Sean Paul Erases Marley/Shaggy's 50 Million Recorded Youtube Views

International Dancehall/Reggae artiste Sean Paul scored a major milestone recently through the North American country's biggest video-sharing outlet and erased Reggae's legendary Bob Marley and platinum selling Reggae artiste Shaggy's, astounding recorded youtube views of 50 million for singles (No Woman No Cry) and (Angel) respectively.  Sean Paul's most viewed single entitled, "Got 2 Luv U" featuring American pop princess, Alexis Jordan hit a record 100 million views mark recently.

According to reports obtained from Examiner.com this is a good look for Sean Paul to whom as a result, became the first Jamaican artiste to reach such a milestone with one single as the lead track off his new album, Tomahawk Technique.  

Overall this is also a good look for the controversial Dancehall Music genre, described as Jamaican street or underground music and criticized harshly from international organizations and individuals for its violent and sometimes homophobic lyrics, although the lyrical themes are more varied than simply dealing with slackness and violence. 

Sean Paul's, 'She Doesn't Mind' single combined with the audio version, has been viewed over 150 million times on Youtube and now has over 95 million views to date since its unveiling 10 month ago on Atlantic Records' official channel.  Tomahawk Technique stands at number four on Billboard's albums chart.
