FULL Frequency is the title of the new album by Grammy-winning deejay Sean Paul. His sixth studio album, it is scheduled to be released jointly on February 18 by Atlantic and VP Records.

Full Frequency boasts several collaborations with pop acts Nicky Minaj, 2Chainz and Juicy J.

Two singles from the album, Want Dem All (featuring Konshens) and Riot (with Damian 'Junior Gong' Marley) have already been released.

Compared to albums like Grammy winner Dutty Rock and its follow-up The Trinity, which both went multi-platinum, Sean Paul's last two albums have not fared well.

Imperial Blaze, released in 2010, sold just over 100,000 copies in the United States, while last year's Tomahawk Technique sold even less.

He has had some success in recent years with hit singles. What About Us, done with British girl group The Saturdays and Other Side of Love; both made the British pop chart in 2012 and last year, respectively.

Dutty Rock and The Trinity were released during a period of popularity for dancehall in the US.

Shaggy and Damian 'Junior Gong' Marley also had big-selling albums in that country with Hot Shot (2000) and Welcome to Jamrock which was released in 2006.

To promote Full Frequency, Sean Paul is expected to perform at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on Valentine's Day and at the 9 Mile Music Festival in Florida on February 15.
