Sean Paul stopped to chat with Billboard’s Carlos Adyan and Pili Montilla on the red carpet ahead of the Billboard Latin Music Awards on Thursday (April 25), discussing why being embraced by the Latin community means so much to him and teasing some new collaborations.
Asked how it feels to be embraced by the Latino community as much as he is, Paul told Billboard, “I do have Portuguese roots, we just grew up in Jamaica in an English-speaking situation, so I don’t speak Spanish fluently, so to be accepted, that’s a great feeling.”
“I’ve wanted to work with J Balvin and Tainy for a long time, that’s the producer on the track we did, and so it’s a dream come true,” he added.
Sean Paul was also asked if he has any more collaborations in the works with other Latino artists, to which he revealed that he’s been talking to Anitta about doing something with her and that he loves Natti Natasha.
