Dancehall superstar Sean Paul is best known for his maddeningly catchy hooks, his distinctive Jamaican lilt and ever-changing hairstyles that have run the gamut from cornrows to his current mohawk. But thanks to his iPad, this musical chameleon of coiffure has added a few more titles to his resume: technologist, tinker, producer.


Over the past few years, Sean Paul has been using the popular Apple product as a sort of melodic sketchpad, tapping out beats while traveling on planes, trains and automobiles and later refining them in the studio. One such song, “Roll wid di Don,” appears on his new album, Tomahawk Technique, released today.

Sean Paul demonstrates how he puts together songs with his iPad:



“This is basically a toy,” he explained, pointing to the iPad, on a recent visit to the FORBES headquarters. “But it’s something that I can put my ideas down and take to the studio.”

Musicians using the iPad to trace the beginnings of a song is more evolution than revolution. Michael Jackson carried around a voice recorder and would use it to capture ideas that came to him outside the studio. When Sean Paul got his start in the mid-1990s, he did the same. These days, the recording mechanism is simply more sophisticated.
