Song of the Day: Popcaan “Everything Nice”

Popcaan-cover-art-final1-650x650

Popcaan, who’s been dominating the Jamaican dancehalls for the past few years,┬ájust released his fantastic debut album on Mixpak records, Where We Come From. In some ways, he’s an unlikely dancehall hero in Jamaica — he doesn’t have the badman braggadocio most of the biggest recent Jamaican stars have embraced. He’s a likable, slight dude that just seems like a good guy. Someone you’d want to hang out with.

“Everything is Nice,” the lead single, has become something of a ghetto anthem in Kingston. The feel-good ballad-esque tune touches on struggles and triumphs of everyday Jamaican life. A working man’s anthem.
