In less than two weeks, dancehall stars Beenie Man, Bounty Killer and Popcaan will invade Barbados for one of the island’s biggest showcases since the start of the year.
The event, dubbed IMAGINE Weekend, is a three-day festival, which gets understand from November 25-27, and sees the Jamaicans headlining alongside Trinidadian soca icon Machel Montano.
Among the main attractions are five huge parties, including a pair of Beach and Bacchanal jamborees. On Friday, November 25, Beenie Man and Bounty Killer will take centerstage at Iconic, while Popcaan and Machel will seize the reins at IMAGINE Live on Sunday, the 27th.
The festivities form part of Barbados’ independence weekend celebrations.
Back on local soil, fans of Popcaan continue to wait with bated breath for the release of his latest album, tentatively titled “Great Is He”. Last month the Unruly Boss indicated that the album had been completed and asked fans when it should be released. He tweeted,
“Album ready now enuh!!! Bomboclaat! #DemDead #1Unrulystate“.
Further gaslighting the situation, the deejay asked, “When unu say drop it this month??”
The post was welcomed with a flurry of comments from fans expressing their jubilation for the announcement.
“Great Is He” comes almost eight years after his debut album “Where We Come From“, which peaked at No.2 on the Billboard Reggae Albums Chart. His sophomore effort, “Forever”, released in July 2018, shared a similar fate regarding its placement on the abovementioned chart but also debuted at No.171 on the Billboard 200 chart.
