Sean Paul’s distinct voice, catchy rhythms, and first class productions have been the perfect blend for the success of this Grammy Award-winning Jamaican international superstar. Born Sean Paul Henriques in Jamaica on January 9, 1973, he rose to international fame in 2002 with the success of his second studio album ‘Dutty Rock’, which was fuelled by his Billboard Hot 100 chart toppers, ‘Gimmie the Light’ and ‘Get Busy’.
Sean Paul attended the University of Technology with hopes of pursuing a profession in Hotel Management but his love for music was more powerful. His recording career began in the late nineties with the premiere of his single, ‘Baby Girl’. In 2000, Sean Paul released his debut album ‘Stage One’ with VP Records. To date, he has released eight studio albums including ‘Dutty Rock’ (2002) which he won the Grammy for Best Reggae Album, and ‘The Trinity’ (2005) which was certified platinum in Europe and by the Recording Industry Association of America. He also went on to release ‘Imperial Blaze’ (2009), ‘Tomahawk Technique’ (2012), and most recently ‘Full Frequency’ in 2014 which were all well received.
Sean Paul’s hard work and dedication over the years has earned him several Grammy and Billboard Music Award nominations. His accomplishments include an American Music Award, MOBO Awards, Soul Train Awards, MTV Music Awards, ASCAP Rhythm and Soul Music Awards, a Source Award and a BET Award. He is the only Jamaican artiste to have won an American Music Award (2006) for Favourite Pop/Rock Male artiste and also the first Jamaican to be featured on the cover of Vibe Magazine. Sean Paul enjoys such accolades but is keen on remaining humble and making his fans proud.
He collaborated with Sia for one of the biggest hits of 2016, ‘Cheap Thrills’ and more recently with Clean Bandit for the world wide smash ‘Rockabye’. Add to this his plethora of solo hits including ‘Temperature’ and ‘Get Busy’, this performance is not to be missed.
