Sean Paul’s Two Decade Old Song Features On Stone Cold Album

Mark ‘Stone Cold’ Hudson revived a near two decades old Sean Paul song for his compilation album Tropical House Cruises to Jamaica.

Stone Cold released the project recently and debut at No. 2 on the Billboard reggae chart. He produced the single “Regular Thing” for Sean Paul in 2001 and while the track didn’t became a massive hit like other songs from SP during the ER. Seventeen years later the song gets picked up for a new album and started to do very well among reggae/dancehall fans.

“The Sean Paul song is back in rotation and is one of the leading songs getting airplay from the project. The sound that Sean Paul had back then is what is becoming popular again,” Stone Cold said. “The beat was created by Jam2 and we recorded the song at Black Scorpio studio. As a label we always try to work with young artistes and explore new sounds.”

The compilation album comes with 15 tracks with guest features from the likes of Ed Sheeran, Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley, Stephen Marley, Safaree, Sean Kingston, Chronixx, Sizzla, Vybz Kartel, Wyclef Jean and more.

Alkaline, Popcaan, Aidonia Leads 2018 Your View Awards Nominees

Alkaline, Popcaan, and Aidonia leads the 2018 Your View Awards nominees.

The YVA has rebranded this year to Your View Award and the producers are promising a bigger and better show set for February 24. The Your View Award is already stirring up some controversies with a major snub to Vybz Kartel due to some changes in the eligibility rules. Alkaline lead the list of nominees this year with six nods including Hottest Summer Song (Red Eye), Favorite Local and International artist, and other categorgies like Chart Topper and Collaboration.

Popcaan and Aidonia each have four nominations including nods in some of the same categories as Alkaline which means that the three of them are going head to head against each other for some of the most coveted trophies. Several other local acts who have done well in dancehall and reggae over the past year have received nominations including Spice, Shenseea, Mavado, Chronixx, Sean Paul, and more.

There are some rules for some categories in case you’re wondering why some artists didn’t get included for new categories like Album of the Year and Music Video Concept. “The YVA defines an album as having no less than five different tracks,” the Your View Awards said in a statement. “Sampler albums or albums which are compilation of tracks from other previously released albums are not eligible.”

Sean Paul Shot Down Rumors He Caused Popcaan and Chi Ching Ching Feud

Sean Paul is making it clear that he is behind Popcaan and Chi Ching Ching feud.

The Hotskull deejay signed Ching to his Unruly label in 2015 after the two developed a close friendship. This year their friendship turned sour and we started seeing the “Roast or Fry (Breadfruit)” deejay on tour around the world with Sean Paul. Some dancehall fans think that SP is behind the falling out, but now the dancehall legend is setting the record straight.

Sean Paul said he went through the proper channel to get Chi Ching Ching on his tour and there is no bad blood between himself and the Unruly camp. “His manager is Squidel which is Popcaan brother,” SP said. “So basically I had to talk to them… when me and Ching just a reason about it and I said who book for you because we want to bring you on these shows and we went through the process and find out and then we have meetings with everybody. It wasn’t a big public thing, we just said yow let us do this.”

Sean Paul added that Chi Ching Ching brought a lot of energy to his tour and he likes that. He also made it clear that he has nothing against Popcaan. “I personally have met Popcaan one or two times and I have nothing against the youth,” he added. “I don’t suppose he has anything against me, this is just a thing where his career is in that direction.”

SP added that at this point in his career he is only looking to help younger artists like Ching elevate their careers on the global stage. Sean Paul has over two decades in dancehall under his belt and has been widely regarded internationally as the king of the genre.

Fans Crown Vybz Kartel The King of Dancehall

Is Vybz Kartel the king of dancehall?

Fans of the genre have been debating for the past few weeks about who is the king of dancehall music after crowning Spice the new queen. Beenie Man and Spice butt heads last month over whether or not she is the new dancehall queen since Lady Saw hang up her mic. According to Beenie, the “So Mi Like It” deejay is more of a self appointed designated queen and then she shot back accusing him of doing the same thing.

Spice accused the Doc of being a self-proclaim king while referring to Kartel as the true heir to the throne. Dancehall HipHop conducting a poll on social media where we asked fans who is the king of of Jamaica’s dominant music culture. Approximately 71 percent of respondents chooses Vybz Kartel over Beenie Man as the current king of dancehall.

“Right now I think Spice and Vybz Kartel are the queen and king of dancehall, I have ratings for Beenie Man, but right now Kartel is the man even from behind bars,” one fan told us. “There is no debating that the Worl’Boss achieved a height in dancehall that Beenie never did and even in prison the man is still running the game.”

“Beenie Man was the king but his rein has come to an end its Vybz Kartel who is the true king now,” another fan added. “Beenie should retire now just like Lady Saw and let Kartel take the title. Nothing wrong with these old heads stepping aside making way for the new generation to run the business.”

Despite the enthusiasm of some dancehall fans, there are still some folks who thinks that Beenie is still at the helm of dancehall. “Beenie is still the king but Kartel is seriously a strong contender for the title, but it’s foolish to think the either is the king right now when Sean Paul achieved so much for the music,” one fan said.

Vybz Kartel, who is currently serving life in prison, released an album last year titled King of the Dancehall. The pro

Over the past two years Sean Paul has further cemented his place in dancehall as one of the greatest of all time. Last year he scored a Billboard Hot 100 number one single with Sia on “Cheap Thrills.” That same year he scored a number of big hits and the momentum continues into this year.

Sean Paul is currently working on a new album due early next year. This will be his first project under his new deal with Island Records.

