Sean Paul releases The Odyssey

Positive Vibe listeners have been treated to select tracks from the street album entitled, The Odyssey, profiling one of Jamaica’s most successful crossover dancehall artists, Sean Paul, scheduled to perform in Montreal in February.  Mixed by ace dj’s Coppershot Disco, the mixtape was made available for download and has found itself as far as Dubai and Ireland.  Featured on the mixtape are Jay Sean, Chris Brown, Sean Kingston, Chino, Farenheit, and Wayne Marshall.

Singles such as Do You Remember, Follow Me, Brown Skin Girl, and Buy You A Round are highlights of the lyrically-lethal hit-heavy tape, and Sean Paul comments that it was “wicked fun” putting the project together.

“From we started putting together the songs to put on the tape the vibe was just there.  And Coppershot Disco has the right touch for everything, and we just put it out there for the fans to enjoy and get up to date with the music.”

Some of the tracks on the mix tape are new material, which Sean Paul is equally excited about.

Sean Paul is the most successful Jamaican artiste on the international charts.  He’s had three Billboard #1 singles and five Billboard Hot 100 top ten tunes.  He has had more chart entries over three worldwide best-selling albums, which sold more than 11-million copies worldwide. 

In 2009, he copped the MOBO Award for Best Reggae Act, as well as the initial Best Reggae Artiste award at the Soul Train Awards; adding to those trophies a collection of Grammies, MTV Music Video Awards, Billboard Music Awards, American Music Awards, MTV Europe Music Awards, MOBO, BET Award and others.

Sean Paul received a Grammy nomination for his fourth album, Imperial Blaze, released in August 2009.  The album was entirely produced in Jamaica by producers Stephen Marley, son of reggae legend Freddie McGregor; Stephen McGregor aka The Genius, Donovan ‘Don Carleone’ Bennett,  Craig ‘Leftside’ Parks, Jason Henriques and Jeremy Harding, Sean Paul’s executive manager and former Montreal radio dj on McGill University’s CKUT FM.

Sean Paul continues to make history as the first Jamaican and Imperial Blaze the first dance hall album to top Billboard Rap Charts.  Billboard has named him the top reggae artiste of 2009, and the past decade, as well, listed his other two albums, Dutty Rock and The Trinity as top reggae albums of the decade as well.
