FADER recently spoke to Brooklyn producer/DJ Dre Skull, who is also founder of Popcaan and Vybz Kartel current label, Mixpak Records. While he couldn’t share much, he revealed that Rihanna’s people have reached out to him and some of his close artists friends.
“I know firsthand and secondhand that she’s been reaching out to a lot of people in the dancehall world. I’m not suggesting it’s gonna be [a dancehall album] but [her people] are excited about dancehall and to work in that sort of context. They’ve reached out to Popcaan, but I’ve talked to a number of people in Jamaica that they’ve reached out to,” Dre Skull told The Fader.
My two-cents: While there’s still no confirmation, that idea of that has me all excited. That would be hella dope. Why she’s never explored that before is beyond me.
