Count on Sean Paul for two things: international club bangers and good vibes. Actually three: he always wears cool sunglasses. The Jamaican dance hall rapper is about to drop a whole new album.
Sean Paul always has the right temperature. For me, it’s 72 degrees, but more like 62 when I sleep.
For Sean, probably 100. His new album “Scorcha” is scorching hot, and it drops in just over two weeks, but we have a preview.
When it’s Sean Paul…
Clip from “Temperature”: “Well, woman the way the time cold, I wanna be keepin’ you warm.”
Warm? Please. The music is going to be fire.
Clip from “No Lies”: “No lies. Gyal, we never miss, feel your eyes, they all over me.”
And with so many top 10s…
Clip from “Rockabye”: “Oh! Rockabye, rocka-rocka-rocka-bye, rockabye.”
Have no fear. Sean’s new album, “Scorcha”…
Sean Paul: “Is me missing partying and a few songs like that, but then also a few songs where it’s just more introspective.”
Clip from “Dynamite”: “Dynamite, oh, ’cause when we touch in the street, and we fresh head to feet.”
That’s “Dynamite,” featuring Sia.
Sean Paul: “To me, she’s such a talent that she doesn’t have to show her face. That’s amazing in this time. It shows her strong songwriting and amazing voice.”
Clip from “How We Do It”: “Strike ignition. They’re gonna see how we do it.”
And “How We Do It,” with Pia Mia.
Sean Paul: “Music is something to lean up on, and there’s something for everyone on this album.”
And Sean just dropped the visualizer for “No Fear.”
Clip from “No Fear”: “Got to be prepared for this land.”
That one’s got Nicki Jam.
Clip from “No Fear”: “Dime, ¿de qué vale, en que vive en una mansión?”
And Damian Marley, the youngest son of Bob Marley.
Sean Paul: “It’s about facing life with all its adversities.”
With no fear, of course, but…
Alex Miranda: “We all might be brave, but then a cockroach walks by, and then we’re running. What would you say your most irrational fear is?”
Sean Paul: “I’m not a fan of seeing rats, man, especially if they’re indoors. I’m like, ‘Yo!’ It makes me crazy; I draw for brooms.”
As far as the serious kind…
Sean Paul: “It’s not being able to spend the time that I can with close family.”
Like his 5-year-old son, Levi.
Sean Paul: “He prays to God that I stop this nonsense. I said, ‘What nonsense?’ And he said, ‘Going away and coming back nonstop, bro!’”
Alex Miranda: “All of this doesn’t just come for free.”
Sean Paul’s new album “Scorcha” drops on May 27.
