Jamaican dancehall star Popcaan is steadily picking up buzz. He had a bit of a hiccup a couple weeks ago when he was arrested for an onstage fight, but it seems like he’s getting back into the swing of things. He hasn’t announced a full-length offering to solidify his crossover to the States, but he’s had a great streak of one-offs and some big features like “VVIP,” “Ova Dweet,” Drake’s “Controlla,” and Jamie xx’s “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times).” Popcaan is unabashedly clear about his love of two things: women and weed. Take a guess at which one “High All Day” is about.
“High All Day” is a simple, slow simmering ganja anthem about smoking weed all day and night. The visual accompaniment is more of the same. Popcaan and friends partake in various tree activities like breaking down some sticky icky, stuffing joints and blunts the size of swollen fingers, and singing into weed nuggets on skewers like a microphone. Man, that island life is looking good on a Monday. Watch.
