Over a month ago, the Pree Dis Instagram page reported that Atlantic Records had severed ties with Sean Paul, breaking a decade-long relationship that produced a string of hit singles and two platinum albums. Now, Atlantic Records has confirmed those rumours to the Jamaica Observer.


Rumours that the label had dropped the Grammy-winning artiste have made the rounds in recent weeks. Craig Kallman, chairman and CEO of Atlantic Records, confirmed the split via email on the weekend.

Asked by the Jamaica Observer if Sean Paul was still with the label, Kallman responded: "No longer." He did not elaborate about what caused the split.

Sean Paul signed with Atlantic Records in a joint deal with the independent VP Records in late 2002 following the success of his song Gimme the Light.
Atlantic released the deejay's major label debut album, Dutty Rock, in November that year. It scored five Top 10 United Kingdom singles and five Top 15 Billboard Hot 100 hits, including Gimme the Light, Baby Boy (with Beyonce), Like Glue, Get Busy, and I'm Still in Love With You (featuring Sasha).
