The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) on Saturday, September 23, presented international superstar Sean Paul with an honorary plaque for having sold over 26 million records in the United Sates.

Deemed one of Caribbean’s most commercially successful artistes, Sean Paul has received platinum plaques for Get Busy (2003) and chart topping 2005 single We Be Burning. The Grammy Award winning star also received a plaque for his three times platinum-winning single Temperature. Most recently, the Dancehall, crossover artiste was presented with a plaque from the Recording Industry Association of America to commemorate the career marker of over 26 million record sales.

With fans across the world, Sean Paul has received numerous plaques and has been certified platinum in other regions but acknowledges and appreciates the RIAA honorary plaque as a prized milestone.

Catching his breath backstage, he was elated to be introduced to one Joel Flatow, RIAA’s Chief of West Coast Operations and Artist and Industry Relations, who later presented the artiste with the prized plaque.

“I love and cherish all my fans…it’s their love and appreciation that keeps this all blazin’ but I always have my eyes on the American market ‘cause it’s a region I want to build on.” Sean Paul shared. “The awards never get old, it’s always a big deal and I continue to feel proud to bring Jamaican music to these regions and in return get nothing but love from the fans and the industry so I will continue to put the work in,” continued the multi-platinum artiste.

Sean Paul goes back on tour this October to see fans in Australia where he will hit the stage in a number of cities including Sydney, Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne and Brisbane, before making his final stop in Auckland, New Zealand.
