Popcaan Drops His Dancehall Banger ‘Promise’ On The NBA 2k21 Soundtrack

Popcaan joins a star-studded lineup for the NBA 2K21 Next Gen soundtrack.

Few artists are doing it like Popcaan this year. From the successful release of his FIXTAPE album, which debuted at number 94 on the Billboard 200 chart and has already garnered more than five million streams on Spotify, comes news that his music will be featured on one of the most popular games in the US, NBA 2k21’s in-game soundtrack.

It’s a big push for the Unruly Boss’ music in the US market as Take-Two Interactive’s “NBA 2K21” was credited as the top-earning title in September, selling 1.9 million copies after its launch on September 4.

This installation of the NBA 2k 21 called Next Gen will be launched today, November 10, in the US and on November 19, globally. The song that has been chosen to be featured is “Promise” from his successful 2019 Vanquish mixtape. This installation of the game is expected to do extremely well since it will be featured on Sony’s latest release, the Playstation 5, and the Xbox series X, which has improved graphics and gameplay.

The “Ova Dweet” singer is the only Dancehall deejay to be featured on the official soundtrack of NBA 2K21 Next Gen. HIs music will be featured with some other big artists mostly in the rap game, who are predominantly US-based, including Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Big Sean, Pop Smoke, Post Malone, Lil Baby, and Lil Uzi Vert.

The hugely popular NBA 2K21 is a basketball simulation video game that was developed by Visual Concepts and published by 2K Sports. The franchise is 21-years-old. The NBA 2k’s Instagram page has Popcaan’s name listed as one of the 150 songs chosen for the game. That post has already been liked more than 130,000 times.

Dermot Kennedy – The Killer Was a Coward Lyrics

Play this song

[Verse 1]
See the killer was a coward
Dark deeds in dark towers
So he fled when they came
Blowing brass, carrying chains

[Verse 2]
They want to lock him in the dark
They want to kill what’s in his heart
They left the town to hunt him down
And they left one man to hold it down

[Verse 3]
When they get back he’s in the throne
Looks like the killer’s fucking clone
Says he’s got ideas of his own
But there’s one thing he’d kill to know

[Verse 4]
See, there’s a hero in the crowd
And his heart starts beating loud
Says the killer took his friend
And decides that this is where it ends

[Verse 5]
So that night the king’s walking the tower
His eyes lit up with all the power
But the hero’s ghosting by the guards
And his heart, it’s carrying a charge

[Verse 6]
He stabs him in his cunning heart
The scream tore sea and sky apart
So you want fears? We’ve still got several
Least the killer’s dancing with the devil

[Verse 7]
The hero did it for days
When you don’t know if the moon will even come
And then it lays down
And I’m telling you, man, it’s sweet when it does
And when I think of you I think of spirit defined
I think of all the love that we shared in a very dark time

[Verse 8]
So the hero did it for the summer
For long days with that sun in your hair
For fires and family
For the phrase “Don’t ever leave me”

[Outro]
Sorrow won’t be finding me no more
Sorrow won’t be finding me no more
Sorrow won’t be finding me no more
When you coming home now?
Sorrow won’t be finding me no more
Sorrow won’t be finding me no more
Sorrow won’t be finding me no more
When you coming home now?

[Intro]
Come on need
You gotta get on board

[Verse 1]
Come on new plain
Come on need to get out
I said, come on new plain
Come on, don’t you mess me about

[Pre-Chorus]
You see
I tried and I found no way to get out
I said I tried and I found
There’s no comin’ back for me

[Chorus]
(No man’s land)
Know you gotta get away
(No man’s land)
Fight and live another day

[Verse 2]
Caught in a highway
‘Cause you know I need to get out
Head out on the wild plain
Come on don’t you fool me around

[Pre-Chorus]
You know I sought and I found
It’s hard to get out
I said, I fought and I found
There’s no comin’ back for me

[Chorus]
(No man’s land)
Know you gotta get away
(No man’s land)
Fight and live another day

Live to fight on another day
(No man’s land)
In thе middle of the fray
(No man’s land)
Fly, fly, fly away
(No man’s land)
(No man’s land)
Know you gotta get away
(No man’s land)
Livе to fight another – fight another day
(No man’s land)

[Chorus: Dutchavelli]
You don’t need to ask where I’m from (No)

Man run off in O with the pack, burnt his skin, told him to keep it

‘Scuse me darling, your boyfriend’s a creep
Let me slide ’round there like Michael and beat it
Thirty-two racks, we need thirty-six Z’s (Aha)
But my plug in the ‘Dam is the cheapest (Facts)
Browning with the largest back
That’s nine outta ten cah her face look decent
Told her if she put me on Insta’ Livе
Can’t buy you Victoria’s Secret
Told little bro not to bе like me
You don’t know what it’s like tryna feed these demons
On the opp block tryna get a man down
But I’ll tell you what I did last weekend (No)
And man seen man get killed, but it’s so hard to sleep when the memory’s recent (Facts)

