Sean Paul Wants Drake to Give Dancehall Artists More Credit

In an interview with Metro UK, Paul said that he believed Drizzy should have taken consideration into crediting the culture after the blazing success of a dancehall-packed album, and tracks such as his 2016 “One Dance” craze.

In his previous sentiment on the matter, Paul revealed that it was a “sore point” when artists like Drizzy and Bieber strip the dancehall music of its credit when heavily infusing it into their own sound. He added that artists like Major Lazer have also rubbed Jamaican artists the wrong way for the same reason.

Sean Paul isn’t impressed with Drizzy’s use of the genre.

The ‘No Lie’ singer claims Drizzy isn’t giving the genre enough credit for his recent success.

“That’s Dancehall you’re doing, so please say ‘This is my Dancehall-oriented single or ‘this is my Dancehall song’ because that helps,” he told Yinka on Capital XTRA.

“Dancehall doesn’t have a place in Grammys still. We’re under Reggae and it’s a bit weird.”

Drake’s latest projects ‘Views’ and ‘More Life’ have both feature a number of Dancehall-inspired songs including ‘Controlla’, ‘One Dance’ and ‘Blem’.

Interestingly, this isn’t the first time Sean Paul has voiced his frustrations with artists using the Dancehall sound.
