“Dancehall is alive and well. Check the pulse. This album is one I hold very dear to my heart for many reasons. It’s the first album of mine being released off my own label, Dutty Rock Productions, and a body of work which has allowed me to work so closely with artistes I revere in my genre,” said Sean Paul.
The Grammy Award-winning artiste released his seventh studio album, Live N Livin, on all platforms on Friday, March 11. Live N Livin is produced by Dutty Rock Productions and distributed by ONErpm.
Live N Livin features collaborations from 22 reggae and dancehall powerhouses like Buju Banton, Damian “Jr Gong” Marley, Agent Sasco, Mavado, Busy Signal and newcomers such as Govana, Chi Ching Ching, Intence, Skillibeng and several other artistes who play a pivotal role and whose sound remains a cornerstone of the genre.
The 16-track album was produced with collaboration over confrontation undertone; 15 include features and one single from Sean Paul. In the midst of this great body of work highlighting dancehall from Jamaica, Ghanian dancehall artiste Stonebwoy is also featured on the album’s Guns of Navarone remix.
“Stonebwoy is a very talented artiste from Ghana who always pays homage to the dancehall genre and visits the island of Jamaica. It was clear to me when he stated he wanted to be a part of this project, I could not say no” said Sean Paul.
With over one year at home due to the pandemic, like many artistes Sean Paul has been unable to hit the stage and tour vigorously as he is accustomed to. Using his time to record two albums, Live N Livin and Scorcha, Sean Paul has partnered with Dreamstage and is set to perform virtually for his fans across the world during ‘Live from Jamaica’ on Saturday, April 10 via www.dreamstage.live.
