Grammy Award-winning dancehall artiste Sean Paul has teamed up with Latin superstar J Balvin for the release of his electrifying new single, Contra La Pared 'Against The Wall', via Island Records.

The new single follows the release of recent smash Mad Love, featuring Becky G, Shot & Wine with London's Stefflon Don, and BOASTY with Wiley, Stefflon Don and renowned actor Idris Elba.

On collaborating with Balvin, Sean said: "It was great working with J Balvin. He's a star from the Latin world who has such a great knowledge and respect for dancehall music. So when the dons of dancehall & Latin team up, the result is pure fire!"

Balvin is also happy with the collaboration.

"Working with Sean Paul was a real blessing. I've been a fan of his music for a long time, and since reggaeton obviously has strong roots from reggae, it was really exciting to bring our world's together," said the Colombian, who has received 11 number one Latin singles, more than 50 million social media followers, and more than 20 billion YouTube views.

The music video for Contra La Pared was directed by Andy Hines (Kali Uchis, Logic). It was released last Friday.
