In The Voice article, SEAN PAUL said his new “commercial sound” doesn’t mark the end of his allegiance with reggae and dancehall.
He said: “It’s a very weird balancing act because you can’t p*** off the label but you can’t p*** off your fans. A lot of the time, you end up p*****g yourself off!”
[The Voice also ran an ‘In The Spotlight’ feature with UK dancehall artist GENERAL LEVY ahead of the Hot Wuk Festival.]
The Sun newspaper took a lighter approach to SEAN PAUL’s career and focused instead on the fact that he doesn't smoke weed anymore, but drinks it in tea.
He said: "I don't smoke any more. After 15, 16 years of smoking every day it was bad for my voice. I was having trouble breathing, man. Giving up has opened my chest out and made me able to sing better.
"I haven't smoked for two years now. I have a cup of tea every mornin' and I'm good for the day."
SEAN PAUL's latest studio album Tomahawk Technique is now available – tracks from the new record were also played on the March ReggaeChapter.com podcast, hosted by RICHIE BLOOD.
