This week, Popcaan teamed up with Jamaican entertainer Protoje for their new “Like Royalty” music video premiere.
Jamaican singer Protoje has dropped his new single “Like Royalty,” a collaboration with Popcaan that features on the Grammy-nominated reggae star’s upcoming album In Search of Lost Time. “This song is one of the realest pieces of music I’ve ever written,” Protoje told Rolling Stone of the track, which was inspired by his experience at Music’s Biggest Night in 2018. “I got to bring my friend and my family to the Grammys. They were the ones who really took care of me when I came to Kingston, trying to make it in music — it meant a lot to see them sitting there beside me.” (Rolling Stone)
