Grammy-winning entertainer Sean Paul has once again called out international superstar Drake for using dancehall without giving the genre its due.

In an interview with Metro.co.uk, the 44-year-old deejay pointed to Drake's use of dancehall music on his track, One Dance, and argued that he should have given greater "accolades" to the country for the hit single.

"I think at the time when it was popping off, it would have been good for him to actually put accolades towards the whole culture,”  Sean Paul said.

"He's friendly with a few people in the business in Jamaica and that's good, I love it. But if he had given more accolades when he was actually making it and said 'this is the music I love', it would have been cool."

Sean Paul mentioned Ed Sheeran as another international act who has piggybacked on the dancehall genre and has not given credit.

“Ed Sheeran has done one song that is huge and it's dancehall reminiscent but that is one song,” he said.

“He [Drake] had an album full of dancehall so I think he should have paid a bit of an accolade and told people in the press that is where I'm coming from, I have a love for that music."
