It's no secret that Drake has taken such a liking towards dancehall culture that he recorded an entire album full of dancehall influenced singles. The album Views was the biggest selling album released by any artist last year and one of the biggest in decades release by a rapper. Last Year Sean Paul sound off on Drake saying that not only he was not the best rapper, but he doesn't make good dancehall music.

Speaking exclusively to Metro.co.uk at Radio 1's Big Weekend in Hull, he claimed that the rapper should have given greater 'accolades' on the hit track - which was the best-selling UK single of 2016.

'He's friendly with a few people in the business in Jamaica and that's good, I love it.

'But if he had given more accolades when he was actually making it and said "this is the music I love", it would have been cool.'

Bringing Ed Sheeran into the debate, he added: 'Ed Sheeran has done one song that is huge and it's dancehall reminiscent.

'But that is one song, he [Drake] had an album full of dancehall so I think he should have paid a bit of an accolade and told people in the press that is where I'm coming from, I have a love for that music.'

The dancehall legend also spoke about hearing the patter of tiny feet after welcoming his first child, son Levi Blaze, with wife Jodi Stewart in February.

'It's been three months now and I'm getting the daddy muscles!', he joked.

'A lot of stuff has changed, but it's only for the better. He's brought light into our lives and we're really thankful."

And when it came to his own music, he teased a forthcoming collaboration with Shakira - having previously worked with the likes of SIA and Little Mix in recent years.

He said: 'I just released a new song with Migos that is about to pop off on radios, big up to them!

'I'm also looking forward to dropping a single with Shakira, it's being mixed right now!'
