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
is Nice.

Popcaan's debut album, Where We Come From, has sold 1,837 copies since its release eight weeks ago.
