‘Beyoncé stepped out of her comfort zone to collaborate with me’ – Sean Paul

Jamaican dancehall star, Sean Paul, has opened up about how his collaboration with American pop singer, Beyoncé happened.

Beyoncé featured Sean Paul on ‘Baby Boy’ from her 2003 album ‘Dangerous Love’.

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Paul noted that Beyoncé stepped out of her comfort zone to collaborate with him on the dancehall track.

He said the song paved the way for the global acceptance of dancehall and made history for him and Beyoncé.

“I was [working] with Busta Rhymes, I was doing stuff with Clipse and I was doing stuff with Blu Cantrell — and all of those stuff was very dope but they were more hip-hop oriented, and this was such a big artist and she [Beyoncé] was stepping out on her own [genre],” he recalled.

“So it really made me feel that dancehall-style was coming into its own and that my music or genre was being accepted by many people. Coming from Texas, I know she’s heard a lot of dancehall growing up and [was] familiar with that whole vibe, so it made sense to me and it made history for both of us.”
