We’re always going to ride for Sean Paul, just on general principle. Not only was he the most important artist of dancehall’s last great era (we’re ready for the next one) in our opinion, but he’s also one of the nicest, most genuine artists you can meet—never any rock star airs about him. So even if “Got 2 Luv U,” his Stargate-produced single with singer Alexis Jordan, isn’t the comeback tune we wanted from SP (whose last single was the 2009 one drop “Hold My Hand”) we’re not mad at it, either. The Vegas-shot video takes the tune’s glitz pop feel up several notches with scenes of Sean, who’s ditched the cornrows in favor of a mohawk, observing a striptease with a regal scepter in his hand, performing at superclub Haze, and just generally doing decadent Vegas things. Hey, if it ain’t your style, can we suggest revisiting Sean’s first ever video appearance?
