Popcaan snagged a collaboration with Billboard producer Jah
Snowcone and new artist Ivy Layne on a single titled “One You Love”
and the music video is now out.
The track has been doing well locally and internationally since making
its debut last month. The original single was just Ivy Layne alone and
was released in April, but Snowcone wanted a dancehall artist on the
track and that artist turned out to be Popcaan.
“We felt that Popcaan would be the best artiste for Ivy Layne to
collaborate with on One You Love,” Jah Snowcone said. The music
video was shot earlier this month in Portland, Jamaica. The cut
features Popcaan and Layne linking up in the club after she took a dip
in the Caribbean sea. You can see the breathtaking view of the
Portland hills in the clip.
Jah Snowcone is a legendary dancehall producer who earned a
Billboard Music Award in 2005 for his work on Sean Paul’s chart
topping single “Temperature” off his album The Trinity. He went on to
receive an American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers
(ASCAP) Award. Snowcone also produced hit songs for dancehall
legend Bounty Killer, Spragga Benz, Capleton, Elephant Man and
Snowcone launched a new label Cape Republic Records with Haitian
supermodel Tyrone Edmund where they will focus on branding and
artist development. Ivy Layne is one of the first artists that the label
sign and the duo have been pushing her career on the international
market. Cape Republic Records will be the label to show the world
how talented Caribbean producers actually are,” Snowcone added.
The legendary producer is focusing on Jamaican influence music and
is looking to take big Jamaican music projects worldwide much like
he did while working with Sean Paul over a decade ago. Toda SP is
one of the biggest dancehall stars on the planet.
