‘LIVE N LIVIN’ HIGHLIGHTING COLLABORATION OVER CONFRONTATION
“Dancehall is alive and well. Check the pulse. This album is one I hold very dear to my heart for many reasons. It’s the first album of mine being released off my own label, Dutty Rock Productions, and a body of work which has allowed me to work so closely with artists I revere in my genre.”
Grammy® Award-winning global megastar, philanthropist, Sean Paul release his seventh studio album – LIVE N LIVIN – arriving on all platforms March 12th. LIVE N LIVIN is produced by Dutty Rock Productions and distributed by ONErpm.
LIVE N LIVIN is now available HERE
LIVE N LIVIN features some of reggae and dancehall powerhouses the likes of Buju Banton, Damian “Jr Gong” Marley, Agent Sasco, Mavado and newcomers such as Govana, Chi Ching Ching, Intence, and several other artists that play a pivotal role and whose sound remains a cornerstone of the genre. With a collection of traditional and fresh sound of dancehall Live N Livin captures the essence of dancehall and the unity, which exists within the culture.
Dancehall has recorded tremendous success over the years, with amazing fusion offered by the likes of Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Sam Smith, and genres like Reggaeton and Afro Beats. The genre has continued to impact the world and Sean Paul aims to highlight the significance of dancehall while collaborating with different talented artists.
The 16-track album was produced with a collaboration over confrontation undertone, 15 collabs and one single from Sean Paul. In the midst of this great body of work highlighting dancehall from Jamaica, Ghanian dancehall artist Stonebwoy is also featured on the album on “Guns of Navarone” remix.
“Stonebwoy, very talented artist from Ghana who always pay homage to the dancehall genre, and visits the island of Jamaica. It was clear to me when he stated he wanted to be a part of this project I could not say no” says Sean Paul.
“Live N Livin is loaded with collaborations demonstrating to the world the versatility and excellency of Jamaican dancehall music. And most important, it demonstrates that unity can be achieved. Sean Paul could easily leaned back and collect, but he chose to fight for the genre he loves and address important issues that have stopped dancehall from reaching the top – where it belongs” Riddim Magazine (Ellen Kohlings & Pete Lilly)
With over one year at home, due to the pandemic, like many artists, Sean Paul has been unable to hit the stage and tour vigorously as he is used to. Using his time to record two albums, ‘Live N Livin’ & ‘Scorcha’ Sean Paul has partnered with Dreamstage and is set to perform virtually for his fans Live from Jamaica. Fans are in luck as they will “get to teleport to the Caribbean for feel-good music through Dreamstage’s superior hi-def visual virtual concert stage that brings dancehall ambassador Sean Paul and surprise musical guests into homes where fans can dance like no one’s watching in unison with others. He will perform live from the sandy beaches of Jamaica on Saturday, April 10 at 4:00pm EST.”

As we approach this shift in time, in ages, in the consciousness of man, many things can be said but who is really listening? So much trouble in our world, yet are we aware? The battle lines have been drawn and it’s simple. Good vs. evil.
I am not here to tell you the side you should be on, rather my offering of music is meant to guide, inspire, uplift, educate and eradicate negativity from the minds of the masses.
We, who have been the political football of many, the economic underdog nations, say no! No more to this upside down system. This one sided view of justice and all the other issues affecting us as a people.
While I seek to highlight the systemic problems around the world, I am aware of the need of preserving dancehall culture along with the real essence that reggae music offers but these are not normal times so things cannot continue as normal.
We are the change we seek and it’s our time to cement this thought in the minds of our youth. To open their eyes, thus enabling future generations to continue on a firm path and solid foundation with music doing it’s job as the great healer, teacher, comforter and above all, the restorative force that propels human beings to higher heights.
My gift from Jah to you. Let’s get this UPSIDE DOWN 2020 world right side up.
“Blessed” is a powerful, urgent and passionate song which will resonate in the hearts and minds of many as a reminder of hope. “We must find the light, even in these dark times” says Buju Banton. It follows another album track, “Memories,” an instant Buju Banton classic that features the incomparable John Legend.
