Reggae Grammy heavyweights Sean Paul and Damian 'Jr Gong' Marley have hit the streets with a new collaboration, 'Riot', which has been creating high levels of anticipation for the release of the video.

The video for Riot will be released worldwide tomorrow, on TVJ's Intense and CVM TV's Onstage.

Under the direction of Jon J, the artistes linked up in Miami to shoot the official Riot video.

Jon J, who has worked with Sean Paul on other projects, as well as with artistes like Rick Ross, Meek Mill, Wale and a host of other superstars, was delighted to work with Damian Marley for the first time.

"Honestly, it was just an honour to be able to work with Damian. He was very humble and easy to work with. Couldn't ask for anything else from an artiste of his stature," commented Jon J.

Having worked with Sean Paul before, Jon J added, "I feel like this time was better because I believe he trusts my vision now, and it was definitely a bigger and more fun set for him to work on."

The popular music video director also commented on the ease of execution of the project.

"Thankfully, I really didn't face any challenges for this particular shoot. Everything went as planned and, as always, Sean was a pleasure to work with."

The video also features, along with Sean Paul and Damian Marley, appearances from members of Ghetto Youths International, acting in small cameo roles as they portray various messages from the song.

According to Jason Henriques, Sean Paul's musical director, the video for Riot is eagerly being awaited by fans.

"Riot continues to blow up the airways, making inroads on global music charts. Riot is definitely a must-listen and the video will be a must-see. It adds to the anticipation building for Sean Paul's Full Frequency album, which will also feature another Jamaican artiste, Konshens."

Sean Paul's Full Frequency album is set to be released on February 18 and can be pre-ordered on iTunes.
