The Dutty Boy Flings Down The Hits In The UK

Wednesday night saw DuttyPaul rock west London’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire. Every person in the joint was on fire. Girls were shaking their thang as the dutty boy flung down his hits and guys were sweating watching the girls on heat! It was a case of “not for the ill hearted”—and a timely reminder of how much the UK loves Sean Paul. Show Review and Video After The Jump…

Sean started his set from the top of his hit list. First came the Dutty Rock tunes “Like Glue” & “Get Busy”—Trust me even going to the loo at this point was a problem. Then came Trinity and by that time the “Temperature” was through the roof.

Even when he’s working through his catalog of hits, Sean knows how to keep it updated. The whole show was remixed to his Tomahawk Technique style and he had everyone moving to his groove. Didn’t matter if he jumped up or down, right or left, the crowd were happy to follow suit enthusiastically. Frankly if the audience weren’t so tightly packed together there probably would have been enough energy in the place for a few back flips!

The night remained in the same frenzy as tunes off the latest album Tomahawk Technique “Got to Luv Ya” and “She Doesn’t Mind” started rolling out but of course the cherry on the cake was when “What About Us”—his new collab with UK girl group The Saturdays came on. I could practically see a smug smile on his face from where I was sitting in the balcony. And rightly so (if you’re not up on the tune, get familar below).

That’s where the night ended at the Empire, but those who linked @brandnewmachine and made it to the aftershow party at Picadilly’s DSTRKT nightclub will know what it’s like to party with @duttypaul. That’s another review altogether!
