Full Frequency, the sixth studio album for international dancehall superstar Sean Paul, is gearing up to be a menu of eclectic musical flavours suitable for most palates.
The album, to be released in November, sees Sean Paul collaborating with artistes who add a mixture of genres, complementing the dynamism of the artiste.
For Sean Paul, the album represents longevity.
"It is difficult to stay inspired. I am grateful that I am still inspired to do music and being noticed at the current level that I am," Sean Paul said in an interview with Factory78.
Juicy J, 2 Chainz and Nicki Minaj collaborate on Sean Paul's single, Entertainment. Bringing hiphop into the mix with their rapping styles, they chant lyrics often associated with reggae.
Damian Marley collaboration
Damian 'Jr Gong' Marley can be heard on Sean Paul's single Riot. Sean Paul's dancehall vibe and Jr Gong's strong reggae crooning mixed with beats of electronic dance music and hiphop create a fusion that instantly captures the interests of listeners.
Australian singer Iggy Azalea, who Sean Paul says is "fresh in the business but has a good vibe", is featured on the single, Wickedest Style, while Latin American crooner Prince Royce affixes his smooth romantic vocals to Dangerous Ground.
Nyla (Jamaican songstress), formerly of Brick and Lace, is featured on the raunchy number, Porn Star.
Sean Paul, who has more than 25 collaborations in his career, urges artistes to work together to build the music industry.
"Way too many people in our industry think the business is all about them alone, when we actually need each other for creative competition and growth," he said.
