Shots fired? Popcaan shades artistes who target YouTube trending status

Popcaan has seemingly taken a hit at the artistes who produce music with the intent to trend on YouTube’s platform.

Dancehall artiste Popcaan isn’t holding punches these days.

Fresh off a star-studded vacation with Drake and the release of his Fixtape album, the artiste has taken a swipe at those who would do music simply to trend on YouTube.

The Ova Dweet deejay posted series of photos of himself in front one of his luxury vehicles yesterday, August 29, with the caption “All who only do music fi trend pan youtube put up unu hand”, a swipe that included several laughing emojis.

Generating more than 115,000 likes and over 1,600 comments since it was shared, the post has many hazarding guesses it may be jab at rivals Alkaline and Intence whose songs have controlled much of the streaming platform’s trending rank in recent times. In a tweet following the Fixtape release, Alkaline replied with a less than subtle critique of the album which he referred to as “fishtape”.

Reggae artiste Protoje responded to the post with “Breddaaaa take time no man” while a fan added “Tell dem to level up” even as several others commented “Chubble”.

Popcaan’s album entered the Billboard 200 album chart at number 94 upon release.
