Sean Paul's third album, The Trinity (VP/Atlantic), has been certified platinum by the RIAA for U.S. sales of over 1 million units. The album current smash single, "Temperature," held the #1 spot on Billboard's Hot 100 Airplay chart for four consecutive weeks. The album's first single, "We Be Burnin'," was recently certified as an RIAA double platinum digital single. "Give It Up To Me," the third single from The Trinity, has just been released.
On the heels of his latest platinum certification, Sean Paul is gearing up for a fantastic summer - in addition to an extensive 4-week European tour, Sean will perform at MTV's Beach House on May 31st and at NYC's Hot 97 Summer Jam, the largest one-day hip-hop festival in the country.
Sean Paul's The Trinity is currently in its 33rd week on the national charts, including its 20th week at #1 on Billboard's Top Reggae Albums chart. The album has also been a huge hit around the world, selling over 1.2 million copies overseas. It is certified platinum in Canada, France, and the Gulf States, and gold in Belgium, Hong Kong, Ireland, Switzerland, Japan, and the United Kingdom, with as many as four singles heating up in these territories. The newest single to hit the international airwaves will be "Never Be The Same."
Sean has been seen performing hits from The Trinity on "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno," "Live! With Regis & Kelly," "The Jimmy Kimmel Show," and "Last Call with Carson Daly." He's recently been featured on the cover of YRB Magazine, Trace Magazine, Ozone Magazine, Music Connection, and Cannabis Culture. He is the most successful Jamaican artist of all time on the U.S. Charts, with three #1 singles ("Temperature," "Get Busy," and "Baby Boy"), five Top Ten hits (including "We Be Burnin'" and "Gimme The Light"), and eight chart entries over two worldwide multi-platinum albums. He's about to push that even further with the release of "Give It Up to Me."
The Trinity is the follow-up to Sean's smash VP/Atlantic debut, Dutty Rock, which sold more than 6 million copies worldwide. In the wake of the breakthrough success of Dutty Rock, Sean racked up numerous prestigious awards, including the Grammy for Best Reggae Album - redefining the category in the process.
