Today, we journey back yet to the beginning of the ’00s with a sun-kissed classic.
This week’s From The Vault comes courtesy of Sean Paul “alongside Sasha.” It’s ‘I’m Still in Love with You.’
Join us after the jump…
Issued as the last single from Paul’s international breakthrough ‘Dutty Rock,’ ‘Love’ was written by the artist and produced by Steely & Clevie. It features fellow Jamaican musician Sasha and is an interpolation of the song of the same name, originally by Alton Ellis.
‘Love’ followed a bevy of hits scored by Sean in the preceding months, such as ‘Gimme The Light,’ chart-toppers ‘Get Busy’ and Beyonce’s ‘Baby Boy’, as well as international smash ‘Breathe’ with Blu Cantrell.
Like its predecessors, the track had a healthy chart run, peaking at #14 on the US Hot 100 and #6 in the UK.
Director X was tasked with actualizing the tune’s music video. His offering was a colorful and dance-heavy visual, choreographed by Tanisha Scott. Bandanas, baggy clothing, big chains, hot pants, and stilettos: welcome to the year 2003.
While the video sees Sean Paul and Sasha performing the song, it also follows exes reminiscing on the good ole days then reuniting for one more steamy moment on the dancefloor at the club. Cute.
Almost two decades on, Sean Paul remains to this day a well-respected and sought-after act. Whether he is scoring hits in America with Sia, in the UK with Clean Bandit, or in Jamaica with Spice, his name has never disappeared from the music conversations for almost 20 years and hopefully won’t anytime soon.
