Why Sean Paul turned down Cardi B

COLLABORATION: Sean Paul turned down a Cardi B feature on one of his songs

JAMAICAN ARTIST Sean Paul has scrapped a planned project with Cardi B.

After recording a demo for an upcoming track, Sean Paul was reportedly shocked to hear the Bodak Yellow hitmaker appear on it.

He told reporters: “Someone chopped up the song and put Cardi in it. I didn’t want it to be that someone put part of her song from some other thing with part of my song from some other thing, so I stopped it from happening.”

The Gimme the Light singer said he thought she was too famous just to be a feature on someone else's single.

But while he made a pass on this opportunity, Paul hasn’t ruled out working with Cardi in the future. He said: “I sent word to her saying that I want to work in the studio with her.

“There are many different styles of artists and art and production and sometimes it’s great to just mix and match, but I haven’t been feeling that way lately. I like to pinpoint exactly who I want to work with and get in the studio with them.”

He made the big decision so that the track wouldn't become detached from his vision. “I did have opportunities to work with her [Cardi B], where someone would mix and match production together, but I wasn’t down with that,” he explained.

“It didn’t sound like what I would come up with, being in studio with Cardi B or what she would come up with on the track. I’d love to work with her.”

Sean Paul’s last album Full Frequency was released back in 2014. He is now gearing up to release new music with his EP Mad Love, which features the likes of Tory Lanez, David Guetta, and Major Lazer.
