Grammy-winning recording artiste, Sean Paul is back in the Billboard spotlight in a big way as the prominent singjay is on top of the magazine’s Hot 100 chart for the first time since 2006.
Sean Paul’s feature on the remix of Cheap Thrills by Australian singer, Sia has earned him the honour as the track dethroned Drake’s One Dance alongside Wiz Kid and Kayla at the top of the chart.
This marks the fourth time Sean Paul has topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart. He first topped the charts in 2003 with Baby Boy (alongside Beyonce) and Get Busy while doing the same in 2006 with Temperature.
It also marks the second time in just over a year that a Jamaican artiste has topped Billboard’s Hot 100 chart as OMI achieved the same feat last July, starting a run of six non-consecutive weeks at the apex.
This achievement for Sean Paul comes on the heels of landing a new recording contract with Island Records.
