International Dancehall superstar, Sean Paul is in the process of creating chart history as he received his fifth # 1 Reggae album debut on the Billboard Reggae charts for his sixth studio album Full Frequency.

On Tuesday, February 18, Sean Paul released Full Frequency on Atlantic/VP Records, anchored by lead singles Want Dem All Ft. Konshens and Riot ft. Damian Marley, which is currently the #1 song on the Jamaica Music Countdown chart. The project also debuted as the #1 album in Japan while charting high in multiple territories including top 5 in Mexico. In anticipation of the release, Sean embarked on a US promo tour including a performance on the Arsenio Hall Show.

Sean Paul is the first Jamaican artiste to have an album cover with an interactive app. This free app allows fans to access music, videos, tour dates and interact with the artiste through his social media sites. Full Frequency through the Layar app allows fans to scan the album artwork with their android or IOS device and experience Sean Paul content popping out on their screens.
Manager for Sean Paul, Steve Wilson states that, “Sean Paul is the only Jamaican I know thus far and one of the few international artistes that has ever incorporated an interactive component to their album cover.” Artistes that have added an interactive app to their projects include, Jay Z, Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber.
Sean Paul's Full Frequency album’s Augmented Reality feature was designed and developed by Jamaican born Kai Williams and Khaliq King of Zipteq. “We decided to use Layar as the platform for the interactivity of Sean Paul’s album because of its reach. Sean Paul’s fans spread across the globe and Layar boasts the largest #1 download of an AR app world,” stated Kai Williams.
“Our vision was to create a dynamic portal, one with ‘moving parts’ to keep the fans engaged. We wanted it to still look and feel like the album cover but have it come to life,” Williams explained.
Full Frequency is the next step in Sean’s continual Dancehall/Pop dominance and joins a wave of classic albums that includes the multi-platinum, Grammy-winning classic Dutty Rock and the platinum smash The Trinity, alongside Stage One, Imperial Blaze and Tomahawk Technique. With an undeniable track record for crafting hit singles as a solo artiste, including cuts like Get Busy, Gimme The Light, Like Glue, We Be Burnin’ and Temperature, as well as a history of taking other artiste’s songs to the next level through tracks like Beyonce’s Baby Boy, Jay Sean’s Do You Remember and Eve’s Give It To You, Sean Paul has established himself as one of the seminal Dancehall voices of his generation. These successes have earned him a plethora of awards including the 2006 American Music Award for Favorite Pop/Rock Male Artiste.
