Watch Stonebwoy & Sean Paul's New Video For 'Most Original'

We premiere the new Jamaican-shot visual for "Most Original."

Ghana's Stonebwoy is having a strong year following the release of his latest album, Epistles of Mama (EOM), which paired 12 dancehall tracks with 12 afrobeats songs.

The reggae-dancehall star is now linking up with one of the world's dancehall heavyweights, Sean Paul, for the new music video for "Most Original," one of the clear standouts from EOM.

This new video, which we're premiering here today, was directed by Jay Will. It takes place in Jamaica and follows the tale of a love story in the ghetto. It's being released exclusively through TIDAL.

"Immediately, when I heard the rhythm of the track I felt that Sean Paul would be best suited for the song," Stonebwoy told us in an interview earlier this year. "So we decided to put calls through to have him on the track. It was a very quick process."

Stonebwoy's been racking in the top-tier collaborations, as he's also recently worked on music with Trey Songz, Chris Martin, Kranium and others.
