Sean Paul has an impressive solo career, but a major contributor to the Jamaican artist's path to global success has been his affinity for collaborations. Sean Paul has worked with a ridiculous range of artists, from fellow countrymen like Konshens and Damian Marley, to reggaeton acts Pitbull and Farruko, and R&B stars such as Kelly Rowland and Jay Sean. He's even guested on a track by the Canadian pop-punk band, Simple Plan. It's a savvy move; one that keeps his voice on the radio in regional and global pop markets — and it's also produced some pretty inspired music.
As part of #SeanPaulWeek, The FADER's staff sifted through 16 years worth of music and came up with a shortlist of Sean Paul's eight best collaborations.
