Kingston, JAMAICA: Grammy Award winning artiste Sean Paul has been added to the line-up for the 25th staging of Reggae Sumfest. The multi-platinum artiste will break his current Europe tour for a fourth appearance on the festival.
Having racked up an impressive catalogue and a huge fan base worldwide over two decades, Sean Paul continues to be relevant in the global music industry with a legacy of chart topping music including the classic Like Glue (2002),Temperature (2005) and in recent tomes Cheap Thrills and Rockabye.
The artiste last performance on the show in 2014. With Baddabanz Band, Baddagyalz Dancers along with Farenheit and Tour DJ Coppershaun Sean Paul is set to rewrite history with a high energy set. His Saturday April 01, performance in Ocho Rios at the Moon Palace Jamaica Grande at the Sean Paul Live in Concert is a signal to the power and flavour of the artiste mood as he is keyed up to play for his Jamaican fans this summer.
Sean Paul released Crick Neck last year, in collaboration with Chi-Ching Ching and the single did well on the local music and video charts. He has also been doing great work with local producer Don Corleon who produced Tek Weh Yuh Heart featuring rapper Tory Lanez, who is also billed for the Festival. The producer is also looking to release Body with Sean Paul and Migos soon.
