Popcaan returns from canada tour


Fresh from a successful Canadian tour in June, Popcaan performed to full- house venues in Toronto, Montreal, Calgary and Vancouver.


The popular artiste has remained at the forefront of the dancehall scene, climbing charts to performing to sold-out shows worldwide.

Popcaan raised the bar as he performed to sold-out concerts in Europe on his European Summer 2013 Tour, playing major festivals in Germany, France, Switzerland and Holland over the last two weeks.
Of significance, it was his first time performing with a band at festivals such as Afro Latino in Belgium and Summerjam in Germany.

After rocking a 30,000-strong crowd at Summerjam, Popcaan said: "It was an amazing experience, it's great to see how the people accept the music. Summerjam is a special vibe and a every energetic crowd".

Popcaan will return to Jamaica just in time for the highly anticipated Reggae Sumfest, one of the biggest shows for music in Jamaica, at the end of July.

After a critically acclaimed performance last year, the deejay looks forward to delivering on Dancehall Night yet again.

In between the tour dates and appearances, the dancehall artiste is still working assiduously in the studio. Last summer, the Unruly Boss dominated with the release of his award-winning hit single,  

When We Party.
The release,for Hapilos Digital Production, seems out to do the same with heavy rotation on the radio, in clubs and the streets. He commemorated the summer by releasing the video for the track on the first day of the season.

The video shoot for another track, the Jam 2 Records-produced single, Wine Like That, was recently completed, which fans can also look out for in July.
With Popcaan's latest collaboration, First Time, with Megan James, from the group Purity Ring, featured in the Puma Dance Dictionary and gaining traction worldwide, Popcaan will be adding a number of international collaborations to his growing catalogue this year, as well. Songs featuring both UK and US-based artistes can be expected.

His worldwide hit, The System, is in rotation on MTV Jams and VH1 Soul, and the song remains one of his most popular.

Of this song, Popcaan said: "It's a song that the people just love it, a sing along. everywhere when I perform it, and it has nearly two million views on YouTube on my page alone, so maybe five million all over the Internet. So with MTV rotation, it can only keep growing."
Popcaan's full-length album is already under way, with finishing touches being done. The album will be crafted by the ingenious Dre Skull of MixPak Records, along with well-known Jamaican producers. The first single from the album will be released September 10.
