This might come as a surprise to those who see dancehall music simply as body-moving entertainment, but while you’re shaking what your mother gave you, you’re also gaining a solid grounding in the principles of thermodynamics.  Consider Press It Up, the second single off Sean Paul‘s forthcoming senior album: here, the Kingston-born hitmaker illustrates the way in which kinetic energy can be transferred as “heat” from one body to another.  Over a uptempo, synth-heavy riddim by Stephen McGregor, Paul explains that, when two formerly isolated systems—for example, himself and a female clubgoer—are put into contact with one another, the vibrational motion of said shorty’s “ass molecules” (technical term) results in a pure heat reaction in which the two bodies move towards thermal equilibrium (as per Zeroth’s law).  Got it?  Good!  Of course, the single isn’t just a clinical exercise in science-dropping; the combination of Sean’s heavily-accented rhymes and the propulsive beat adds up to a cut that’s as danceable as it is informative.  For more of Sean Paul’s dancefloor-scorching brand of edutainment, pick up a copy of his long-awaited Imperial Blaze LP when it drops on August 18th.
