 Multi-award-winning Billboard chart topper Sean Paul is heating up 2022 with his eighth full-length album “Scorcha,” which is out now via Island Records.

“The 16-track album sees the global icon serving up his classic infectious sound and party-starting rhythms just in time for the summer,” Ronnie Tomlinson, the Jamaican-born chief executive office of Destine Media, a New York-based entertainment publicity company, told Caribbean Life over the weekend.

In traditional Sean Paul fashion, the album boasts features from legendary artists across genres including focus track “Light My Fire”, featuring Gwen Stefani and Shenseea.

“The unexpected pairing of vocals from pop icon Gwen Stefani and Jamaican dancehall stronghold Shenseea is a testament to Paul’s supreme ability to produce global hits,” Brooklyn resident Tomlinson said. “Complete with an unshakable chorus that hears Stefani sing ‘baby won’t you light my fire,’ ‘Light My Fire’ is primed to be this summer’s biggest anthem.”

The new album also includes previously released songs “Scorcha,” “Only Fanz” (ft. Ty Dolla Sign), “Dynamite” (ft. Sia), “How We Do It” (ft. Pia Mia), and “No Fear” (ft. Damian Marley & Nicky Jam). 

“While Scorcha promises to get you dancing, Sean takes his music to new depths on this project by exploring personal topics such as infidelity, stress and fear on tracks like ‘Borrowed Time’ and ‘Good Day’,” Tomlinson said.

She said Sean’s next stop on the 2022 US Scorcha tour is a special album release performance at The Novo in Los Angeles before he hits the road in the United Kingdom, Europe and Canada this summer.

Tomlinson said Sean is also set to join Pitbull this fall for the 2022 “Can’t Stop Us Now” tour. 

“Returning to the stage following two years since touring, due to the pandemic, he is eager and excited to reconnect with his fans live and in person,” Tomlinson said.
