Grammy Award-winning global megastar, philanthropist, Sean Paul last Thursday released his seventh studio album, “Live N Livin,” arriving on all platforms the next day.

“Live N Livin is produced by Dutty Rock Productions and distributed by ONErpm.

The album features some of reggae and dancehall powerhouses, such as Buju Banton, Damian “Jr Gong” Marley, Agent Sasco and Mavado, and newcomers Govana and Chi Ching Ching.

“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,” said Brooklyn-based Jamaican publicist Ronnie Tomlinson, of Destine Media.

She said 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,” Tomlinson said.

“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,” Sean Paul said. “I could not say no” says Sean Paul.”

With over one year at home, due to the pandemic, Tomlinson said, 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’ and ‘Scorcha’ Sean Paul has partnered with Dreamstage, and is set to perform virtually for his fans Live from Jamaica,” she said. “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,” Tomlinson said.

She said Sean Paul will “perform live from the sandy beaches of Jamaica on Saturday, April 10 at 4:00 pm EST.”
