What would you do if Sean Paul was down to record your voicemail greeting message in his smooth stream of tongue-rolling patois? This particular scenario happened while we were on set with the long-standing king of dancehall. Someone who has been around since bucket hats were a thing the first time around, and has created songs that get stuck in our heads with every name in music worth knowing (we’ll spare the encyclopedia and only mention a few: Beyoncé, 2Chainz, Eve, Dua Lipa, Wiley, Idris Elba). His latest song with Cov-alum J Balvin (it’s stuck in this here writer’s head) is what brought us to the Mondrian rooftop for a speed round of Qs to get to know him a little bit better. Watch now!
