Sean Paul Clears Up Comments On Jay-Z Jealous Of Him Being Around Beyonce

Sean Paul has stepped forward to clarify some recent comments alluding to Jay-Z being jealous of him being around Beyonce.

In a January interview with RJR 94’s Too Live Crew radio show in Jamaica, Sean Paul was cornered with questions about the long-lived conspiracy that Jay-Z was not very fond of him and was even quite jealous of him and Beyoncé. While Sean seemed to agree that there was something odd at play, he never admitted to anything happening between him and the famous singer. However, he believes his words were taken out of context after the interview.

Sean Paul spoke with HotNewHipHop for a new interview where he addressed the speculation once more. For those who thought ‘nothing’ was code for ‘something’, SP made it abundantly clear that he never disrespected Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s relationship. Somehow the media’s obsession with the almost two-decade-old story has forced the dancehall star to address the conspiracy on more occasions than necessary.

“It was a radio show here in Jamaica and I get this regularly. When I go to Texas, also, radio shows there, I don’t know what it is, people are like, ‘So tell me…’ and it gets to that part in that interview where they’re like, ‘What happened with you and Beyoncé?’ Nothing really happened. The hit song was dope,” Sean Paul explained.

He went on to say a pivotal part of what he said in the recent radio interview with radio host Burgerman was omitted in most publications. According to Sean Paul, his experience has taught him that refusing to speak on something is usually taken to mean that something scandalous went down so he opted to agree that the situation was strange but maintained that everything that’s been whispered about him and Bey is merely a rumor.

“You know, some of them made up their own mind. That’s the whatever. Sometimes with interviews, you can say, ‘I’d rather not speak about it,’ but then, people would think that something was going on,” he said. “So, I was trying to defend it like, ‘Hey nah, but weird things did happen, that’s probably why there were rumors,’ but people leave out ‘that’s probably why there were rumors’ part.”

Most of the details that fed the rumor all these years were deduced by fans who seemed to read into everything, including Sean Paul not getting the chance to perform the song with Beyoncé at the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards. “There were weird things that happened on stage with our performance, with the video. I know a headline said that ‘Oh, Jay-Z didn’t want me there.’ It had nothing to do with him as far as I’m concerned,” said Sean Paul.

To this day, people still speculate that it was Hov’s raging jealousy that caused it. Though Sean Paul met Jay-Z first, when he met Beyoncé, he found her to be rather meticulous and serious about her craft, so he highly doubts that her boyfriend at the time thwarted any of her career-enhancing efforts. “[Beyoncé’s] her own artist that was managed by her own manager. They were going out at the time. They weren’t married yet,” he explained. “I don’t think he would have influenced whatever her vision was. She’s a very determined person. She’s very precise with her thoughts and her movements and she works very hard. It was probably her vision.”

Sean Paul also elaborated on what he said in the Bugerman interview that suggested something was amiss. “So, what I did speak about in that interview was that there were some weird things that happened and that’s probably why people had rumors about it because a couple of times while on stage, we tried to perform [‘Baby Boy’] properly,” he said. “There were problems with the ProTools, which doesn’t usually happen. There was problems with my mic in one performance in Germany. That’s probably why people started talking about [it].”

The dancehall star is chalking this rumor up to simply that – a rumor. Even though the gossip seems to be standing the test of time, basically spanning Sean Paul’s entire career, it was born out of pure speculation and fans simply blowing things out of proportion. While he has clarified that nothing ever happened between him and Beyoncé several times now, it wouldn’t be surprising to hear this staple conversation piece come up in his interviews again.

Play this song

[Intro: Kodak Black]
Bitch, I make so much God damn hits
Gon’ get blitzed
Yeah, that part
Hit-maker, in this shit
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Skrrt

[Chorus: Kodak Black]
Called the label, tell ’em that I need to make more than this

I’m thankful, Lord, I’m grateful for this
Boy, I stayed up, I was waitin’ ’cause I prayed for this shit

[Post-Chorus: Kodak Black]
Go and drop the addy, T-shirt with no panties
Audi came from Germany, I got it free in North Miami
She get on and try and stay on the dick
Takin’ all day long, spent a long day on the dick

[Verse 1: Kodak Black]
She love pull out, high-speed, no breaks for the dick
That’s why she’ll get on her knees, she’ll pray for thе dick
Posted inside her lеgs, break for bread
Remember days, run up in your place, left for dead
Run up in your place, get in that nigga’s face, like it ain’t his
It’s a blessing in disguise that my niggas in the penn
Used to mask up and get in disguise, call it Treat or Trick
Lost my head, money on my mind, I can’t beef for shit
I got too much money, who wan’ hate on this?
Too much money, gotta hit the school for some paperclips
All this paper in this room, no paperclips
I broke the ruler tryna calculate this shit
I’m dripped in flavor, all these noya boys’ said
All this paper, I need a ruler or a bookbag
Shawty said she hungry for the dick
She go ape-shit, she said she’ll kill police for the dick

[Chorus: Kodak Black]
Called the label, tell ’em that I need to make more than this
I been makin’ hits my whole life, man, I make so much hits
I’m thankful, Lord, I’m grateful for this
Boy, I stayed up, I was waitin’ ’cause I prayed for this shit

[Post-Chorus: Kodak Black]
Go and drop the addy, T-shirt with no panties
Audi came from Germany, I got it free in North Miami
She get on and try and stay on the dick
Takin’ all day long, spent a long day on the dick

[Verse 2: Lil Yachty]
She want a nigga to herself
She want a young nigga to help expand her wealth
I’m chillin’, built like top shelf
Divin’ inside of that pussy, feelin’ like Michael Phelps
Lot of bodies on my belt
But she already known that, she get past it
How you fit up in ’em jeans? Must be elastic
How I steal her like this, I’m doin’ magic
That shawty gon’ hold me down, through the madness
That lil’ shawty beautiful, should be in pageant
Can’t see her in no cubicle, lil’ baby boxed up
And I rode for shawty flossed up, it might cost ya’
Single mother with a daughter, ain’t got no time
Ride my dick just like it’s manta, reverse, rewind
Tryna work on to your face until I’m ninety-nine
Any nigga play with you, I’ma lay ’em down

[Chorus: Kodak Black]
Called the label, tell ’em, I need to make more than this
I been makin’ hits my whole life, man, I make so much hits
I’m thankful, Lord, I’m grateful for this
Boy, I stayed up, I was waitin’ ’cause I prayed for this shit

[Post-Chorus: Kodak Black]
Go and drop the addy, T-shirt with no panties
Audi came from Germany, I got it free in North Miami
She get on and try and stay on the dick
Takin’ all day long, spent a long day on the dick
