A surprise for sure, but we’ll take it.
Oscar-nominated actor Jake Gyllenhaal was on BBC Radio One’s “Unpopular Opinions,” where he brought up an “unpopular opinion” he possesses that may not be too unpopular depending on who you’re speaking to.
“Sean Paul makes every song better,” he said. Gyllenhaal’s Spider-Man co-star Tom Holland was also a guest on the episode, and agreed, affirming that the Jamaican superstar is a “genius.”
“Hang up on him!” he says to the caller who calls the “Temperature” artist “overrated.” “Sean Paul makes every song better he’s in. There’s not a song he’s on, a remix he’s on, that he’s not good.”
The host of the show, Greg James, plays a bevy of Sean Paul songs and features, such as his breakout hit “Get Busy,” his feature in Clean Bandit’s “Rockabye,” and his feature in Sia’s “Cheap Thrills,” per Gyllenhaal’s request.
“There’s not a moment when he’s on the radio where you’re like ‘c’mon,’” he continues. “He makes driving fun… That is an UN-popular opinion.”
Sean Paul has been keeping busy these days. He was featured on the song “Boasty” featuring Wiley, Stefflon Don and Idris Elba, and worked on the song “Naked Truth” with Jhene Aiko in 2018.
