Drake gave dancehall fans an early holiday gift. During a Sunday performance at Unruly Fest, Graham announced that Popcaan was officially a member of his label, OVO Sound.
"This is something we've worked on for a very long time," Drake said. "I just wanna let everybody know, finally. Officially, 2019 Popcaan is signed to OVO."
Though dancehall artists rarely get this kind of mainstream looks in the States, it's not a surprising signing. For one, Popcaan makes great music. And over the last three years, he's had an outsized influence on Drake's music - he's featured on the outro of 2015's "Know Yourself," appeared on the leaked version of 2016's "Controlla," interpolated on "Too Good" and various parts of his slang and vocal delivery made it onto More Life.
During a 2015 interview on 96.1WEFM, Popcaan explained his relationship with OVO and how Drake found out about his music.
FROM MY FAMILY TO YOURS MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL AND TO ALL A HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR.... 2019 WILL BE A GREAT ONE
