Sean reflected on the track and video, saying, “‘Light My Fire’ is an epic dream come true. I’ve been a fan of Gwen Stefani forever and Shenseea – I am so proud of all she’s accomplished in such a short time. ‘Light My Fire’ is a big bad lover’s rock song and we had to represent it with a big bad video. We went retro on the attire in the video and basically getting ready to party and some lovers rocking. It’s a vibe we hope everyone gets when they listen to the track—feel good and party lovers rock style.”
The sixteen-track album finds the global icon serving up his classic infectious sound and party-starting rhythms, just in time for the summer. In traditional Sean Paul fashion, the album boasts features from legendary artists across genres including “Light My Fire,” featuring Gwen Stefani and Shenseea. The unexpected pairing of vocals from pop icon Gwen Stefani and Jamaican dancehall stronghold Shenseea is a testament to Paul’s supreme ability to produce global hits. Complete with an unshakable chorus that hears Stefani sing “baby won’t you light my fire,” “Light My Fire” is primed to be this summer’s biggest anthem.
The new album also includes previously released songs “Scorcha,” “Only Fanz” (ft. Ty Dolla Sign), “Dynamite” (ft. Sia), “How We Do It” (ft. Pia Mia), and “No Fear” (ft. Damian Marley & Nicky Jam). While Scorcha promises to get you dancing, Sean takes his music to new depths on this project by exploring personal topics such as infidelity, stress, and fear on tracks like “Borrowed Time” and “Good Day.”
Sean’s next stop on the 2022 U.S. Scorcha tour is a special album release performance tonight (7/8) at The Novo in Los Angeles, before he hits the road in the U.K., Europe, and Canada this summer. Sean is also set to join Pitbull this fall for the 2022 “Can’t Stop Us Now” tour.
