Sean Paul Sets New Release
"So Fine," the album's first single, is looking like another massive hit for the Grammy-winning Jamaican superstar. The track – produced by Stephen "Di Genius" McGregor – is currently a top 20 favorite at Rhythmic radio outlets nationwide, while also scoring top 40 spins at CHR/Top 40. In addition, the track's companion video – directed by Ray Kay (Lady Gaga, The-Dream) – has been added into rotation at MTV2, MTV Jams, and mtvU, with further spins on both MTV and BET.

In addition, he recently taped an exclusive installment of A&E's Private-Sessions, slated to air August 23rd.
Furthermore, Sean's upcoming television performances include The Wendy Williams Show, MTV's Alex Chung, and BET's 106th and Park.