Let’s go on a drive through the East End (Skrrt)

[Chorus: Dutchavelli]
You don’t need to ask where I’m from (No)

Man run off in O with the pack, burnt his skin, told him to keep it

Man run off in O with the pack, burnt his skin, told him to keep it

AC/DC – Systems Down Lyrics

Play this song

[Verse 1]
Unchained
Feel it burnin’ up the heat
See the flames
Scorchin’ everything it seeks

[Pre-Chorus]
We got a chain reaction
It needs immediate action
This furnace is about to blast

[Chorus]
Systems are going down
Systems are burning out
And they all fall down

[Verse 2]
Untamed
Like a tiger searchin’ feat
Ain’t no game
As the earth shakes beneath your feet

[Pre-Chorus]
We got a plan of action
Rising heat to the maximum
Who knows if this place implodes

[Chorus]
Systems are going down
We got a chain reaction
Systems are burning out
And they all fall down

[Solo]

[Pre-Chorus]
This furnace is about to blast

[Chorus]
Systems are going down
Systems are burning out
And they all fall down
(Systems down)
Overload
(Systems down)
See the flames flow
(Systems down)
Goin down
(Systems down)
Watch it burn to the ground

Lecrae – This Is My Time Lyrics

[Verse 1]
(Ooh-ooh) Here we go
Found my position, let’s hit the road (Ooh-ooh)
Came alone, now my people here wit’ me, I’m in my zone (Ooh-ooh)
Been around the block a time or two
I tell you where to go, I tell you how to move
I got longitude and latitudes
Keep it movin’, that’s my attitude
Lookin’ back, I know they prolly doubt me
Now the city on my back, I wear it proudly
I’m a hero in the makin’
If I’m dreamin’, you can’t make it

[Pre-Chorus]
I think I’m destined to win it
They playin’ games, I ain’t in it (Yeah, yeah)
I took the message of sinnin’
Feel like I was born for this minute

This is my timе
I’m seizin’ the moment ‘causе I gotta go ‘fore the time’s gone (Gone, gone)
Ain’t scared of the dark ’cause I’m bringin’ the light where the night’s long

See it comin’, I don’t need a sign (Yeah, yeah)
This the moment, I’ma make it mine (Yeah, yeah)

My time, my time now (This is my time, this is my time, yeah)
My time, my time (This is my time)

[Verse 2]
Shoulda known from the beginnin’
I was put on Earth to win it (Ooh-ooh)
Wanna tango where we livin’?
Anyway you try to spin it (Yeah, yeah)
Heroes lookin’ at me in the mirror
Couldn’t tell but now I see it clear
Got the confidence to make the moments matter even after all the interference

[Pre-Chorus]
I think I’m destined to win it
They playin’ games, I ain’t in it (Yeah, yeah)
I took the message of sinnin’
Feel like I was born for this minute

[Chorus]
This is my time
I’m seizin’ the moment ’cause I gotta go ‘fore the time’s gone (Gone, gone)
Ain’t scared of the dark ’cause I’m bringin’ the light where the night’s long
I shine on
See it comin’, I don’t need a sign (Yeah, yeah)
This the moment, I’ma make it mine (Yeah, yeah)

My time, my time now (This is my time, this is my time, yeah)

Phil Collins – TV Story Lyrics

Play this song

Simpson family hardly spoke
With seven kids, it wasn’t a joke
Just meeting at night on the sofa
All trying to watch TV

Tucked away in North West Three
Car in the garage, but dad lost the key
So no-one leaves, not even for school
Place is a mess, but the game shows are cool

Someday, they’ll get a life
Put away the remote control
Smell the roses ‘fore you get old
Hey you, get a life
Turn it off and throw it away
Wake up and walk away

‘Cause grandma, granddad, remember the days
Before the one-eyed monster came
Nobody listens as they say all this
Cause everybody’s glued

Lunch and dinner in front of the box
Nobody moves, if somebody knocks
Nobody ever hears the phone
Conversation’s a memory

Someday, they’ll get a life
With the remote control in the bin
Wave to the world you’re living in
One day, they’ll get a life
But at the moment, it’s out of their reach
A life of luxury on the beach

One fine day, a challenge was thrown
By a man at the door in an Escort
“All this could be yours” he said with a grin
Your dream, complete with passport

Challenge was to see, if they could change
TV dinners were all that remained
The men from the game show took the set
Could they survive without it?

