Sean Paul, the rap-reggae artist who brought us “Temperature” in 2005 and “Get Busy” in 2002, will make an appearance Thursday on Fort Myers Beach.
And fans may get a chance to hang out with him on the beach.
Paul, whose international music career has spanned 22 years, will participate in a VIP, invite-only meet-and-greet organized by Southwest Florida radio station 105.5 The Beat. From 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Paul will share new music from his EP “Mad Love: The Prequel,” which released earlier this summer.
The guest list to the meet-and-greet, which includes 105 people, is already full, according to the radio station’s website.
But after 8 p.m., Paul is expected to head to outdoors to the Lani Kai’s beachfront bar to linger with fans, who can enter at no charge.
But it all depends on the vibe, said Melissa Schneider, marketing director at the Lani Kai Island Resort.
“If a lot of people are there he’ll be more likely to get on the mic and talk to the crowd,” she said. “The bigger the crowd the more he’ll be enticed to get out and do some kind of entertainment.”
The Jamaican dancehall superstar has released seven studio albums. “Temperature” was his biggest hit single in the U.S. Other popular hits include “Baby Boy,” a duet with Beyoncé in 2003 and “Give It Up to Me,” a duet with Keyshia Cole in 2005.
