This "Sean Paul" is not to be confused with the Atlanta rapper of the same name from The Youngbloodz.

Sean Paul (real name Sean Paul Henriques, born January 8, 1973) is a Jamaican Dancehall singer of Sephardi Jewish, Chinese and African lineage. His voice and style of singing is often compared to Jamaican 1990s dancehall sensation Super Cat.

Biography

In 1997, Paul recorded in combination with Spanner Banner on the Jamaican chart-topper, "Ladies Man", through the singer's Sweet Angel Productions. The hit resulted in his embarking on sessions with Jeremy Harding, a little known producer who burst on the scene with his production of Beenie Man's crossover hit, "Who Am I". The producer released the dancehall favourite "Baby Girl", which was followed by the more successful, "Infiltrate". The latter single joined the singer's combination hit in the Jamaican chart.
