Primed for a massive sum­mer, multi-award-win­ning Bill­board chart top­per Sean Paul will heat up 2022 with his eighth full-length album and Island Records debut, Scorcha, on May 27. It is avail­able for pre-order­/pre-save HERE.

Bill­board exclus­ively broke the news of the record’s arrival today say­ing “Paul’s wave of dance­hall was not just about the music. It became a world­wide cul­tur­al move­ment, filled with unapo­lo­get­ic­ally Jamaic­an style, visu­als, dance moves and tra­di­tions.”

Addi­tion­ally, Sean Paul has unveiled a can­did behind-the-scenes vign­ette for the music video of the first single “How We Do It” [feat. Pia Mia].

“How We Do It” caught fire right out of the gate. It has already amassed just shy of 1 mil­lion Spo­ti­fy streams in addi­tion to gath­er­ing over 400K You­Tube views on the music video. PAPER premiered the visu­al and exclaimed, “Legendary dance­hall sing­er Sean Paul is back with pop star Pia Mia, just ahead of sum­mer, to provide their dance floor duet, ‘How We Do It,’ as a sexy explain­er detail­ing the many ways they like to, well, ‘do it’.” Mean­while, REVOLT hailed it as “per­fect for send­ing fans off in to the week­end ready for a good time.”

Most import­antly, it paves the way for more to come from Sean Paul with the impend­ing arrival of Scorcha.

Sean recently earned a GRAMMY nom­in­a­tion for Best Reg­gae Album for his 7th stu­dio album Live N Liv­in, which was released in 2021. The album is a col­lab­or­at­ive cel­eb­ra­tion of his Jamaic­an her­it­age and dance­hall roots in which Sean trades the mic with Buju Ban­ton and Dami­an Mar­ley. Dance­hall can be ste­reo­typed as a com­pet­it­ive, macho space where sound clashes are king, but Live N Liv­in set out to emphas­ize what’s pos­sible when unity is the goal. “We don’t need to divide our fans to attain the rota­tions on the air­waves or streams,” Sean says. “I hold this album very dear to my heart because it shows the effort of col­lab­or­a­tion over con­front­a­tion.”

He also announced 2022 U.S. Scorcha tour dates. Return­ing to the stage fol­low­ing two years since tour­ing due to the pan­dem­ic, he is eager and excited to recon­nect with his fans live and in per­son. See full tour rout­ing below. Fans can pur­chase tick­ets HERE.

Through­out his career, the inter­na­tion­al super­star has carved a home for him­self while cham­pi­on­ing dance­hall, as being an artist with a unique sound, look and pas­sion. His abil­ity to show the power and unity in music through vari­ous col­lab­or­a­tions, across many genres has cata­pul­ted his career over the years on vari­ous charts, awards and with an enorm­ous fan­base. Effect­ively Sean has brought that same concept back to his own genre and col­lab­or­ated with some of his col­leagues in reg­gae and dance­hall, high­light­ing that togeth­er we can also make great music.

Stay tuned for more from Sean Paul soon.