Well, mum and dad learned to laugh again
Kids went out and made some friends
All because of the empty space
Standing in the corner

Hey now, they’ve got a life
Remote control’s nowhere to be seen
That’s made ’em the dishes clean
Oh yeah, it’s a brand new life
So go put on your dancing shoes
Shout it out and spread the news
Oh yeah, it’s a brand new life
(Get a brand new life!)
It’s out there somewhere
(Don’t just settle for second best!)
Oh yeah, a brand new life
(Call now!)

Just waiting for you someplace somewhere
(All this could be yours and more!)
Oh yeah, it’s a brand new life
(All you have to do is survive for it!)

It’s out there somewhere
(Don’t just sit there now!)
Oh yeah, a brand new life
(Get ’em one, just go get ’em one!)
Just waiting for you someplace somewhere
(Apply now! Follow me…)

Sleeping at Last – Breathe Deep Lyrics

Play this song

Once in a while
I see myself
No longer enchanted by the future or the past
I break the spell

Once in a while
It’s crystal clear
The shadows, the light, even my scars, overnight
They disappear

If every breath is sacred
God, I wanna breathe
Deep enough to feel something
Deep enough to believe

Once in a while
It all sinks in
I try to keep my head above the water, God knows
That I can’t swim

Once in a while
I put up a fight
Write another song and sing it with all of my might
Renegotiate the terms of this terminal life
I’ll put up a fight

If every breath is sacred
God, I wanna breathe
Deep enough to feel something
Deep enough to believe

And every breath is sacred
But I don’t wanna breathe
Deep enough to feel something
Deep enough to believe

Please show me how to breathe deep
Please show me how to breathe deep

If every breath is sacred
God, I wanna breathe
Deep enough to feel something
Deep enough to believe

Phil Collins – Two Hearts [Serious Hits…Live!] Lyrics

Play this song

Well there was no reason to believe
She’d always be there
But if you don’t put faith in what you’re believin’
It’s getting ya nowhere

And it teaches you to never give up
Don’t look down, just look up
‘Cause she’s always there behind you
Just to remind you

Two hearts living in just one mind
You know it, two hearts living in just one mind

Well there was no easy way to
To understand it
‘Cause there’s so much of my life in her
And it’s like I planned it

And it teaches you to never let go
There’s so much love you’ll never know
She can reach you, no matter how far
Wherever you are

Two hearts living in just one mind
Beating together till the end of time
You know it, two hearts living in just one mind
Together forever till the end of time

Well she knows, there’ll always be a special place in my heart for her
She knows, she knows, she knows
Yeah she knows (she knows), no matter how far apart we are, she knows
I’m always right there beside her

We’re two hearts living in just one mind
Beating together until the end of time
You know it, two hearts, but living in, living in just one mind
Together forever till the end of time

You know it, two hearts living in just one mind
Just one mind, just one mind until the end of time
You know it, two hearts, but living in just one mind
Beating together forever till the end of time

Kodaline – Sometimes (Acoustic) Lyrics

Play this song

[Verse 1]
I’m not looking for an answer
I just hope these words will help whoever’s listening
If someone cares to listen in
I’ve been up and down in life sure
Everyday is a chance to fight, forever wrestling
Trying to make amends again

[Pre-Chorus]
But I break down and I lose control
The band don’t care ’cause they had a good show
I won’t cry ’cause I’m lucky I know
A restless heart and a beautiful soul
It really doesn’t matter if I stay or go
It’s hitting me hard but I’m lucky I know

[Chorus]
All of my friends
Don’t understand
Maybe I’m crazy
Maybe I’m blind
Maybe we’ll all get lost sometimes
Sometimes
(Oh, oh, oh, oh)
(Oh, oh, oh, oh)

[Verse 2]
And every night when I’m alone
I put another podcast on
It helps me slip away
Keeps me learning everyday
Reading books on meditation
Fights away the hesitation
Hanging over me
Easing the anxiety

[Pre-Chorus]
But I break down and I lose control
The band don’t care ’cause they had a good show
I won’t cry ’cause I’m lucky, I know
A restless heart and a beautiful soul
It really doesn’t matter if I stay or go
It’s hitting me hard but I’m lucky I know

[Chorus]
All of my friends
Don’t understand
Maybe I’m crazy
Maybe I’m blind
Maybe we’ll all get lost sometimes
Sometimes
(Oh, oh, oh, oh)
(Oh, oh, oh, oh)
(Oh, oh, oh, oh)
Maybe we’ll all get lost sometimes (Oh, oh, oh, oh)

[Outro]
I’m not looking for an answer
I just hope these words will help whoever’s listening
If someone cares to listen in

Paul Kelly – Careless Lyrics

How many cabs in New York City?
how many angels on a pin?
How many notes in a saxophone?
how many tears in a bottle of gin?
How many times did you call my name, knock at the door but you couldn’t get in?

