Jamaican superstar revealed he has teamed up with the Colombian pop sensation on a new song titled “Mad Love.”
“I got something kind of more poppy coming in a little while, with Shakira,” Sean Paul told Capital FM.
“The song’s called ‘Mad Love’, it’s about being mad and having love, it’s more sexy. It’s not about love, it’s the sexiness,” he added.
Sean also revealed that it is a “dream come true” to work with the ‘Hips Don’t Lie’ singer as they have been wanting to work together for a while.
“We’ve always wanted to work together, and I was like, ‘Yo, I’ve always wanted to work with you!’ She was like, ‘I’ve always wanted to work with you too!” Paul said.
“And I was like, ‘No, I’ve always been told that you’re busy.’ And she’s like, ‘I’ve always been told that you’re busy!’ It’s a dream come true for me, I’ve been wanting to work with her [for a while],” he added.
“Mad Love” is produced by French DJ, record producer, remixer, and songwriter David Guetta, the man behind mega hits such as 2013’s When Love Takes Over by Kelly Rowland.
Over the years, Sean Paul has delivered some memorable collaborations with female acts.
Among the stand-out duets are “Baby Boy” with Beyonce, “Breathe,” featuring Blu Cantrell; “Come Over” with Estelle, “I’m Still in Love” with Sasha, “How Deep is Your Love” with Kelly Rowland, and the current hit “Rockabye” featuring British electronic music group Clean Bandit and vocalist Anne-Marie.