Popcaan Confirmed Fallout With Unruly Member Chi Ching Ching

Popcaan confirmed reports that he and Unruly member Chi Ching Ching had a falling out.

There have been rumors floating around for months claiming that Popcaan and Chi Ching Ching are beefing. In 2015, Popcaan signed Ching to his Unruly label and the two developed a close friendship since then. But this year the two were noticeably distant with Chi Ching Ching touring extensively with Sean Paul overseas prompting speculations that they had a falling out.

Last weekend, one of Popcaan’s right hand men, Petro Unruly posted a photo on Instagram and captioned it “#CrazyCrazy #Outside.” Chi Ching Ching commented on the photo with a simpe tick emoji and it seems Popcaan wasn’t too happy about that and had this to say, “[Petro Unruly] tell some wanna be unruly don’t nuff up ina real unruly business.”

While Popcaan didn’t name Chi Ching Ching directedly in his comment, he did make it exactly after the “Roast or Fry (Breadfruit)” deejay. Back in July, Ching posted a pic of himself and Popcaan on his Instagram wishing the Unruly boss a happy birthday and that quelled the talks of a fallout for at least a short while, but now we know that there are some real trouble inside the Unruly camp. On a side note, Poppy also unfollow Ching on Instagram, petty.

Sean Paul To Upcoming Dancehall Acts “Work Hard Be Unique”

Sean Paul has sold over 26 million records in the United States and just recently the dancehall star was award with a plaque from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for the achievement.

Additionally, he also received platinum plaques for his dancehall classics “Get Busy,” “We Be Burning,” and “Temperature” which was certified three times platinum. The achievement makes Sean Paul only one of six Jamaican artists to get platinum status in the United States. When asked about his formula for success for young acts, he said hard work, follow your heart and be unique.

“Just follow your heart and that’s what art is really about,” he said. “It’s about following your heart and creating beautiful things that maybe other people didn’t see or think of before. I’m very proud of the way that I’ve performed and that I’m able to present our music to a wider audience, and 26 million sales represent to me dedication over the years. It means also fans’ involvement. Without their support, I couldn’t be here. I just have to big dem up.”

Sean Paul is one of the most commercially successful dancehall artists out of Jamaica ever, and some international publications even call him the king of dancehall. A lot of Jamaican dancehall fans will disagree, but if we should base the kingship solely on international impact and music sales, then SP would easily sit on the thrown. But that debate is for another time. In the meantime, let’s congratulate Dutty Paul on his phenomenal achievement, for a job well done, and for representing dancehall and Jamaican music culture at the highest level.

Sean Paul Gets Plaque For Selling 26 Million Records

Sean Paul received a plaque from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for selling over 26 million records.

The “Cheap Thrills” deejay is one of the most commercially successful artists in dancehall history and last month he again reminded his comrades at home in Jamaica and his fans globally why he will go down in history as one of the greatest. Sean Paul also received platinum plaques for his 2003 mega-hit single “Get Busy” and his 2005 chart-topper “We Be Burning.” He also received a plaque for his single “Temperature” which has been certified three times platinum. Overall, SP has sold over 26 million records over his career.

Aside from Sean Paul, only five other Jamaican artists have platinum certification in the United States, they are Shaggy, OMI, Damian ‘Jr Gong’ Marley, Cherine Anderson, and Ini Kamoze. Sean Paul was the biggest comeback story in music last year when he earned a Billboard Hot 100 single with “Cheap Thrills” with Sia. He also scored another Billboard hit this year with “Rockabye.”

Sean Paul recently signed a new deal with Island Records and is currently working on his new album while he toured with fellow dancehall star Chi Ching Ching.

Listen Sean Paul & Masicka Song “High Yes (Remix)”

Sean Paul and Masicka team up for the “High Yes (Remix).”

The ganja anthem was produced by ZJ Liquid and features the two dancehall stars trading bars about smoking the highest grade. “Life too short fi mi worry bout war with no boy / From life there mi can enjoy / Give me the trees give me the surplus supply / Because mi well want fi fly high up in a the sky high,” Sean Paul deejay over the dancehall beat.

Both Sean Paul and Masicka are having huge success in dancehall this year. SP has been riding a wave of resurgence in the genre for the last two years and even scoring a Billboard number one single last year with his feature on “Cheap Thrills” with Sia. Masicka also score a few notable hits this year including a track with Vybz Kartel, “InfraRed.”

Alkaline Tops Vybz Kartel On YouTube

Alkaline stays ahead of Vybz Kartel on YouTube with his Vevo channel reaching a milestone 500,000 subscribers.

The two rival deejays fans have been battling each other on the airwaves and on social media over which one of them is currently the leading act in dancehall. In comparison Kartel currently has 364,000 subscribers on his Vevo channel. Sean Paul is currently the leading dancehall artists on YouTube with 700,000+ subscribers. Shaggy has just over 500,000 fans and Spice has slightly more than Vybz Kartel coming in at 384,000. Those round out the top five.

Vendetta and Gazanation fans are the rival factions in this bunch and will surely reference this piece of news during their heated debate on which artist is currently leading. So far it seems like Alkaline is winning on YouTube, but who is winning on the airwaves? This month alone, Vybz Kartel released six new singles, as well as a new music video and so far all of them, are hit-worthy.

In February this year, Vybz Kartel bagged five Youth View Awards while Alkaline walked away with three prompting some Vendetta fans to call out the YVA on social media. Gaza fans were happy with the results at that time and labeled Alkaline fans as sore losers.
