Loving 'Popcaan's breakfast in Britain
POPCAAN has scored his first British pop hit with Kisses for Breakfast, a song he did with singer Melissa Steel.
The song debuted at number 10 on the UK national chart last week.
Kisses for Breakfast is the first single for Steel, a 20-year-old from Bradford, England. The song was co-produced by British producer Wundah and Richie Flores.
The latter is a Cayman native residing in the UK, who is a founding member of the Black Chiney sound system. Flores is also manager of Jamaican-born, UK-based deejay Stylo G.
The video for Kisses for Breakfast was filmed at Hellshire Beach in Portmore, St. Catherine, earlier this year.
"The song has a summer, island feel to it, which is pretty much why we envisioned Jamaica as the perfect place to shoot the video," Steel said in a release from her label Atlantic Records.
She is currently working on her first album which has songs directed by several producers including Jamaican Trevor 'Baby G' James.
Popcaan, a protege of Vybz Kartel, came to prominence through the smash hit Clarks, a collaboration with Kartel and Vanessa Bling (aka Gaza Slim).
He followed up with songs like Dream, Only Man She Want (which reached number 89 on the Billboard R&B/Hip Hop Singles chart in 2012), Ravin, Unruly Rave and his latest, Everything
Popcaan's debut album, Where We Come From, has sold 1,837 copies since its release eight weeks ago.
