Sean Paul, the multi-award-winning and Billboard chart-topping international recording artist, has been nominated for Best Reggae Album at the 64th annual GRAMMY Awards. The ceremony will take place on January 31st, 2022 on the CBS Television Network. Furthermore, this comes as a huge achievement as his seventh studio album, ‘Live N Livin‘ album is the first to be released on his own Dutty Rock Productions label. With the vision and undertone of ‘collaboration over confrontation.’

Sean Paul Is ‘Live N Livin’

For Sean Paul, Live N Livin is a collaborative celebration of his Jamaican heritage and dancehall roots. Sean trades the mic with some of his favorite Reggae and Dancehall artists, including Buju Banton, Damian Marley, Mavado, and Stonebwoy from Ghana, to name a few. In fact, Dancehall is often stereotyped as a competitive, macho culture where sound clashes reign supreme, but Live N Livin is meant to highlight what is possible when unity is the goal. When reflecting on the inspiration behind the album, Sean says, 

We don’t need to divide our fans to attain the rotations on the airwaves or streams. I hold this album very dear to my heart because it shows the effort of collaboration over confrontation.”

Additionally, this news serves as Sean’s 9th GRAMMY nomination and his 6th for “Best Reggae Album”. It’s followed by another honor, as the multiple Billboard 100 chart topping artist was nominated for Best Reggae Act in 2021 by the UK MOBO. Moreover, the prestigious MOBO Awards are an annual music award ceremony that recognizes achievements in black music, including hip hop, grime, soul, reggae, jazz, gospel, and African music.

This GRAMMY nomination is a special one, “Live N Livin” is a very special project to me. It’s a return to hardcore dancehall. Everyone I worked with from my engineers to the producers to the artists, even the person who did the artwork is Jamaican and one artist from Ghana. It was really a collaborative effort and I’m proud of the recognition we all received. With this album I wanted to show my genre that we need to do more collaborative work and less confrontation
