The Gleaner reports on Jamaican singer Sean Paul’s collaboration with The Saturdays on hit song “What about Us,” which topped the iTunes United Kingdom (UK) chart last week. The Jamaican singer is featured chanting on the UK-based girl group’s first number-one single. The article also stresses his many other collaborations. See excerpts here:
The success of What About Us earned Sean Paul a slot on the edgy Allan Carr Show in London on Wednesday. The television series has featured high-profile celebrities, including actor Samuel L. Jackson, the Black Eyed Peas, Bette Midler, and Australian cricketer Shane Warne. Jessica Sager, writing for the PopCrush website, had high praise for Sean Paul’s work on the dance number.
The multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning toaster has stepped out on a number of hit tracks, including the blockbuster hit, Baby Boy, by Beyoncé. The artiste seems to have a penchant for collaborating successfully with the ladies of pop, having teamed up with Estelle, Kelly Rowland, Blu Chantrelle, Alexis Jordan, and Joss Stone. Locally, he has tracks with Ce’Cile and Tami Chynn. Interestingly, Sean Paul also teamed up with another artiste, who seems to do well with cross-gender collaborations. Beenie Man and Sean Paul recently released Greatest Gallis just ahead of the latter’s preparation to hit the road in April to support his fifth studio album, Tomahawk Technique.
