Due to the overwhelming success of The Phantom Vol. 1, Tad’s Record is pleased to announce that The Phantom Vol. 2 will hit digital outlets and retail stores on Tuesday, April 17th. For the second installment of this new series that focuses on emerging and/or re-emerging talent, Tad’s Record has chosen fast-rising star Popcaan and reenergized lyrical masters Assassin and Aidonia. In addition, I-Octane is back by popular demand on the newPhantom with brand new singles.
Popcaan’s meteoric rise among Jamaica’s new crop of Dancehall deejays is underscored by the international success of his single “Only Man She Want,” which made its Billboard debut earlier this month at #89 on the Top R&B/Hip Hop Singles chart. “Only Man She Want,” is one of the featured singles on The Phantom Vol. 2, as well as his summer anthems “Ravin,” and “Party Shot.”
When asked about being a featured artist on The Phantom Vol. 2, Popcaan replied “yeah man, it’s great. ‘Nuff respect Tad’s.”
Two well respected lyricists that have surfaced from the new millennium crop of Dancehall artists in the mid 2000s, both Assassin and Aidonia have refocused and recharged their energies over the past year, spewing out a series of stinging new tunes. Assassin’s biting “Talk How Me Feel” and Aidonia’s naughty “Caribbean Girl” are just a couple of the fresh singles included on The Phantom Vol. 2.
“Popcaan is one of Jamaica’s brightest new Dancehall artists. He’s doing better than predicted internationally, and he’s definitely at the forefront of the latest generation of deejays right now,” says Tad’s Record owner and founder Tad Dawkins. “Assassin and Aidonia have really stepped up to the plate over the past year, and are doing incredibly well. I believe we’ve got great songs from great artists on The Phantom Vol. 2, material music fans will love and appreciate.”
I-Octane, one of the featured artists in The Phantom Vol. 1, returns on Vol. 2 by popular demand – largely due to his overwhelming popularity and extensive body of new material. The Phantom Vol. 2 includes I-Octane’s single “Cyaan Do We Nutten” and his brand new single “My Story.”
The Phantom Vol. 2, featuring Popcaan, I-Octane, Assassin and Aidonia will be available digitally and in stores on Tuesday, April 17th.
