Jamaican dancehall singjay Popcaan, also known as The Unruly Boss, ended the year 2023 on a high note by surprising fans with a delightful Christmas gift – his album Best Mood. This marks his second album release of the year, following the successful Great Is He set. With a total of 15 tracks, this album is sure to please Popcaan’s loyal fan base. While a few of the tracks have been previously released, it is certain that more singles will be unveiled in the coming year to support this album. Collaborations with artists like Fivio Foreign, Vory, Vybz Kartel, Shane O, and Chronic Law elevate the album, while production work from Dre Skull (Freaky Gyal), Red Boom, Anju Blaxx (Best Mood) Unruly Entertainment, Attomatic Records, Mini E5 (My Honey, This Week), Fanatx (Work, Set It), and Travis Ynad (Tequila Shots Remix), add an undeniable flair. Although this is an independently released Unruly Entertainment project, Popcaan is still signed to Drake’s OVO Sound and Warner Music and will be dropping a new album in the summer of 2024.

In terms of its musicality, this latest album surpasses its predecessor with a wider range of riddims and an overall improvement in quality. While Great Is He sometimes fell short due to riddims often being too repetitive, or just plain mediocre, Best Mood delivers a more irresistible sonic experience for its listeners. As anticipated by fans of the genre, the album’s lyrics predominantly focus on sexually explicit content, known as slackness in Jamaica. Kicking off the album is the solid track Heavy, which immediately establishes the mood for what lies ahead. After having delivered the decent This Week, Popcaan then gets things going in a very nice way with the catchy club banger Always Welcomed. The next seven tracks are entertaining offerings with Freaky Gyal and the title track Best Mood standing up as the peak. The infectious Work, Set It with its hypnotic groove keeps the vibes high. You can’t listen to this one without moving something, a real dancefloor filler. Although Tequila Shots features guests like Vybz Kartel and Chronic Law, it’s not a track to causes much excitement. The last track, Life Is Real, drops thoughtful lyrics that resonate with authenticity and emotion.

Overall, Popcaan has delivered a compelling body of work that displays his unparalleled talent and artistry.
