Popcaan Debuts New Version of Drake’s “One Dance” at Culture Clash 2016
Culture Clash 2016 was on and popping yesterday (June 17) in London, England. 02 Arena was lit with a sound clash battle of performances between Wiz Khlifa 's Taylor Gang, Eskimo Dance, UKG Allstars and Mixpak lead by Dancehall artist Popcaan.
Everybody was turning up until Pop and his crew shut ish down by debuting a new version of Drake's smash hit "One Dance." The alternate version featured new lyrics laid by Drizzy specifically for the "Controlla" collaborator. The crowd of 300,000 plus went wild and the Caribbean artist even jabbed Wiz with a "Fuck Wiz Khalifa" over the joy of besting the Pittsburgh rapper with his exclusive gem.
Caan and Drizzy have a good relationship. He appeared on the If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late track “Know Yourself.” He was also featured on an early version of the track "Controlla" which didn't make the final cut for Views.
Pop has even stood up for Aubrey when other artists were coming at his neck. Mr. Vegas took exception to Drake using reggae artist without credit on Views to which Popcaan responded with a video warning Vegas to lay off the Canadian super star.
“Don’t try and violate my brother, now,” Pop said into the camera, “You don’t know anything about Unruly or OVO.” He added, “This is the truth. Leaved the youth alone.”
It's probably safe to assume Drake and Popcaan have some more collabs waiting in the wing.
