Sean Paul is set to raise the temperature with his eighth full-length album titled “Scorcha.”
The multi-award-winning Billboard chart-topper has officially confirmed the release date of his Island Records debut for May 27, 2022.
In a Billboard interview on Wednesday (March 23), the Dancehall superstar enthusiastically explained what “Scorcha” is about.
“The album is called Scorcha because I'm a hot boy and I'm still fresh and I keep on doing my thing,” Sean Paul told the publication.
“I put out excellence, I'm not just doing this for a buck. There are times where I need to present an album and get some money from the label. [But] I'm doing this from the perspective of that euphoria that I want you to feel,” he added.

On “Scorcha” album artwork, Dutty Paul sports a clean-cut, which is a stark contrast to his Dutty Rock cornrow look, which Drake has been accused of copying.
In response to Drake's cornrow moment, Seal Paul told Billboard:
“I've always said different things about him, but this one is fun. Big up Drake.”
In a recent fan-made meme, the “Wants And Needs” singer was photoshopped onto Sean Paul's “The Trinity” album cover, and Drake couldn't deny the striking resemblance.
“Damn this is good,” Drake responded last week on Instagram.
Sean Paul's “Scorcha” is now available for pre-order on Apple Music and the iTunes Store.
