Dancehall legend, Grammy Award winner and much loved hit maker extraordinaire Sean Paul who recently spent 9 weeks at no.1 in the UK charts on Clean Bandit’s “Rockabye”, drops his brand new banger “Body”. The single features superstar Atlanta trio Migos whose single “Bad And Boujee” became an internet phenomenon earlier this year spawning a gazillion memes before hitting the no. 1 spot on the Billboard chart. Migos joined Sean in Miami earlier this month to shoot a, soon to be premiered, new video for the single. Speaking of the collaboration Sean says “Migos is one of my favorite rap groups right now. I love how all three of them have different styles and it was wicked to have them flow over a dancehall-oriented track. Shooting outside in Miami is always a great way to gauge people's reactions to a song and it was hype!".
“Body” follows Sean’s recent singles “No Lies” feat. Dua Lipa and “‘Tek Weh Yuh Heart” feat. hip hop star Tory Lanez as well as the Jamaican legend’s standout collaboration with Clean Bandit which followed his Grammy nominated global smash with Sia on ‘Cheap Thrills’ which hit number 1 on the Billboard and no. 2 on the UK charts.
