In the early 2000s, Sean Paul rose to fame despite his island of Jamaica being the second poorest country in the Caribbean. He beat the odds that were stacked against him by emerging into an award-winning, international recording artist.
Throughout his career, he has released many hit singles that landed on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart, with the three classics, ‘Temperature,’ ‘Cheap Thrills,’ and ‘Get Busy,’ peaking at number one. This in and of itself is nothing short of a huge success.
In 2013, Sean won a Grammy for the ‘best reggae album,’ Dutty Rock, in addition to scoring an award for ‘the best new music’ at the MTV Europe Music Awards. He has been nominated more than 30 times for a number of prestigious music awards.
Sean has maintained his relevance in the music industry ever since he skyrocketed to international stardom. To this day, he continues to dazzle his fans with his songs and performances.
This year, he has not one but two albums dropping. His upcoming album Live N Livin’ is set to release next month and we’re sure it’s gonna be hot. With all of the tracks featuring other Jamaican dancehall and reggae artists, we can expect to hear some epic collaborations.
