this year. The track is featured on the reggae singer’s chart topping album Chronology, for which he earned himself a Grammy and MOBO nomination for. The cut features members of the popular dance group headed by Ding Dong showing off some new dance moves that they debut this year. Ding Dong didn’t make a cameo but Beenie Man daughter Desha Ravers showed off some impressive moves.
Chronixx says he released the new video to pay homage to dancing, something he grew up on. 2017 has been a big year for the reggae star who is at the forefront of the reggae revival movement. Last weekend he performed in front of a sold out crowd at Mas Camp in Kingston as he brought his Chronology World Tour to his home soil.
Watch Chronixx “Likes” video below.
Both Junior Gong and the Chronology singer are nominated for Best Reggae Album at the 60th Grammy Awards set to take place next month. The two reggae stars released two dope albums this year with Gong Dropping Stony Hill in July and Chronixx dropping his album that same month. Both albums were well received by reggae fans globally.
Gong says that he is deeply honored to have gotten a Grammy nomination for his latest project and also praises Chronixx for his latest body of work. “Some good albums are in the category this year,” Damian Marley said. “Chronixx put out a really nice album, which I listen to as a fan. I like that album a whole heap. Morgan Heritage, who are close family friends of mine, they have a good album out too, likewise J Boog. I am not so familiar with Common Kings, but everybody else I kinda know them music and we are all friends.”
Morgan Heritage, Common Kings, and J Boog, are the other three artists who received a Grammy nomination in the reggae category. Damian Marley and Chronixx were also nominated in the reggae category for the 2017 MOBO Awards which Gong won last week.
It’s been two years since dancehall star J Capri‘s death.
Her family has been working behind the scenes over the past year and a half to setup a foundation in her honor. J Capri, whose real name is Jordan Phillips, died in the hospital on December 4th, 2015 from injuries she received from a car crash. Her family has since been trying to keep her memory alive through various initiatives including a charitable foundation setup with the aim to sponsor students at the Edna Manley College of the Visual and Performing Arts, the same school where Capri studied music.
The foundation also awards students at the primary school level who performed exceptional in the Grade Six Achievement Test examination by paying their tuition to continue their education. The foundation was originally slated to be launched on the anniversary of her death this month, but her mother, Oradell ‘Debbie’ Carwin, confirmed that the launch date has been pushed back to January due to some minor setbacks.
“We are in the process of setting up the website and everything for the official launch in December 2017,” Carwin said. “If a student wants to apply for a scholarship they can sign up via the website and give details on what they want to pursue and explain why deserve the scholarship.”
J Capri’s death has still been difficult to deal with by her family and fans. She had a bright future and was seen as one of the most talented young artists in dancehall prior to her death.
