Popcaan is already benefiting from his Drake affiliation.
The Dancehall entertainer’s sophomore album ‘Forever’ went back to securing then number one spot on the Apple Music Reggae Albums chart last week, just days after Drake announced that Popcaan will officially be signed to his OVO label next year.
Popcaan’s latest music videos “Dun Rich” featuring Nigerian superstar Davido and “Wine For Me” are also number 1 and 2 respectively on the videos chart, while “Silence” is number 4 on the songs chart.
Last weekend while performing at the inaugural Unruly Fest, Drake revealed that Popcaan will officially become the newest member of his OVO entertainment camp in the new year.
“This is something we’ve been working on for a very long time, and I just wanna let everyone know that finally, officially 2019, Popcaan a sign to OVO label,” the Canadian rapper told the massive crowd at Lyssons Beach, St Thomas.
OVO Sound is a Toronto-based Canadian record label founded Drake, Oliver El-Khatib, and long-time producer Noah “40” Shebib in 2012. It operates as a subsidiary of, and is distributed through, Warner Music Group’s Warner Bros.
The label has acts including Drake, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Majid Jordan, OB O’Brien, Roy Woods, and dvsn, as well as in-house producers 40, Boi-1da, T-Minus, Mike Zombie, Nineteen85 and Future the Prince.
