Sean Paul

Sean Paul Ryan Francis Henriques, known simply as Sean Paul (Kingston, January 9, 1973), is a Jamaican singer. His genre can be called Jamaican Dancehall.Born of a Portuguese father and a Jamaican mother of English and Chinese origin, he began studying music very early and had his first successes in 1996 producing Baby Girl. The single was released after a demo that had not received much attention. In Jamaica it becomes a real cult, while for a debut in the States it will have to wait until 1998.So in ’98 Infiltrate was released, even if the success is not very relevant. In 2000, thanks to the album Stage One, produced by the record label VP Records, he was able to take over the top of the charts. The album will be considered as the 4th best reggae record of the year. The album will be anticipated by the single Hot Gal Today with the participation of Mr Vegas.After a short break Sean Paul returns to the forefront in 2003 with the album Dutty Rock, which will have a worldwide success coming to Europe and Italy, with the single Get Busy, which even comes in first place as regards sales singles; from the same album Sean will also release the singles Like Glue, I’m still in love with you and Gimme the Light, which will have less success but will be appreciated anyway.In addition, he collaborates with Beyoncé Knowles on the single Baby Boy, which is a great success. Among his many collaborations we remember those with Rihanna, Eve and Busta Rhymes.In 2005 the album The Trinity is released, which gets a good sales response. The first single extracted is We Be Burnin’, followed by Ever Blazin’ and Temperature. Also on the album The Trinity is the song Give It Up to Me with Keisha Cole that will be included in the movie Step Up. After the success with “Give it up to me” he has also prepared an album for 2009 with the release of the song “watch them roll” which for now is a good success.
