Drake Popcaan VIEWS

Popcaan Did Not Make Drake’s Highly Anticipated ‘VIEWS’ Album

Although widely speculated that he would have, Popcaan did not make Drake’s highly anticipated fourth studio album, VIEWS. The collaboration on which he was featured entitled, “Controlla” was leaked online ahead of the official release of the 20 songs tracklist and might have been the reason why the artiste was bumped off. 

Although Dancehall and the Jamaican culture are prominent on many of the albums released by a major Hip-Hop/POP artiste over the last year, no Jamaican hardcore Dancehall artiste has been able to penetrate the US market in like manner as Sean Paul. Needless to say the artistes are not making the type of music that appeals to the market because we see elements of what both artistes and dancers create, copied and used in its original state on popular tracks and music videos. Dancehall slangs, punchlines, rhythms, style, choreography, and culture has become a phenomenon among Pop, RnB and Hip-Hop music, but Dancehall artistes and dancers are not. 

Popcaan and Drake seems to be fans of each other. Drizzy have even been heard repeating familiar ‘Popcaan slangs. But while Popcaan #VIEWS @Drake on his twitter page some fans of the Dancehall artiste were not pleased and went in on Drizzy on social media for excluding Pappy off the the album. At this time it’s still not known why Popcaan was left off the album or if, he was even considered in the first place.
