Not that he didn't have a lot to do with his own success. After scoring several smashes in his native Jamaica during the late '90s, Paul found the perfect minimalistic midpoint between dancehall and urban music. With help from chart-busting producers on the island (Sly & Robbie) and in the States (the Neptunes), his 2002 album Dutty Rock became the reggae crossover hit everyone had almost given up waiting for. Proof that both Paul and Jamaican music appear here to stay arrived with the follow-up, last year's The Trinity. Despite abandoning the big-name boardsmen and the Yank-friendly hooks of its predecessor, the album has generated two Top 10 hits ("We Be Burnin'" and "Temperature") and hasn't cooled down yet.
