In anticipating for his fourth album Imperial Blaze, which drops on August 18, top’-notch deejay Sean Paul will soon be hitting American television hard.

Sean Paul is racking up major prime-time mileage on big networks in the United States such as BET, MTV, FOX and ABC. The appearances that he has already made includes Fox’s wildly popular series So You Think You Can Dance and one of America’s top-rated morning programmes Good Morning America. He’ll be appearing again on the well-liked BET’s 106 & Park on Thursday, September 17, and paying visits to the Wendy Williams Show and It’s on with Alexa Chung on MTV, both on Friday, September 18.

“We’ve been on the road, just straight promoting Imperial Blaze,” said the Grammy-winning artiste. “So Fine has been doing well, we’re winding down to that time for the album to drop, and the second single is ready to be released too.”

Press It Up, the second single set to be released from the album, has already been getting positive feedback from club and radio DJs, shared Sean Paul. Imperial Blaze was recorded in Jamaica and features productions from Jamaican producers such as Jeremy Harding, Stephen ‘Di Genius’ McGregor, Arif Cooper, Don Corleon, Craig ‘Leftside’ Parks, Delano Thomas and Sean’s own brother, Jason ‘Jigzagula’ Henriques.
