VP and Atlantic Records recently entered into a long-term strategic agreement to bring VP's outstanding reggae artists to mainstream and pop audiences. Sean Paul's second album, Dutty Rock, is the first artist album to benefit from this alliance, and it's the ideal place to start. The CD is a reggae tour-de-force that's spawning hit singles at an amazing clip, including "I'm Still in Love With You" (a duet with Sasha), and stirring up a major buzz in several camps. Dance fans will quickly turn on to "Get Busy" and "Can You Do the Work," a tune in the popular dancehall Liquid rhythm. Sean Paul manages the seamless integration of hip-hop and reggae, most notably on "Top of the Game" and the crossover juggernaut "Gimme the Light." Dancehall fans will find their groove with "Punkie" and "Like Glue."—PVV
