Dancehall star Popcaan, who has been with Drake’s OVO Sound since late 2018, says he’ll become a free agent in the near future.
Without exposing too much, the St. Thomas native told Crack Magazine, in a spread published today (March 6), said: “I have so much music. The label can be weird sometimes. I love the label, but I don’t like them…But I’ll be independent soon.”
While no one is sure what timeframe “soon” is, the Level Up deejay also promises another new album this year, even though his latest, Great Is He (GIHE), is still cementing in the minds of Unruly fans across the world.
The album — which was his third under OVO Sound — was released on January 27.
Popcaan, whose real name is Andrae Sutherland, said he’s been urging his colleagues to move away from Dancehall’s ‘sporadic’ singles-based riddim culture to a more cohesive presentation like his own.
