Sean Paul took Rihanna on Jamaica adventure
Sean Paul took Rihanna gallivanting around Jamaica 11 years ago.
The 43-year-old rapper – who is from the Caribbean island but now lives in the US – invited the brunette beauty, who is originally from Barbados, to his native country when they penned their hit ‘Break It Off’ because he wanted to show her round.
Speaking to Nick Grimshaw on his BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show on Friday (12.02.16), he said: "It (‘Break it Off’) was my favorite collaboration because most of my collaborations before had been done through the internet, or I flew to Miami to do a song with Beyoncé, and I’ve flown to loads of other places, but none of them actually came to Jamaica. Me and Rihanna just kept seeing each other when touring and stuff and she was a young Caribbean artist from Barbados and she said to me a lot of her generation in Barbados look up to Jamaica and Jamaican artists and she just wanted to come for a long time. I love the opportunity for people to come and see where I’m from and how I see the world and picture it from how I do."
But it wasn’t all hard work and no play as the ‘Temperature’ hitmaker took the 28-year-old singer back to his hometown of Kingston to give her a proper night out.
He explained: "She came to Kingston and we took her on jet skis, we took her to the clubs, and then she came reluctantly to the studio because she was just having so much fun exploring, but yeah it was one of the most memorable collaborations because she came and she saw the things that we love to do, she’s dope."
