Sean Paul
In 2002, Sean Paul began working extensively with a team of producers and choreographers from Toronto, namely Jae Blaze and Blaze Entertainment and announced the release of his second album, Dutty Rock.

Pushed by the success of the singles "Gimme the Light" and the Billboard Hot 100 topper, "Get Busy", the album was a worldwide success, eventually selling over six million copies.

OMI
In 2014, OMI ska single "Cheerleader" was remixed by Felix Jaehn and has been a worldwide commercial success.

It has topped the charts in several countries, including Australia, Germany and the United Kingdom. In the latter country, OMI made history on May 24, 2015, when "Cheerleader" topped the UK Singles Chart for the fourth week in a row, marking the longest consecutive period any Jamaican artist has held that position on the chart.

In the United States, the song entered the Billboard Hot 100 at number 95 in May 2015; it later made the top spot of the Hot 100 after 12 weeks in the chart.
