Check out Sean Paul's new music video for his smash "Touch The Sky"!
Grammy award-winning artiste, Sean Paul, has
released a blazing hot 3D video for his single, Touch the Sky. The track is
housed on his fifth studio album Tomahawk Technique, and merges Sean
Paul‟s signature dancehall sound with a punchy techno beat -the beat
being produced by DJ Ammo.
The club rhythm is beautifully accompanied by this colourful video which
adds a high-tech, yet down-to-earth twist. The ultra-mod video‟s high
energy keeps viewers engaged as the dancers and the dance moves
captivate and inspire movement.
Sean Paul is personally excited about the track as expressed at the
Caribbean launch of Tomahawk Technique which took place at the Fiction
Launch in Kingston, Jamaica on Wednesday, June 13. The track is not in
accordance with Sean Paul‟s previous hits as the artiste explored techno
for the first time. When asked why he ventured to these new grounds,
Sean Paul expressed that he was quite comfortable with the exploration. In
fact, “Techno kinda reminds me of Reggae One Drop” according to the
performer. Sean Paul also expressed that Tomahawk Technique highlights
the fact that “Dancehall music is cutting edge music” and so, the Touch
the Sky video further fortifies his philosophy.
The 3D video was directed by Davy Duhamel of Boulevard Industires.
The effects applied complement the bold movements of the dancers while
the array of lights and colours radiate throughout the video. The
technologic aspect of the video seen through the highlighting of the
Samsung Tab and other futuristic facets add to the fusion of creativity for
the song‟s concept and sound.
The video portrays the Jamaican motto, “Out of Many, One People”
through its amalgamation of Jamaican roots and the eastern culture. It is
seasoned with Jamaican flavour via Jamaican flag earrings on one of the
sassy dancers, and splashed with Jamaican dance moves executed in a
uniformed fashion. The dancers add an explosive spread of heat to the
video. The three female dancers showcase their individual appeal to add to
the video‟s finesse. The Asian dancer portrays Asian-Jamaican culture as
she manipulates the Jamaican vibe and represents the Dancehall-loving
Asian massive. The other two young women tease the viewers with their
enticing moves, representing the “dutty” moves of the Caribbean and
others from different worldwide cultures. The group of male dancers signs
off on the Jamaican vibe, employing some of the island‟s hot moves like „cow foot‟ and others.
The video shows Sean Paul truly celebrating in true Tomahawk Technique
style as he sports his now signature image. The artiste adds this video to
the list of high-quality videos that accompany the songs from his new
album.The tracks showcase Sean Paul’s signature, down-to-earth
sound amid collaborations with R&B singer, Kelly Rowland, pop
singer, Alexis Jordan, among others. The collection is predominantly
hybrid dancehall as the dancehall flavour has been merged with hip
hop, pop and techno tempos as shown respectively in some of the
album’s hit singles How Deep is Your Love, She Doesn’t Mind and Got 2
Luv U. The album is also home to more hit singles like Hold On,
Wedding Crashers and Dream Girl, all of which have videos which
depict different aspects of the artiste’s personality. Sean Paul, in
reviewing his album, expressed that “I think it sounds pretty cool, and I
think people should like a couple of the songs on there”.
The artiste has maintained international success having released four
memorable albums: Stage One, Dutty Rock, The Trinity and Imperial
Blaze. The artiste has created many well-liked, cross-over Dancehall
tunes like Gimme the Light, Like Glue, Get Busy, Temperature and
Watch them Roll.
