Sean Paul

With a winning combination of traditional dancehall riddims and Jamaican patwa, a handsome face and a few dance moves, Sean Paul elevated dancehall music to new global heights in the early 2000s. His second album Dutty Rock contained hits like “Gimme the Light”, “Get Busy” and “Like Glue”, garnering him a Grammy and making him an international superstar. He’s one of the few dancehall artists to have worked with stars on the level of  Beyonce, Estelle, DMX, Keyshia Cole and more.—Mikelah Rose
