Before he hooked up with Sia for some "Cheap Thrills" -- their #1 collaboration -- the last time Sean Paul was #1 on the pop charts was a decade ago.  He tells Billboard it was an "amazing feeling" to be back in the spotlight.

Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams Ask Court to Overturn "Blurred Lines" Verdict
