Popcaan Heads To Colombia, Working On Debut Album

Former Portmore Empire deejay Popcaan appears to be still popping despite remarks from veteran entertainer Ninja Man that he has been replaced by Tommy Lee Sparta.  Back from a recent tour of Europe and a Caribbean stint, the artistes says he has a full roster for the rest of the year.

Reflecting on the tour the 'Party Shot' singer intimates he's still in some-what of a daze.
“The response from countries outside of Jamaica has been awesome, when I go to the Caribbean, the fans there know every song word-for-word. They expect to hear all the songs in my catalogue and they don’t want one verse either, they demand the entire song… and I am only too happy to sing it all for them,” declares the MOBO nominated artiste.

Sold-out tours, hot new singles and intense adoration from his fans are the elements that have kept this artiste whose given name is Andre Sutherland a contender in the fiery furnace of Dancehall. Not only has he come to terms with a lot of the drama surrounding his meteoric rise but is intent on making it work for him.

Booked solid for the upcoming festive season, which includes Sting and a concert in Colombia (South America) where he will open for Grammy Award winner Shaggy, Popcaan is also in studio working assiduously on his debut album.

“We have assembled a team of producers and I am really excited about this album project. It’s my first, so it will definitely be something to talk about, stated the man who the UK-based BB Radio 1Xtra chose as one of their 'Hot 20 for 2012’.

Among his more recent offerings are 'Food Haffi Run', which peaked at number one in the United Kingdom and 'So We Do It', for which he is in the process of shooting the video.