I know I’ve been careless

I’ve been wrapped up in a shell nothing could get through to me
Acted like I didn’t know I had friends or family
I saw worry in their eyes, it didn’t look like fear to me

I know I’ve been careless (I lost my tenderness)
I’ve been careless (I took bad care of this)

Like a mixture in a bottle, like a frozen-over lake

Like a long time painted smile I got so hard I had to crack
You were there, you held the line, you’re the one that brought me back

I know I’ve been careless (I lost my tenderness)
I’ve been careless (I took bad care of this)

How many cabs in New York City?
how many angels on a pin?
How many notes in a saxophone?
how many tears in a bottle of gin?
How many times did you call my name, knock at the door but you couldn’t get in?
How many stars in the milky way?
how many way can you lose a friend?

Desert Sessions – Polly Wants A Crack Rock Lyrics

All dressed up
No where to hold
Kiss of living
On the go

Polly wants a crack rock
Polly’s on the wrong block
Polly wants a crack rock
Polly wants a crack

All f*cked up
Hanging around
Fold that hit
Sue go down

Polly’s on the wrong block
Polly wants a crack rock

Polly’s on the wrong block
Polly wants a crack rock

1, 2, 3, 4

Gotta hit it
Got-got to hit it, hit it

Polly’s on the wrong block
Polly want a crack rock
Polly’s on the wrong block
Polly want a crack rock
Want a crack rock
Want a crack rock

Ariel Pink – Steviepink Lyrics

I was housebreaking some classical Boxcar Willie, and it occurred to me: my wrench had become soggy. Oversaturation of water from the Caribbean. I contacted my barber, and he told me, “It’s just the system.” And THAT’S when I turned pink

“Now, whaddya call this music, Steve?” Ariel Green
“Yeah?” That’s right
“Well, I call it StevePink. Jump in whenever you want. Fill in the blank space, if you would.” I’ll do what I can. Michael Zanna, Michael Zanna, Michael Zanna, Michael Zanna, Michael Zanna, Michael Zanna, Michael Zanna, Michael Zanna, Michael Zanna

“R. Stevie, it’s nice to meetcha” My pleasure
“It’s such a thrill.” You do great shit
“Aw thanks, man, you too.” And I like the way that you do that…
“Dig the time you shift the lip there (?)” Uh huh. “Right.” Uh huh. “Right. Exactly.” Borax. It’s like Borax, exactly!

“My name is Pink, and no one knows me
I’m really big in South Dakota” I knew your grandmother back…

“You tell all your friends about me, and I’ll tell all my friends about you.” Yeah, but, your friends left me
“What?” For YOU!
“Man, that’s low.” IT’S TRUE!

“Now does this guarantee that I get your tapes for free now?” I was thinking about running for Senate

“Now I know that’s not your thing, you can blow yourself a chance now”” I was thinking about you as my running mate, Pink
“Hey, I was supposed to say that.” You’re a little slow
“Uh.” See??
“Uh, yeah.” Ha ha ha
“f*ck this.”

“R. Stevie, you’re very cool.” No question
“Your music rules.” Thank you. You too
“Aw, you’re just fibbing.” No, I’m serious!
“For real?” Yeah!
“Hell, yes.” No question! You’re better than I am!

“…Too much fantasy in there (?)” No, this is reality we’re speaking about

Ariel Pink – Kind Of Kind Lyrics

If I told you that something was wrong and you know
And you ask me what is wrong I don't know
But if something isn't something is nothing?
Well if something isn't something is it nothing?

Now I've written 1,001 of these songs
But don't ask me if I've something to say
Cause if something isn't something is it nothing?
If something isn't something is it nothing?

Don't ask something benign, say something kind of kind

In a story where people will people will lie to each other
Is there really anyone to blame?
Cause if something isn't something is it nothing?
If something isn't something is it nothing?

This life I can't do you, I got to start something
If I say that something ain't me

Cause if something isn't something is it nothing?
If something isn't something is it nothing?

Don't ask something benign, say something kind of kind
Don't ask something benign, ask something kind of kind

If I told you that something was wrong and you know
And you ask me what is wrong I don't know
But if something isn't something is nothing?
Well if something isn't something is it nothing?
Now I've written 1,001 of these songs
But don't ask me if I've something to say
Cause if something isn't something is it nothing?
If something isn't something is it nothing?

