Sean Paul Raises His "Temperature" All the Way to the Top of the Charts

"Temperature" Is Sean Paul's Third Single to Hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 03/23/06 -- Reggae and Dancehall superstar Sean Paul has once again claimed the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with "Temperature," which is the Top Airplay Gainer for the fourth time in five weeks as it rockets to #1 after 11 weeks on the charts. This marks the third time Sean Paul has held down the #1 single -- he previously rose to the peak of the charts with "Get Busy" and "Baby Boy" featuring Beyonce from his previous album "Dutty Rock."

"Temperature" is the second single off Sean's new VP/Atlantic album, "The Trinity," which is fast approaching platinum status here in the U.S. and has already sold well over a million copies outside of the U.S. "The Trinity" is currently #25 and rising after some 25 weeks on the Billboard Top 200 album charts; it debuted at #7 in late September, with 107,000 copies sold in its first week, a U.S. sales record for a Jamaican artist.

The rise of "Temperature" makes Sean Paul the most successful Jamaican artist ever on the U.S. charts, with three #1 singles, five Top Ten Hits, and eight chart entries. Other Top Ten hits include "Gimme The Light" and "The Trinity's" first single "We Be Burnin," which peaked at #7 and is still receiving spins at radio around the country.

Sean Paul is currently on tour in support of "The Trinity," with upcoming stops in New York, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Detroit, Indianapolis, Chicago, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Denver, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles. Following the U.S. leg of the tour, the international star will head to South Africa.

"The Trinity" is the follow-up to Sean's smash hit "Dutty Rock," which sold more than 6 million copies worldwide. In the wake of the breakthrough success of "Dutty Rock," Sean racked up numerous prestigious awards, including the Grammy for Best Reggae Album -- redefining the category in the process. He won MTV Europe's Best New Artist Award as well as Source, MOBO, Juno, Much Music, and International Reggae and World Music awards.
