Sean Paul x J Balvin – Contra La Pared [Download promotional DJ Pack]
Grammy award winning Dancehall legend, Sean Paul, one of the best loved and most consistent hit makers in pop music, teams up with Latin superstar J Balvin for the release of his new Island single “Contra La Pared” (Against The Wall). The new single follows Sean’s recent David Guetta produced hit “Mad Love”, the Jhene Aiko collaboration “Naked Truth” and recent Steff London banger “Shot & Wine”. Balvin, described by Billboard as “the biggest breakout act Latin music has seen in many years” boasts a very distinctive style that pays homage to the first-wave of Reggaeton stars. His infectious anthem “Mi Gente” was the first-ever all-Spanish language song to reach #1 on Spotify’s Global Chart and landed him a hot remix with Beyoncé which then lead to the Colombian superstar joining Beyonce onstage at Coachella 2018.
One of the most instantly recognisable voices in music, Sean has been responsible for an unbroken string of massive hit singles in the last 2 years, including Body featuring Migos, the worldwide hit No Lie featuring Dua Lipa. Clean Bandit’s Rockabye, which spent nine weeks at number one in the UK charts and, of course, his Grammy nominated Number 1 Billboard, global smash with Sia Cheap Thrills. It’s fair to say that Sean has rarely been away from the higher reaches of the charts and indeed last year he was presented with a disc from the Recording Industry of America (RIAA) for selling a staggering 26 million records.
In 2002 “Dutty Rock” (fuelled by the massive hit singles “Gimme The Light“ and “Get Busy”) went double Platinum in US & UK while 2006’s “Temperature” reached x4 Platinum in US with sales of over 4m. Over the span of his career, Sean Paul has worked with some of the world’s biggest artists including Beyonce, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Busta Rhymes, Sia, Kelly Rowland, Enrique Iglesias and 2Chainz, and has also partnered with reggae and dancehall acts such as Damian ‘Junior Gong’ Marley, Chi Chi Ching, Mr. Vegas, Beenie Man, Ding Dong, Future Fambo, and Tami Chynn. Aside from being a top-notch performer, Sean Paul is a much sought after music producer and has created music with a number of top Jamaican artistes.
