It’s been about seven years since Sean Paul dropped his sixth studio album Full Frequency, his final album under the Atlantic Records umbrella. The project saw 14 cuts and additional appearances from Damian Marley, Juicy J, 2 Chainz, Nicki Minaj, Konshens, Iggy Azalea, and more. Since then, the legendary artist liberated the EP Mad Love the Prequel, and more recently delivered loose singles like “Shot & Wine” with Stefflon Don, “Boasty” with Wiley, “Contra La Pared” with J Balvin, “When It Comes To You,” and “Bad Inna Bed,” among others.
Today, Sean Paul makes an official return with his new LP Live N Livin, a 16-track body of work with assists from the likes of Busy Signal, Buju Banton, Masicka, Jesse Royal, and Serani. All-in-all, it’s a solid dancehall project that will be perfect for the dance floor when the outside world opens back up.
What’s crazy about Live N Livin is that it’s only one of two full-length releases planned by Sean Paul for 2020. In addition to the Dutty Rock Records release, this May with see the quick follow-up Scorcha, which — in a recent interview with HotNewHipHop — he revealed will see contributions from Tove Lo, Sia, Gwen Stefani, Jada Kingdom, Stylo G, and Ty Dolla $ign — the last of whom is expected to appear on a single titled “Only Fan.”
As of 2017, Sean Paul has sold upwards of 26 million records throughout his career, making him one of the most prolific and iconic talents within the reggae and dancehall genres. He’s earned a warehouse-worth of Gold and Platinum plaques around the world, and timeless classics like “Get Busy,” “Gimme The Light,” “I’m Still In Love With You,” and “Temperature” continue to remain as DJ favorites to this day.
