Sean Paul recently hosted a preview party for his upcoming album Tomahawk Technique at The Darby Downstairs. Party-goers enjoyed Voli Vodka cocktails while they rocked out to both classic Sean Paul tunes like "Temperature" and "Get Busy," as well as songs from his soon-to-be-released album. The first single off his album, "Got 2 Luv U," features Alexis Jordan and has already become a Top Ten hit in eight countries. The Jamaican dancehall and reggae star is working with a handful of talented producers, including Benny Blanco, Rico Love, and Stargate, and he even makes his own debut as a producer on his track titled "Roll wid di Don."
"Tomahawk Technique", Sean Paul's fifth studio album has been internationally chart-topping on the other side of the pond since January, peaking at #3 in Switzerland. With its September debut on the horizon in the U.S. the dancehall legend recently stated in an interview with Billboard magazine, that he wanted to take a breath before re-introducing himself to his beloved western fans. Ditching his signature braids for a modern Mohawk and velvet rope aesthetic, Sean Paul's new album seeks to revolutionize reggae and dancehall in exchange for a wider audience. Despite his past success and a sizable following, prior to "Tomahawk Technique" Sean Paul had somewhat of a niche appeal, mainly attracting devout fans of Reggae/Dancehall while influencing hip-hop circles.
