Sean Paul becomes first Jamaican artiste to reach 100 million views on YouTube

Though prominent Dancehall/Reggae superstar, Sean Paul may not be reaping the rewards he hoped for in the United States regarding his latest album, the entertainer has scored a major milestone through the North American country’s biggest video-sharing outlet.

The official video for Got 2 Luv U, the chart-topping single from Sean Paul and American pop princess, Alexis Jordan has clipped the 100 million views mark on YouTube, via Atlantic Records’ official channel. This makes Sean Paul the first Jamaican artiste to reach such a milestone with one single as the lead track off his new album, Tomahawk Technique has struck a chord with his fans in around the world, particularly in the United States and Europe, since its release in September 2011.

Sean Paul’s nine figure achievement blows away his Jamaican compatriots as Reggae legend, Bob Marley (No Woman No Cry, One Love) and Dancehall megastar, Shaggy (Angel) are the only other artistes from the island to top 50 million views with one song.

Tomahawk Technique returns poor sales figures in the U.S.

Despite a pair of smash hits featuring prominent American singers, Alexis Jordan and Kelly Rowland, Dancehall/Reggae superstar, Sean Paul has struggled to connect with the United States market through his fifth studio album, Tomahawk Technique.

With the United States having proven a more than reliable outlet for Sean Paul to sell his past records, Tomahawk Technique has reportedly experienced very low sales since its debut in the U.S. two weeks ago. According to prominent sales tracking system, the Nielsen Soundscan, Tomahawk Technique only managed to sell over 1,200 in its opening week, a far cry from the success his previous four compilations garnered in the North American country.

Despite holding fourth spot on the U.S. Billboard Reggae Album Charts, Tomahawk Technique has yet to appear on any other of Billboard Magazine’s major charts.

After debuting in 2000 with his highly-acclaimed album, Stage One, Sean Paul scored high-profile success in the United States with his sophomore effort, Dutty Rock, which sold over two million copies in the country and won him the Best Reggae Album Grammy Award two years later.

Sean Paul’s third compilation, The Trinity copped 107,000 album sales in its first week, the highest return by a Jamaican artiste in the U.S. Additionally, the album scored a top ten spot on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart.

Imperial Blaze, Sean Paul’s fourth album, didn’t enjoy as much success as its predecessors, but like Tomahawk Technique, was a hit in Europe, charting in Germany and France while enjoying success in other regions such as Japan and Canada.

Sean Paul’s collaboration with Alexis Jordan (Got 2 Luv U) and another smash off Tomahawk Technique, She Doesn’t Mind topped the charts in Switzerland and scored top ten spots on several European charts.

Last weekend, Sean Paul released the visuals for his third single off Tomahawk Technique entitled, How Deep Is Your Love, featuring the aforementioned Kelly Rowland.

According to Sean Paul, Tomahawk Technique should connect with an American fan base that has strongly supported his previous four efforts, Stage One, Dutty Rock (Best Reggae Album – 2004 Grammys), The Trinity and Imperial Blaze.

“I took a different approach on this album in every way,” Sean Paul said via press release.

“I worked with a lot of pop producers and challenged them to make their interpretation of a dancehall beat while also collaborating with some artistes I’ve always admired but never had the chance to work with. The reaction to the album so far has been incredible but I am excited for it to come out in the States and to be able to support it with a great tour.”

Tomahawk Technique features the smash hit, Got 2 Luv U (featuring Alexis Jordan), which has topped charts across the Caribbean and Europe and How Deep Is Your Love alongside former Destiny’s Child singer, Kelly Rowland.
