Sean Paul has worked with a slew of local and international female artists, however, one person, who he certainly wants to work with, is yet to make the cut.
The Grammy Award-winning entertainer, who has recorded hit singles with Beyonce, Rihanna, Keyshia Cole, Lady Saw, Little Mix, Blu Cantrell, Sasha, Estelle and Ce’Cile, shared last year that Alicia Keys is the person he would most like to collaborate with on a song in the future.
Apparently, Sean Paul’s dream collaboration with Alicia Keys may finally be coming true.
During a recent interview on New York’s Hot97, the Jamaican musician disclosed that talks had commenced and the song will be ready soon.
“I just got word from Swizz and Alicia that they have a song for me. It’s coming in, so big them up. I’ve heard the tune, its a reggae, one drop vibe and I can’t wait to hit it up and get into the studio with them. That’s how they wanna work and I love that vibe too,” he told hosts Laura Stylez and Rosenberg.
This will not be the first time Alicia Keys is collaborating with a Jamaica artist. In 2006, the “Girl on Fire” singer hooked up with deejay Cham for the remix of his hit, “Ghetto Story.” They also shot the video for the song at various Corporate Area locations including Cham’s childhood community of Sherlock Crescent in the Duhaney Park area of Kingston 20.
Sean Paul recently released a new single, “Boasty,” with Idris Elba, Stefflon Don, and Wiley. During the interview, he revealed that he was excited to work with the “The Dark Tower” actor despite being clueless he could spit lyrics as he did on the track. Sean Paul is also preparing his next album under Island Records, which due sometime this year.