Don't ask something benign, say something kind of kind
Don't ask something benign, say something kind of kind

Ariel Pink – R. Stevie’s Brain Lyrics

I’m inside R. Stevie’s brain
And he’s in my brain
I’m inside R. Stevie’s head
And he’s in my head

Sometimes I think that I’m a figment of his imagination
But then I realize that it’s just a symptom of my condition

Lines connected by fantastic fans or insane fanatics
Leave it to Steve to decide

I’m inside R. Stevie’s brain
And he’s in my brain
I’m inside R. Stevie’s head
And now I’m in your head

Just when I think that I’ve transcended all the information
That’s when I realize I’m a victim of over saturation

I’ve learned to love it, but I’ve yet to make it mine
R. Stevie’s price is the game of life reflected out of time

[Distorted commercials]
“[?] man can get a hundred thousand dollars coverage for less than fifteen dollars a month
Also guaranteed ten years
These are the best rates available from the respected insurer that’s covered families since 1907
Protective life insurance company
The call is free, the quote is free, and there’s no obligation

So call for a free quote right over the phone on—
Call [?] protective life insurance

T-E-R-M
Select [?]
When Rob Sherman of Sherman Windows and Texture Building offered up to two thousand square feet of free texture building
With the purchase of ten [?] composite windows
Well, calls start pouring in, so he extended the offer for another month
And the phone kept ringing so, well, now he’s doing it again
One last time, hey, it’s the last—”

Sometimes I think that I’m a figment of his imagination
But then I realize that it’s just a symptom of my condition

Lines connected by fantastic fans or insane fanatics
Leave it to Steve to decide (you’re nuts)

I’m inside R. Stevie’s brain
And he’s in my brain
I’m inside R. Stevie’s head
And he’s in my head

I’m inside R. Stevie’s brain
And he’s in my brain
I’m inside R. Stevie’s head

Ariel Pink – Burned Out Love Lyrics

Pale clouds glitter in the veil of grey skies
Hold me back, the black hole comes
Outside the fauna cries from ashes craving further supply wood
(But anyway it’s almost [?])

Now you know, no you’re never leaving
Nowhere to run but the forest next door
All things aside, all you need is your interests
Hold you forever in your mother’s humbug [?]

Come on back, the forest, it calls on
When all the birds are [?]

Burned out love
Burned out love
Burned out love
Burned out love

Three of hearts, solitary girl
Three of hearts, solitary girl
Three of hearts, solitary girl

You leave the door open when you escape this
You leave your shoes battered in the lake
The light of moon and the sounds that drown you
Push you out as they put you in

Cathy come back, you’re the one

You’re the one who’s there

Burned out love
Burned out love
Burned out love
Burned out love
Burned out love
Burned out love

Now you know, no you’re never leaving
Nowhere to run but the forest next door
All things aside, all you need is your interests
Hold you forever in your mother’s humbug

Come on back, the forest, it calls on
When all the birds are [?]

Burned out love
Burned out love
Burned out love
Burned out love
Burned out love
Burned out love
Burned out love
Burned out love
Burned out love
Burned out love
Burned out love
(Three of hearts, solitary girl)
Burned out love
Burned out love
(Three of hearts, solitary girl)
Burned out love
Burned out love
(Three of hearts)

Ariel Pink – Hold Your Breath And Wait Lyrics

Kissy kissy
I don’t wanna go down to Huntington Beach
Love you, doll
You still love me?
No? What do you mean?
How can you reject a face like this, huh?
Oh, now that’s a face I can’t reject
Ha, alright
Could you hold your breath and wait now?
Well okay, little girl. If that’s what you want
Uh-huh, you’re the best
Okay. I’ll see you tomorrow. Sounds good

When my work is done I will be through
I’ll cease playing that number for you
Yes it’s true, keep playing that number two
Russian roulette, gentlemen place their bets at noon
Strike at noon, playing that number two
You see, I’m tending the garden for you
Hey!
(Tending the garden, tending the garden, tending the garden)
Over and out, up and under, keep tying the noose
Baby blue
See, I’m tending the garden
Tending the garden for you
For you
For you

Cross my heart, hope to die
Holdin’ my breath and wait
Holdin’ my breath and wait
Cross my heart, hope to die
Holdin’ my breath and wait
Holdin’ my breath and wait

When the sun comes up I’m gonna see you too
Y’know I’m tending the garden at noon
The sky is blue, colored with every hue

Peculiar petunia, aloha [?] June
Summer soon (Woo!)
Keep playing that number [?]
Russian roulette, don’t make a baby just yet
There’s no room, no clothes [?]
When the work is done and the will is [?]

Hold your breath and wait and wait a-little crazy one
Hold your breath and wait and wait a-little crazy one
Hold your breath and wait a-wait-a-wait-a-wait
Little crazy one, crazy one
Hold your breath and wait and wait a-little crazy one
Hold your breath and wait and wait a-little crazy one
Hold your breath and wait a-wait-a-wait-a-wait
Little crazy one, crazy one

Dress up the death [?] the middle of May, hey!
I’m calling you from the garden, from a [?]

