Jamaican superstar Sean Paul is preparing to release his highly anticipated new album, Tomahawk Technique, in September of 2012. Continuing Sean's history of crafting hit records, the album is anchored by Sean's current smash single, "Got 2 Luv U" ft. Alexis Jordan, which has become a Top Ten hit in eight countries, reaching Number One in France and receiving Gold or Platinum status in five, as well as his most recent release, the infectious anthem, "She Doesn't Mind."
The collection will feature an appearance by Kelly Rowland as well as production from industry heavyweights like Benny Blanco (Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Wiz Khalifa, Ke$ha), Rico Love (Natasha Bedingfield, Nelly, Diddy, Usher) and Stargate (Rihanna, Ne-Yo, Chris Brown).
Tomahawk Technique showcases a modified direction for Sean, who challenged his new producers to submit their interpretations of a dancehall beat while keeping the global pop sound they are known for.
Tomahawk Technique is the next step in Sean's continual pop dominance and follows in the footsteps of his classic albums that also include the multi-platinum, Grammy-winning Dutty Rock, which featured his breakout hit "Gimme The Light" and the platinum smash The Trinity, which was highlighted by the Top 10 single "We Be Burnin'" and the #1 hit "Temperature." With an undeniable track record for crafting hit singles as a solo artist, including cuts like "Deport Them," "Like Glue," "Give It Up To Me" and "Get Busy," as well as a history of taking other artists' songs to the next level through tracks like Beyonce's "Baby Boy," Jay Sean's "Do You Remember" and Blue Cantrell's "Breathe," Sean Paul has established himself as one of the seminal pop voices of his generation.
Armed with a new look and an energized passion for music, the past year has produced a creative outburst from Sean, as his emergence as a producer, helming the track "Roll Wid Di Don" on Tomahawk Technique and working with artists like Cecile, Tami Chynn, Mr. Vegas, Wayne Marshall on his critically acclaimed Riddim album "Blaze Fia" and it's follow up "Material," has been matched by a stream of new music and collaborations with artists including Pitbull, T-Pain, Ludacris, Bob Sinclar, CongoRock, Mya and Kelly Rowland. After a brief hiatus from performing, Sean Paul came back onto the scene with an international summer tour visiting Portugal, Rome, Naples, Cape Verde, Ibiza, Germany, London (for the One Love Peace Festival), Bristol, South Cyprus and Canada. Never one to stay inactive, Sean will begin touring in support of the new album in December in the United States and Across Europe.
