Summer Paradise

Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

Somali-Canadian rapper/ singer K'naan is the guest vocalist on this tune. Frontman Pierre Bouvier told Buzznet they really wanted the Wavin' Flag artist on this track as they thought, "his voice suits the song perfectly."
This song was inspired by Bouvier's hobby of surfing, which is an important part of his life. He told Buzznet: "I've spent a lot of time out there when the surf is not that great and you're waiting for a wave, just sitting on the water seeing dolphins and seals go by, taking in a beautiful sunset. I think about music a lot and have probably thought about some lyrics out there. Also this song called "Summer Paradise" on the album has got that beautiful vibe that I can probably attribute to going on surf trips."
The single version, which was released to the iTunes store on February 28, 2012, features guest vocals from Sean Paul rather than K'naan.
