Sean Paul's Twerk Audition video for new track, "Entertainment," featuring 2 Chainz & Juicy J, will provide just that (hours of it if you keep refreshing). The new club-friendly collab is off Paul's sixth studio album, due out this fall on Atlantic/VP Records (title TBA). Produced by Maejor Ali, SixOne, Young Yonny and Chef Tone, the album will see a combination of hip-hop and pop with the Jamaican Grammy Award-winner's signature dancehall flavor. "My sound has definitely evolved," Sean Paul tells VIBE (learn how and hear more from Paul after the video). First, press play if you find the bootay entertaining.
VIBE: How would you describe your sound at the moment compared to say 5 years ago?
Sean Paul: It's still dancehall music. Dancehall has penetrated different genres. Every major genre, whether it is EDM, hip-hop, pop, etc has the influence of dancehall music in it and I am working to bring more attention to that as a global sound. The music I'm making now infuses dancehall with other sounds and I have all the producers I'm working with bring their interpretations of dancehall. The results have been incredible so far.
What are you listening to right now that might surprise people?
The Beatles? I've always had open ears for all kinds of music so im not sure what would suprise people...Calvin Harris? Konshens (dancehall artiste) is on fire right now...also i like FUSE ODG who opened for me recently in the UK.
Any more big collabs coming up off the album we can look out for?
We have a few big ones we will be announcing in the next couple months. Stay tuned!
When you watch this video you...
Start to twerk! Then hit the club. This is a party song.
