Beres Hammond and Popcaan Celebrate Mothers with “A Mother’s Love!”


Reggae legend Beres Hammond and Dancehall superstar Popcaan have collaborated again on a soul touching single, “A Mother’s Love;” a heartfelt melody expressing unending love for their mothers and how prayers and hard work can lead to success.  The song is also a reflection of the love people have for the women who have raised them.

The soothing single hears each artiste share real life stories from their childhood with examples of acts of love done by their mothers.  Produced by Shane C. Brown for Shane Brown Music and again teaming up with his signed inhouse team from T.M.I. Records and Robert Browne on guitars.  The single is an enduring reminder of the selfless acts of love mothers do for their children daily.

To accompany the release of the single is a heartfelt music video that features Beres and Popcaan in their childhood days.  Directed by Prof and Kryss Ras, each artiste's mother and grandmother are portrayed at pivotal points in the performers' lives, begining with a split-screen shows scenes from 1970 and 1998 signifying the similarities of a young Beres and a young Popcaan's life and each mother’s love and care.

Speaking from Harmony House, Beres said “it warms my heart to be making music, and to make music with Popcaan.”  Popcaan added “Uncle Beres is an older version of me.  Working with him and Shane was natural – we all have a natural chemistry.  It is right that we sing about our Mothers and what they do for us – some things that people don’t get to see.”

“A Mother’s Love” is the second collaboration between Beres Hammond and Popcaan.  The first single, “God Is Love” received international acclaim upon release.  The songs producer, Shane C. Brown says “the chemistry between Beres, Popcaan and myself made it so easy to do more than one song. What is really amazing about this song is it's the first "mama" song from both artistes and the lyrics of the song are true stories.”

The song is distributed by VPAL Music and made its debut on Friday August 27th, 2021.  Radio premiers are set for North America, the Caribbean and Europe.

About Beres Hammond:
Over the course of a 40-year career, Beres has poured his smoky-sweet voice an instrument of subtlety and power reminiscent of an Otis Redding or a Teddy Pendergrass—over every kind of riddim track, from the funked-up reggae jams of the ’70s fusion band Zap Pow to the lush instrumentation of his 1976 album Soul Reggae to the spare digital beat of his 1985 dancehall breakthrough “What One Dance Can Do.” Cuts like “Tempted To Touch” and “Who Say” with Buju Banton are still as effective in the dancehall today as they were as pre-releases. The ’90s were the decade for Hammond’s breakthrough, during which he blazed a trail of modern classics for a variety of producers, from the strugglers’ anthem “Putting Up Resistance” (Tappa) to lovers’ laments like “Come Back Home” (Star Trail) and “Double Trouble” (Steely & Clevie). Beres’s sophisticated musical taste and initiable delivery is well suited to translate easily across cultural divides, yet the international reggae massive has remained his most loyal fan base.
About Popcaan:  
Genre-bending Jamaican dancehall singer Popcaan rose to international success in the early 2010s thanks to singles like "Only Man She Want" and "Party Shot." First as a prominent member of Vybz Kartel's posse and through work with Dre Skull's Mixpak label, and now signed to Drake's OVO Sound roster, the versatile and prolific artist transcended genres through his own singles and on tracks like Jamie xx's 2015 smash "I Know There's Gonna Be (Good Times)" and Gorillaz's 2017 "Saturnz Barz," all leading up to the release of his 2018 sophomore album, Forever.  His current project, Fixtape was released in 2020.
