The Jamaica Observer writes that dancehall superstar Sean Paul is “in the process of creating chart history.” The singer received his fifth # 1 Reggae album debut on the Billboard Reggae charts for his sixth studio album, Full Frequency.
On Tuesday, February 18, Sean Paul released Full Frequency on Atlantic/VP Records, anchored by lead singles ‘Want Dem All’ featuring Konshens and ‘Riot’ featuring Damian Marley, which is currently the #1 song on the Jamaica Music Countdown chart. The project also debuted as the #1 album in Japan while charting high in multiple territories including top 5 in Mexico.
In anticipation of the release, Headline Entertainment said Sean Paul embarked on a US promotional tour including an appearance on the Arsenio Hall Show.
Headline Entertainment said that Sean Paul is the first Jamaican artiste to have an album cover with an interactive app which is free and allows fans to access music, videos, tour dates, and interact with the artiste through his social media sites.
Full Frequency, through the Layar app, allows fans to scan the album artwork with their android or IOS device and experience Sean Paul content popping up on their screens. Other artistes that have added an interactive app to their projects include, Jay Z, Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber, Headline Entertainment said.
Sean Paul’s Full Frequency album’s Augmented Reality feature was designed and developed by Jamaican-born Kai Williams and Khaliq King of Zipteq.
