Some of Sean Paul’s biggest singles of his career are collaborations with female artists so it seems he is sticking to that formula that has worked well for him. Over the years, the dancehall star has worked with the likes of Beyonce (Baby Boy), Sasha (I’m Still in Love), Blu Cantrell (Breathe), Keyshia Cole (Give It Up To Me), Kelly Rowland (How Deep is Your Love), and Alexis Jordan (Got 2 Luv U). Now he is getting ready to add another female assisted single “Mad Love” with Colombian pop star Shakira.
Sean Paul is currently working on his new album due sometime this year which will be the first body of work under his new deal with Island Record. This new track “Mad Love” with Shakira will appear on that new project. “I got something kind of more poppy coming in a little while, with Shakira,” SP said. “The song’s called ‘Mad Love’, it’s about being mad and having love, it’s more sexy. It’s not about love, it’s the sexiness. We’ve always wanted to work together, and I was like, ‘Yo, I’ve always wanted to work with you!’ She was like, ‘I’ve always wanted to work with you too.”
Sounds like there is a certain level of excitement among these two hitmakers about their new collaboration. The single “Mad Love” was produced by David Guetta and will be officially released on iTunes in the coming weeks.
