Popcaan releases “Hold On” new hit single
Popcaan, whose real name is Andre Jay Sutherland, is the current leader in the neverending battle for supremacy among Jamaican deejays.
Sutherland has a super-melodic flow (he’s what is sometimes referred to as a “singjay”) and nimble sense of melody, so Hershey’s beats offer a lot of opportunities to exploit both talents, even as they stick to chord progressions that don’t stray from dancehall’s conventions.
Dre Skull’s production skills also make a good platform for Sutherland’s expressive delivery, converting the plaintive strings and funereal tolling bells of “Hold On” into triumphant uplift
