Sean Paul’s chat with Vice Documentaries’ Dan Zabludovsky and the one and only Tofu Jack took an unexpected twist, and it wasn’t some groundbreaking freestyle. No, this was Mother Nature dropping her own beat, and Sean was about to do a little “earthquake dance.”
The 50-year-old reggae sensation was deep into a discussion about making music in his homeland, Kingston, Jamaica, when his house decided it was time for a shake-up – and not the fun, booty-shaking kind.
Suddenly, Sean exclaimed, “Oh s—, we’re having an earthquake!” and sprang up from his chair faster than you can say “temperature rising.” And just like that, the call vanished into thin air, probably off to join a support group for abrupt disconnections.
Now, let’s get this straight: we’re talking about a 5.4 magnitude earthquake in the land of dancehall and jerk chicken. The ground beneath Sean’s feet wasn’t just doing the cha-cha; it was twerking like it was auditioning for a reggae music video.
According to the Associated Press, the earthquake didn’t create any casualties or serious damage, but it did send folks running out of buildings faster than Usain Bolt after a triple espresso. And just to add a little extra spice to the mix, there were some power outages in the area – because, apparently, the earthquake thought they needed mood lighting for this impromptu dance-off.
So, in the grand tradition of Sean Paul’s greatest hits, it seems that even earthquakes can’t resist “shakin’ that thing.” Kingston, you keep groovin’, and Sean, you keep bringing those hits – and those earth-shattering interviews!
