Sean Paul was born in Kingston in 1973 as Sean Paul Ryan Francis Henriques. His father descends from Sephardic Jews from Portugal, his mother, who is also a well-known painter, has ancestors from Africa and China.

The latter he even practiced in the Jamaican youth national team until he was 21 years old.

With the song "Baby Girl (Do not Cry)" he celebrated his first success in 1996 in Jamaica.

"Dutty Rock," featuring the hit single "Get Busy," sold over six million copies and won a Grammy in the category “Best Reggae Album”.
His third album "The Trinity" was released in 2005, making the singer the leading Jamaican musician in the world.
