Sean Paul is the most successful Jamaican artist of all time on the US charts, with three #1 singles ("Temperature," "Get Busy," and "Baby Boy"), five Top-Ten hits (including "We Be Burnin'" and "Gimme The Light"), and eight chart entries over two worldwide multi-platinum albums. "The Trinity" confirmed Sean's stature as truly an international superstar, with total global sales in excess of four million. The album followed Sean's 2002 RIAA double-platinum certified VP/Atlantic debut, "Dutty Rock," which sold more than six million copies worldwide.
More than just proving Sean's staying power, "Imperial Blaze" (August 18) represents his evolution from a Jamaican crossover star into a bonafide pop hitmaker with a rare gift for bringing cutting-edge sounds to an international following. "My first album was mainly a compilation of songs that were out in the dancehall," he explains. "On the second album we added a few special ones, and with 'The Trinity' we did even more exclusive songs. But now with "Imperial Blaze," most of them were recorded especially for this album. It's all about my growth as an artist."
On "Imperial Blaze," the songwriting represents a giant leap forward in Sean Paul's artistry. High-energy cuts like "Press It Up" on McGregor's Daybreak riddim are already sparking the worldwide dancehall circuit, but other cuts find Sean in a more reflective mode. "My music has reached the point where it's expanding," he says. "I'm talking about relationships and different things we all go through in life." Not only has the subject matter evolved, but vocally Sean's experimenting with different melodies and harmonies to create a richer new sound.