Summer soon
Keep playing that number, that number

Hold your breath and wait and wait a-little crazy one
Hold your breath and wait and wait a-little crazy one
Hold your breath and wait a-crazy one, crazy one, crazy one

Ariel Pink – Phantasthma Lyrics

Old friend on the phone
He bids you well on your subscriptions
Lesser men, abandon power
Remove the voice that cuts the air
And while the sister brews the tea
You think “I wish she knew the real me.”

Apologize for words
He gave you a turn to hurt her
Let it beat you down again
One final conquest to convey

And with emotions made of clay
For hands cannot proclaim

(Phantasthma, phantasthma, phantasthma)

Sitting in the park, reading the dawn
It tells all your stories
Checkout time, the concrete grass
I knew you were real
Now you’re mine again
And what a fantastic morning
What a fantastic morning

Don McLean – Angry Words Lyrics

I don’t know why I did it, I guess I lost my head
I should have said ‘I love you’ but used angry words instead

Angry words that were so unfair
Angry words, I should have said ‘I care’

It’s easy to apologize, it’s harder to forget
You made the loving easy but I made you so upset

With angry words that were so unfair
Angry words, I should have said ‘I care’

I’ve stood right beside you, I’ve changed in many ways

I stand here ever faithful but I still have my bad days

And angry words can sometimes fly
Angry words where once I use to cry

It’s easy to apologize, it’s harder to forget
You made the loving easy but I made you so upset

With angry words, that were so unfair
Angry words, I should have said ‘I care’

Angry words, that were so unfair
I should have said ‘I care’

Don McLean – My Love Was True Lyrics

Please don't forget me
No matter what the future brings
Please don't forget me
Somewhere the tenor sings and when you hear him
Think of how I sang to you and remember
Please remember, always remember my love was true

My love, I'm so happy that we met
This time I won't be easy to forget
I don't know what will happen
But I bet you will remember
You will remember when you see our boy
You will remember sunny day

Sunlight in his shining hair
When all our love was there
You will remember when you see our girl
You will remember magic night
Starlight in a wintry sky and by the fire just you and I

Please don't forget me
If we should go our separate ways, please don't forget me
Somewhere the guitar plays and when you hear it
Think of how I play for you and remember
Please remember, always remember, my love was true

Popcaan Performs “Bank & God” For Vevo’s Ctrl.At.Home Series

Popcaan will go down in history of one of the greatest performers in dancehall’s history.

Popcaan has been getting much shine over the last few years as something of a savior of the genre on the international front, where the battle royal continues about what many see as Jamaica’s poor musical output. Still, the OVO Sound signee has landed collabs with some pretty stellar acts of late, which makes him deserving of the honor he has been receiving. So far, we have seen him working with Young Thug, French Montana, Jorja Smith, Maroon 5, Davido, Preme, and UK talents suck as Loski.

It’s only fitting that Vevo tapped into his “chilled, raspy-leaning cadence” for their Vevo Ctrl.At.Home. The series is not new to the island vibe, though, since the platform has already been blessed with performances from Lila Ike and Protoje with whom Popcaan recently collaborated.

Popcaan selected “Bank & God” from his recent FIXTAPE project for the one track performance. The video, produced by Micah Bickham, comes in the form of the greyscale shade the Ctrl.At.Home series is now known for. The video filter has a way of evoking an introspective type of vibe, which the Unruly champ capitalizes on while commanding his vocal dominance atop a hilly terrain. The only sources of human interference that lie between the lens are Popcaan himself, the clothes he adorns, and the microphone from which he sings.

“Only trust the bank & God,” he says, but the entertainer has clearly earned the trust of quite a few big wigs yard and abroad, and quite rightfully so.

Check out Popcaan’s smooth and groovy take on “Bank & God” for Vevo’s Ctrl.At.Home series below.

Ari Fletcher Ether G Herbo & His Girlfriend Taina, Says He Has Herpes, Herbo Respond

Ari Fletcher is going in on G Herbo and his girlfriend Taina Williams on IG.

Ari Fletcher certainly has no problem sharing family business on social media. Speaking openly about her distaste of photographs featuring G Herbo’s girlfriend holding her son, Ari asked the photographer responsible to promptly take down the pictures. The situation became an issue after G Herbo participated in The Crew League’s basketball tournament on TikTok over the weekend. His current girlfriend, Taina Williams, watched from the sidelines while holding his two-year-old son who he shares with Ari Fletcher.

Pictures of Taina and the little boy, whose name is Yosohn, were posted on social media, and Ari quickly hopped in the comment section to make it clear that she wasn’t having it.

“Sweetie please don’t post my son and another girl, remove this,” Ari demanded of the photographer. The Instagram page quickly complied with her request and removed the photo, only leaving pictures of Herbo and Yosohn up instead. When a fan commented on the situation to Ari, writing, “I don’t understand the point of them posting that picture of taina and your son. #childish,” Ari replied, saying, “I don’t want my son in public with her holding him because she told me out her own mouth that Yosohn does not like her. So I don’t want my son uncomfortable.”

