International Dancehall artiste Sean Paul is at the wheels of creativity once more as he puts his creative genius to work.  This time the eclectic artiste is working on his sixth studio album due to be released this year.

The Gimmie the Light singjay is in a Los Angeles studio working on songs for the yet untitled project which he hopes will follow in the blazing path set by its predecessors Dutty Rock and The Trinity. The singjay will also be going back to basics in his latest effort. “There will be more Jamaican production on this album compared to Tomahawk Technique,” Sean Paul hinted on the production side of it and expects it to make a musical statement.

Sean Paul cemented his presence on the international stage with Dutty Rock in 2002 selling over six-million units. The VP/Atlantic album brought him to the forefront and with it came collaborations with some of R&B’s greats such as Beyonce with Baby Boy and Give It Up to Me with Keyshia Cole and Rihanna Break It Off. It also earned him Best Reggae Album at the Grammys.

Since then he has not looked back following up with one Billboard hit after another among them Baby Boy, Get Busy, Gimmie The Light, We Be Burning, Still In Love, Mek It Clap and Temperature.
 
Sean Paul also made a trek to India where he was a whopping success so much so that the promoter is already looking forward to having him on a return trip. Late last year he collaborated with girl group The Saturdays in their new hit single What About Us.

Looking ahead for 2013 Sean Paul hopes to recreate the success of his earlier albums with his latest projects and also to again dominate the Billboard chart with singles soon to be released.

With reggae breaking new ground every day in other parts of the world Sean Paul will be looking to take Dancehall to new heights.

Sean Paul was among the nominees for the Grammy Awards Best Reggae Album for his Tomahawk Technique album released through Atlantic Records, making it his fourth album Grammy nomination.   2012 was a year of breaking new ground for the artiste who headlined Austrias' coolest mobile concert stage-The Red Bull Secret Tour, where top acts such as Sido, Culcha Candela, Aloe Blacc or Cro have done it before.
