Dancehall legend, Sean Paul, has returned with the first official single from his upcoming album, Full Frequency today. The single, "Want Dem All" featuring Konshens, is another smash for Paul, who continues to go strong after countless years of success. The dancehall star has also released the tracklisting for the album, as well as club dates, in which people can catch the star performing live. See below for the upcoming club dates, as well as the tracklist for Full Frequency. Listen to the single here. Full Frequency will be out in 2014 on Atlantic.
Sean Paul is fresh from the One Love Peace Festival Summer tour that saw him through Portugal, Rome, Naples, Cape Verde, Germany, London, Bristol, South Cyprus, Canada and the non-stop party island of Ibiza. Not content to rest on his laurels, Sean Paul is set to begin touring in support of his fifth studio album, Tomahawk Technique, in December in the United States and across Europe.
Armed with a new look and energized passion for music, the past year has produced a creative outburst from Sean. This is seen through his emergence as a producer, in which he helmed the track "Roll Wid di Don." Also, working with artists like Cecile, Tami Chynn, Mr. Vega, and Wayne Marshall on his critically acclaimed Riddim album "Blaze Fia," and the follow up album "Material" has been matched by a stream of new music and collaborations with artists including Pitbull, T-Pain, Ludacris, Bob Sinclair, CongoRock, Mya and Kelly Rowland.
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.
As the sound of music is ever-changing, so are the faces. When artist Sean Paul appeared on the music scene, he definitely changed the face of dancehall music as we know it. Singer Ms. Triniti seems to have taken note of that and is stepping up to the plate to follow suit. Born to a Trinidadian father and an American mother, Triniti Bhaguandas decided to stick to her Caribbean heritage when it came to music.
Although she has been nicknamed ‘The Caribbean’s answer to Beyonce’, her music career did not get off to a smooth start. She was originally signed to Sony/Columbia Records but was later released. She decided to take the independent route which brought her more success than her original record deal venture. She has three albums under her belt already and has toured with artists such as Ja Rule, Kevin Lyttle, Elephant Man and Sean Paul.
