International dancehall superstar Sean Paul continues to reap success for his work in 2016, with the recent announcement of his second Teen Choice Awards nomination.

His collaboration Clean Bandit's hit single Rockabye, which also featured Anne-Marie earned the artiste a nomination in the category of Choice Electronic/Dance Song.

In 2016, Sean Paul nabbed a Teen Choice Awards nomination for Choice Party Song with Sia's Cheap Thrills.

Rockabye details the hardships of single mothers, which the artiste said is a topic he is passionate about, having grown up in a single-parent home while his father served prison time.

The single was released on October 21, 2016 and entered the UK Singles Chart at number seven after one week.

The following week, it climbed to number three, before high performance in streaming got it to number one on its third week.

It charted platinum on most charts across the world and peaked at number nine on the Billboard Hot 100 Charts.

The 2017 staging of the Teen Choice Awards celebrates the year's achievements in music, film, television, sports, fashion, comedy, and the Internet.

The winners are chosen by voters aged 13 to 19 over various social media sites.
