International reggae/dancehall superstar Sean Paul is busy fulfilling the title of his sixth studio album, Full Frequency, as he continues to complete an extensive world tour which has so far spanned four continents.

The Grammy Award-winning artiste is currently in the UK for his latest appearance at the UK Wireless Festival (July 5 and 6) at Perry Park in Birmingham and Finsbury Park in London, respectively.

The Wireless Festival is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a world-famous selection of the best in hip hop, pop and dance. Sean Paul joins a cast of fellow international stars like Kanye West, Bruno Mars, Pharrell, Robin Thicke and Ellie Goulding.
