While Bob Marley remains the most famous Jamaican artist, in terms of record sales, Sean Paul has surpassed the Rasta; maybe that is a testament that today’s youths prefer happy dance music over deep thinking and soul searching music.

Sean Paul earned his third number one in the United Kingdom last week with British electronic group Clean Bandit’s Rockabye, which also features singer Ann Marie.

Sean Paul who recently signed to Island Records has scored 12 Top 10 hits to date. Even more impressive, the Jamaican has been credited on 28 songs which have made the Top 40.

Sean Paul has done collaborations with the who of who in music including Beyonce, Beenie Man, Akon, DMX and Mr. Vegas.
