Dancehall artiste Popcaan continues to make international strides, and now he is among a list of accomplished international artistes on Vice’s ‘100 Best Albums of the 2010s’.

Popcaan made the cut for his 2018 sophomore album, Forever, that peaked at No. 2 on the Billboard Reggae chart. The album contains several of the entertainer’s hits, including Firm and Strong and Silence.

“Thankful for the support from everyone on this project.”

“Popcaan’s sophomore studio album, Forever, is a lush and dynamic body of work that beautifully displays the artiste’s lyrical sensibilities while pointing to the changing sonic landscape of dancehall,” Vice said.

“Though the artiste used to be under Vybz Kartel’s tutelage, Forever sees an artistically mature Popcaan continuing to form a legacy of his own as one of dancehall’s most formidable forces.”

Popcaan shared the news with his 1.8 million followers on Thursday, and in less than an hour, the post was liked more than 7,000 times.

“Thankful for the support from everyone on this project,” Popcaan said in his caption.

The entertainer is the only Jamaican on the list that was compiled by the popular Canadian digital media and broadcasting company. The list also includes other big names like Nicki Minaj, Cardi B, Beyonce, Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Burna Boy, Frank Ocean, Power Trip, Kendrick Lamar and Mac Miller.
