"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.
On this record Sean Paul has pulled all the stops, collaborating with an amalgam of the industry’s best producers/songwriters including Benny Blanco, who's had a hand in hits for Katy Perry(Teenage Dream) and Maroon5(Moves Like Jagger:”), Stargate who are credited in producing Beyonce's “Irresistible," and Shellback who worked with Usher on “DJ Got Us Falling in Love”, the outcome is a high-fidelity party album laden with electro-pop, hip-hop and R&B influences. Each track heavily vested in beautifully polished synthetic melodies that embrace Sean Paul's smooth island voice and follow a pulsing drum beat. Featured guests include Kelly Roland and Alexis Jordan.
Sean Paul’s collaboration with the masters of digital production has made "Tomahawk Technique" a contender at the clubs against a the current repertoire of bangers orchestrated by the reigning champs Pitbull and Kanye West. Sean Paul is currently on tour and touches down tomorrow night in New York City’s Webster Hall for a potentially legendary performance alongside DJ Spynfo, DJ Naim tickets on sale.
