Sean Paul Talks 'Tomahawk Technique' Album, Touring & Kelly Rowland Single

Shortly after the release of his fifth studio album "Tomahawk Technique" (Sept. 18), Sean Paul hit the stadiums to connect with fans.

"Touring helps to get people aware you're back in the building," Sean Paul told Billboard.

The dancehall artist is embarking on a the Red Bull Brandwagen tour across Austria. The tour will kick off in Vienna on November 18 and conclude in Bregenz on Nov. 22. Before the tour, Sean Paul will be performing in India from Nov. 2-4.

"Tomahawk Technique" marks Sean Peaul's return to music since "Imperial Blaze" (2009). The 12-track full-length opus blends dancehall, R&B and rap with guest appearances by Alexis Jordan, Rico Love, DJ Ammo, Future Fambo, and Kelly Rowland.

"The keys, the keyboard that they're using sounds more R&B-ish but the bass & drums are dancehall oriented. It's a perfect mixture," he said about the sound of his collaboration with Kelly, titled "How Deep Is Your Love."
