"Pop Champagne" is a song by American hip hop recording artists Ron Browz and Jim Jones, featuring fellow American rapper and Dipset member Juelz Santana. It was officially released on September 4, 2008 through Columbia and Universal Motown Records as the lead single from Jim Jones' fourth album Pray IV Reign (2009). The song proved to be Jones' second most successful single to date, behind his 2006 hit "We Fly High". This instrumental was sampled in "Too Easy" by Tyrese featuring Ludacris.[citation needed]

Background[edit]

"Pop Champagne" featuring Jim Jones and Juelz Santana is actually a remix. The original is solely the producer of the song, Ron Browz. "I was going home one day, and DJ Jazzy Joyce — at 4:30 in the morning — was playing the [song]," Jim Jones recalled of the first time he heard "Pop Champagne." "And I know how much Ron wanted to become an artist and break into the game. ... So when I heard it, I was like, 'Damn, it got a good sound.' ... I was just being courteous, as he did so many hot beats for me. ... So, I jumped on the track, like, 'Let's see what it do.' It started to sound a little bit crazy, and I said, 'Well, let's see if we put Juelz Santana on it how crazy could it get. And I called Young Hub, and Hub was like, 'Aiight, on the strength of you, I'll jump on it for you."[1]
