Fans have been waiting for dancehall/reggae hitmaker Sean Paul‘s fourth album for quite a while now—way back in September of ‘07, when it was titled The Next Thing, we brought you supposed lead single Watch Dem Roll. The LP still hasn’t materialized, but now it seems like Sean’s gotten back on track; on Saturday, he premiered the real first single off his senior album, now known as Imperial Blaze. Promising a female who’s So Fine that he’ll be her sunshine (if she’ll be his windchime), Paul sticks close to his formula—with a catchy hook, a bass-pounding, synth-heavy instrumental (courtesy of Stephen “Di Genius” McGregor), and plenty lightning-fast, heavily-accented rhymes, this cut has all the makings of another radio and dancefloor scorcher, and will likely be a hit among club-minded Booth readers. Set to drop August 18th, Imperial Blaze will come just in time to turn up the Temperature on the tail end of summer ‘09.