I don’t want my son in public with her holding him because she told me out her own mouth that Yosohn does not like her. So I don’t want my son uncomfortable. https://t.co/8NhzrLTMOh

G Herbo responded to her rant saying, “Happy h*es ain’t hating.” It seems that comment only infuriated Ari Fletcher who responded, “How they get a cure for COVID before herpes.”

A post shared by The Shade Room (@theshaderoom) on Nov 10, 2020 at 3:01pm PST

While it is entirely understandable that a mother would be protective of her baby and their level of comfort with new people in their life, it might be a bit of a stretch for Ari to expect that her ex’s new girlfriend never hold her child when she isn’t around. It also seems like Ari might have been more concerned with how the situation appeared publicly than with her son’s comfort level, but ultimately it is up to Yosohn’s parents to decide what is best for him going forward.

High Kings – As I Roved Out Lyrics

As I roved out on a May morning
On a May morning right early
I spied my love upon the way
Oh Lord but she was early.
Her shoes were black, her stockings white
Her buckles shone like silver
She had a dark and rovin’ eye
And her earrings touched her shoulders.
She sang
A lith a dlddle, lith a diddle lith a dlddle dee
Cha hiddle hundiddy, cha hiddle hundiddy
and cha lan day. (x2)
How old are you my bonny be girl
how old are my darlin
How old are you my bonny be girl
“I’ll be seventeen on Sunday”

So I went to the house at the top of the hill
The moon was shining clearly
She arose to let me in
but her mother chanced to hear me.
She sang
A lith a dlddle, lith a diddle lith a dlddle dee
Cha hiddle hundiddy, cha hiddle hundiddy
and cha lan day. (x2)

She caught her by the hair of the head
And out of the room she brought her

With the root of a hazel branch
She was the well beat daughter.
Will you marry me now my soldier boy?
Will you marry me now or never?
Will you marry me now my soldier boy?
Can’t you see I’m done forever?
I won’t marry you now my bonnie be girl
I won’t marry you my darlin’
For I have got a wife at home
And how can I disown her
She sang
A lith a dlddle, lith a diddle lith a dlddle dee
Cha hiddle hundiddy, cha hiddle hundiddy
and cha lan day. (x2)

A pint at night is my delight
And a gallon in the morning
The old women they are my heartbreak
And the young ones are my darlin’s.
As I roved out on a May morning
On a May morning right early
I spied my love upon the way
Oh Lord but she was early.
She sang
A lith a dlddle, lith a diddle lith a dlddle dee
Cha hiddle hundiddy, cha hiddle hundiddy
and cha lan day. (x2)

Drake’s Son Adonis Practice His Yoga With His Mama Sophie Brussaux

You’re never too young to start yoga — just ask Drake’s son.

At the tender age of 3, Adonis has begun practicing his downward-facing dog and dolphin poses, along with his mom, Sophie Brussaux. It is not known exactly how long the “Laugh Now Cry Later” rapper and former adult actress were together, but they concealed Sophie’s pregnancy and Adonis’ existence until it was exposed by Pusha T on his 2018 diss track, “The Story of Adidon”. Drake subsequently confirmed that he was a father on his own album, Scorpion, and has since proudly showed off his son on social media.

The curly-haired child looked adorable as he appeared in his mother’s IG video, stretching out on a blue yoga mat with his face pointed towards the sky. “Yoga Sundays with my baby yogi,” the painter captioned the post in which the pair seem to be following a yoga routine on a tablet.

The little guy turned the big three last month, with Sophie posting a sweet tribute on Insta in which the Grammy Award winner was tagged. “Joyeux anniversaire mon amoureux! 3 years ago, I was meeting you for the first time, after a long 24-hr labor. I’m so proud of the little man you’re becoming, I love you more than life. The world is YOURS! We did that @champagnepapi,” she wrote. Drake also shared photos with his son and a collection of balloons, writing, “Young Stunna.”

https://www.instagram.com/reel/CHWu1EDF793/?utm_source=ig_embed

As Drake prepares to drop his 6th studio album, he has already expressed his thoughts that it will be disliked. “They hated on Views just like they will [Certified Lover Boy] but it’s music to evolve to,” the 34-year-old wrote in an Instagram comment. The new album is scheduled for release in January 2021.

Quando Rondo Praises King Von’s Suspected Shooter, Says “F*** Queen Von”

Quando Rondo is defiant as controversies grows over his possible involvement in King Von’s death

Things are getting uglier by the minute following the death of Chicago rapper King Von, and one crew is clearly claiming the hit and running all the way to the finish line. The tragic/violent incident took place outside of the Monaco Hookah Lounge nightclub in Atlanta around 3 in the morning on November 06.

