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 โ€œGimme the Lightโ€, โ€œGet Busyโ€ and โ€œLike Glueโ€, garnering him a Grammy and making him an international superstar. Heโ€™s one of the few dancehall artists to have worked with stars on the level ofย  Beyonce, Estelle, DMX, Keyshia Cole and more.โ€”Mikelah Rose
