Sean Paul is one of those names in the industry that is synonymous with feel-good music. Having been a staple on the scene for 15 plus years he is an internationally known reggae- dancehall artist who many rely on as a mainstream resource for Caribbean music.
The Jamaican singer-songwriter has released numerous hits worldwilde. His first hit single, Infiltrate, jump started his career in the year 2000, followed by his second studio album Dutty Rock, giving rise to its singles, Gimmie The Light and his duet with Beyoncé on Baby Boy. The album sold over six million copies and won the Grammy for Reggae Album of the Year in 2004. Paul continued his success over the years with Billboard chart topping hits such as Temperature that stayed in the top 100 for 17 weeks. His fifth and sixth albums were also nominated for a Grammy for Reggae Album of the Year.
Paul has had a stellar 2016 so far. He teamed up with fellow dancehall artist, Chi Ching Ching, on the song Crick Neck, and accompanied him in the making of the hot music video, dancehall fans are anxiously anticipating. At Coachella Weekend One, Paul made a guest appearance on Major Lazer's stage and performed his collaboration, Paradise, with tropical house producer Matoma, during the second weekend. He also recently teamed up with Jamaican in LA, DJ/ music producer, Borgeous on Ride It, to be featured on the DJ's album out in May.
Keeping with the up-beat party sound we recognize and love from Sean Paul is his new single, Trumpets. The song made it's debut in late March and features Paul on the track with rising Spanish DJ, Sak Noel and buzzing music producer Salvi. The big tune has been making its way into the set of every well know club DJ, as it is the most downloaded track in April on the popular website, DJCity. The song takes sound cues from Major Lazer, filled with air horns and trumpets (hence the name), mixed with EDM beats and luscious dancehall vibes.
