"Wyclef was here and he went to look for Mavado and Foota Hype, and while he was there, a friend of mine told him that he knew me, and Clef said 'get him on the phone'. We talked and I went up there to hold a vibe. Afterwards, him come and then he voiced and sent me the vocals to put on 'Peace and Love'. I worked closely with him to get it right, and as always, it was a great experience working with Clef," Sno Cone told YardFlex.com.

The two had had collaborations before on Sno Cone's dancehall rhythms, 'Gallop' and then later on the 'Rice and Peas' (Gangsta Cause, the sequel to Spragga's 'Warrior Cause'). Clef earned his first number one single to date with his collaboration with Shakira on "Hips Don't Lie", a Latin-pop mega hit that covered Wyclef's 2004 song "Dance Like This", which was not released as a single. Shakira assisted in writing and producing of the 2006 remake. The song was released as the second single from Shakira's second English album, Oral Fixation Vol. 2 this year. The single became a global success, topping the charts in many countries, and was also Shakira's first (and to date, only) number-one single in the US.
