Online PR News – 11-July-2011 – – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New York, NY (July 7, 2011) –Superstar singer Sean Paul is back just in time to provide the soundtrack for Summer with the undeniably addictive “Got 2 Luv U” featuring Alexis Jordan. The infectious track, which is the Atlantic Records recording artist’s first official offering since 2009’s Imperial Blaze, is available now on www.AllSeanPaul.com and will hit iTunes on July 19th.
Sean Paul, who has sold over 10 Million albums worldwide since bursting onto the scene in 2000 with Stage One, has spent the past few months recording with a star-studded collection of collaborators including Benny Blanco (Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Wiz Khalifa, Ke$ha) and worldwide sensation Akon. “Got 2 Luv U” is the first track to surface from recent sessions and features Roc Nation songbird Alexis Jordan as well as production from Norwegian duo Stargate (Rihanna, Ne-Yo, Chris Brown) but fans can expect two more singles to follow in the coming months from the dancehall king.
"For a longtime I've heard Stargate making dancehall inflected beats and wanted to work with them,” said Sean Paul. “It’s amazing that coming from Norway they have such a good understanding of Jamaican drums and when I heard the track I immediately vibed to it. They are super talented guys and I loved working with them...this song was just what I needed to turn things UP for me again!"
In addition to his own single, Sean Paul is also featured on Pitbull’s bubbling smash “Shake Señora” off his new album Planet Pit, which debuted at number seven on the Billboard album charts. The track, which also has contributions from T-Pain and Ludacris, was the second highest selling single off of the album during its debut week and has continued to gain popularity.
Beyond the new music, SP has also launched an international summer tour with stops so far in Portugal, Rome and Naples as well as upcoming dates in Cape Verde, Ibiza, Germany, London (for the One Love Peace Festival), Bristol, South Cyprus and Canada. The performances mark Sean’s return to the stage after a knee operation that left him sidelined for a few months.
“Got 2 Luv U” is the next step in Sean’s continual pop dominance and serves as a lyrical appetizer for his loyal legions of fans as they prepare for the next in a wave of classic albums that also includes the multi-platinum, Grammy-winning classic Dutty Rock and the platinum smash The Trinity. With an undeniable track record for crafting hit singles as a solo artist, including cuts like “Deport Them,” “Like Glue,” “We Be Burnin’” and “Temperature,” as well as a history of taking other artists’ songs to the next level through tracks like Beyonce’s “Baby Boy,” Jay Sean’s “Do You Remember” and Eve’s “Give It Up To You,” Sean Paul has established himself as one of the seminal pop voices of his generation.
