Sean Paul talks to Ras Kwame on The Reggae Recipe.
Sean Paul has collaborated with some of the world's biggest stars over the years, but in a brand new interview with Capital XTRA's Ras Kwame, he's revealed why working with Rihanna was different.
Although the Dancehall superstar admitted that Beyoncé was one of his favourite artists to work with, saying; "Beyonce knew from the get go what she wanted out of the project so that was inspiring to see", Rihanna did something special when she hooked up with with Sean Paul, that other artists he worked with in the past hadn't.

Sean also opened up about the big decision to sign to a label, something that more and more artists - including, most notably, Chance The Rapper - have opted out of.
"The deal was very favourable, they’ve given me creative control," he said.
"I’ve always wanted to work with certain people which i’m being able to record with right now. I see them as a stepping stone - people to help to get me to where I want to go, it’s a wider push."