It is reported that things got pretty intense between King Von’s crew and that of Quando Rando. The presence of law enforcement officials wasn’t enough to stop the gunfire that erupted, leaving two people dead, including the upcoming/talented Chicago rapper.

The man police have nabbed for pulling the trigger is Timothy Leeks, a member of Rondo’s crew. Rondo is now publicly defending his associate on social media, promising his “Grim Reaper” will make a triumphant return.

The “Shooters & Movers” rapper recently shared an image of Leeks to his Instagram Story, which he captioned “Free The Grim Reaper.” King Von’s name was also transformed into Queen Von for another post in which Rondo showcased a screenshot of a clause he’s using as evidence that his friend acted in self-defense.

The deceased Chicagoan rapper has been shown much love and respect from the likes of Lebron James, among others in the rap game, especially those from the much revered O Block section of Chicago.
However, Rondo doesn’t seem to approve of the love for his rival and proceeded to remind everyone that Von knew what he was also getting into.

“Y’all tryna take up for somebody is from the streets & definitely knew what came with this sh*t .. so please just stfu,” Rondo typed about “Queen Von.”

There is something askew about all that has happened in the past couple of days that hints at uglier things to come in the future. One can only hope things do not escalate any further, and no more lives are lost.

Kid Laroi – Without You Lyrics

You cut out a piece of me, and now I bleed internally
Left here without you (No, no, no), without you (Ooh, ooh)
And it hurts for me to think about what life could possibly be like
Without you (No, no, no), without you (No, no)

I can’t believe that you wouldn’t believe me
f*ck all of your reasons
I lost my shit, you know I didn’t mean it
Now I see it, you run and repeat it
And I can’t take it back, so in the past is where we’ll leave it, uh

So there you go, oh
Can’t make a wife out of a hoe, oh
I’ll never find the words to say I’m sorry
But I’m scared to be alone

You cut out a piece of me, and now I bleed internally
Left here without you (No, no, no), without you (Ooh, ooh)
And it hurts for me to think about what life could possibly be like
Without you (No, no, no), without you (No, no)

Oh-oh, woah-oh, oh-oh, woah
Oh-oh, woah-oh, oh-oh, woah
Without you, without you, you, ooh
Oh-oh, woah-oh, oh-oh, woah
Oh-oh, woah-oh, oh-oh, woah
Without you, without you, you, ooh

It’s gon’ be hard here on my own and
Even harder to let you go, I
Really wish that we, could’ve got this right

So here I go, oh
Can’t make a wife out of a hoe, oh
I’ll never find the words to say I’m sorry
But I’m scared to be alone (Oh)

You cut out a piece of me, and now I bleed internally
Left here without you (No, no, no), without you (Ooh, ooh)
And it hurts for me to think about what life could possibly be like
Without you (No, no, no), without you (No, no)

Oh-oh, woah-oh, oh-oh, woah
Oh-oh, woah-oh, oh-oh, woah
Without you, without you (No, no, no)

Weezer – Take On Me Lyrics

We’re talking away
I don’t know what I’m to say
I’ll say it anyway
Today’s another day to find you
Shying away
I’ll be coming for your love, OK?

Take on me (take on me)
Take me on (take on me)
I’ll be gone
In a day or two

So needless to say
I’m odds and ends
But I’ll be stumbling away
Slowly learning that life is OK
Say after me
It’s no better to be safe than sorry

Take on me (take on me)

Take me on (take on me)
I’ll be gone
In a day or two

Oh, things that you say
Is it a life or just to play my worries away
You’re all the things I’ve got to remember
You’re shying away
I’ll be coming for you anyway

Take on me (take on me)
Take me on (take on me)
I’ll be gone
In a day
Take on me (take on me)
Take me on (take on me)
I’ll be gone
In a day

Ardhito Pramono – Sudah – Story Of Kale Lyrics

[Lirik “Sudah”]

[Verse 1]
Sudah
Sudahi semua bicara
Kuingin segera berdua
Dan pagi menjelang
Melahirkan mentari pagi dan sudah
Sudahi semua prasangka
Dunia berputarlah saja
Rekam peristiwa yang takkan terulangi lagi dan sudah
Sudahi malam yang duka
Dunia kau kan baik saja
Hujan akan tiba melahirkan pelangi

[Chorus]
Belajar memahami masa depan

Takkah yang disimpan akan tenang?
Melahirkan semua nada indah
Mencoba menjadi bahagia mu sendiri

[Verse 2]
Sudah lupakan semua derita
Doa semesta menjaga
Luka akan hilang
Perlahan terobati, ooh

[Chorus]
Belajar memahami masa depan
Takkah yang disimpan akan tenang?
Melahirkan semua nada indah
Mencoba menjadi bahagia mu sendiri
