Sean Paul is the latest dancehall artist to add his voice to the ongoing debate of Drake making dancehall music and not crediting its origin.
The "Get Busy" deejay also gave his piece on Drake, Justin Bieber, Major Lazer and others making dancehall records but not necessarily crediting the origin of the music or the artists.
"It is a sore point when people like Drake or Bieber or other artists come and do dancehall-orientated music but don't credit where dancehall came from and they don't necessarily understand it," Sean Paul added. "A lot of people get upset, they get sour. And I know artists back in Jamaica that don't like Major Lazer because they think they do the same thing that Drake and Kanye did - they take and take and don't credit."
Sean Paul recently signed a new deal with with Island Records and is currently working on his next album. The dancehall hitmaker says that he understand the importance of keeping up with the latest trends in music in particular dancehall.
"Dancehall is back but this time it's also infused with Afrobeat, with hip-hop, with trap, and that's fine with me," SP said. "Sure, I would like what we do in Jamaica, that authentic dancehall, to be on top, but it simply isn't. So I want this album to bridge that gap."
