Lights On

Album: Full Frequency (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • This song finds Sean Paul working with Senegalese-American R&B singer and producer Akon, who gave him some constructive criticism. "He really wanted me to do my thing, but also to sing a lot more of the song in English," Paul told Billboard magazine. "I'm usually singing more Jamaican-style, harder-to-understand lyrics."
