Sean Paul has just announced that he will join Mariah Carey on a North American concert tour hitting arenas across the country and Canada. This tour comes hard on the heels of Sean's third album, The Trinity (VP/Atlantic) being certified RIAA platinum. This is Sean's first national tour of this magnitude since the Roc The Mic Tour in 2003 and Mariah's first in over three years. Sean is set to join "The Adventures of Mimi: The Voice, The Hits, The Tour" on August 7th in Tampa, FL and tour the nation and Canada with Mariah through September 9th in Auburn Hills, MI. Tickets for most dates go on sale Friday, June 2nd. Live Nation is producing the tour.
Sean recently released the third single from The Trinity, titled "Give It Up To Me." The single is #50 and rising on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, and among the top five new & active tracks at CHR/Rhythmic radio. Meanwhile, "Temperature," his recent #1 smash crossover single, is still riding the top three on the national CHR/Pop charts and the top ten on the CHR/Rhythmic outlets. Prior to hitting the road with Mariah, Sean will travel to Europe for an extensive 4-week European tour beginning at the end of June.
Sean 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.
Seal Paul's The Trinity is currently in its 34th week on the national charts, including 21 weeks at #1 on Billboard's Top Reggae Albums chart. The album has been a huge international hit, 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."
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 breakthrough success of Dutty Rock, Sean racked up numerous prestigious awards, including the Grammy for Best Reggae Album and MTV Europe's Best New Artist Award as well as Source, MOBO, Juno, Much Music, and International Reggae and World Music awards.
