LISTEN UP: Vibin’ to the latest tunes from Sean Paul + Denyque + Gyptian + Etana + Ding Dong

Got 2 Luv U
Sean Paul feat. Alexis Jordan

>>Listen

If you are among the many speculating on when dancehall hotshot Sean Paul will drop his next album, news from the entertainer’s camp suggests that the follow-up to 2009’s Imperial Blaze arrives close to the end of the year via Atlantic Records (a concrete date is not yet available). In the meantime though, SP heralds his comeback with “Got 2 Luv U” (produced by Stargate), a lush dancehall-pop groove (featuring talented newcomer and labelmate Alexis Jordan) that proves that the artiste still delivers with appealing force.

What You Like
Denyque and Ding Dong
>>
Listen

Summer lovin’ is in the air for Ding Dong and dancehall’s latest ‘it’ girl Denyque, who flirt and forge a musical connection on the pulsating new club jam “What You Like” (produced by Washroom). Denyque’s delicate vocals (think Ameriie meets Tami Chynn) provide a wonderful foil for Ding Dong’s bad-boy swag and fresh rhymes. A hot duet to ignite romantic sparks on the dancefloor. B

Dem Love Me
Gyptian and Etana

>>
Listen

Traces of soca meld with buzzy reggae grooves on this brand new single that brings together two of VP Records’ shining stars. Hearing the usually soulful Etana ride an uptempo beat takes some getting used to, but she holds her own opposite Gyptian, who is ever at home crooning about the scores of young women who want to hol’ him.
