On the heels of his recently released chart topping single “Dynamite” featuring Sia and his 7th studio album ‘Live N Livin’, Sean Paul continues to remain one of the most sought-after artists in music.
The annual British music award honors achievements in black music and culture and will take place on Sunday, December 5th at Coventry Building Society Arena, with the event set to be live streamed on YouTube and air on the BBC.

Across seven studio albums and counting, Sean Paul has taken the genre global, from its origin in clubs in Kingston, Jamaica to the top of the charts, packing some of the biggest venues in more than 120 countries. Only Sean has the distinction of being the first Jamaican to play shows in Kazakhstan and Madagascar.
