Classic singles from Sean Paul and Mad Cobra got a taste of TV success when featured in new Hulu miniseries The stall.
The musical influence of reggae/dancehall has gradually seeped into international mainstream media and films. Sean Paul and Cobra are the latest artists on the island who now have their work featured in another drama series which premiered on Hulu on March 3, 2022.
Sean Paul’s 2005 hit “Temperature” and a rendition of Mad Cobra’s 2001 “Press Trigger” made their way onto the soundtrack of The stall, which concerns American biotech entrepreneur Elizabeth Holmes, who was convicted of fraud in January. Holmes was found guilty of misleading investors into believing that her blood testing startup had created a revolutionary new medical device.
Sean Paul’s ‘Temperature’, produced by Jah Snow Cone, is featured in episode two titled ‘Satori’, while Cobra’s track will debut in an as yet unreleased episode. Other notable names from the show’s soundtrack are Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry, Len, Missy Elliott, and Amy Winehouse.
The eight-episode series stars Amanda Seyfried as the disgraced Holmes and chronicles the meteoric rise and colossal fall of Holmes and his company Theranos. Based on the ABC podcast, the limited series shows how the self-made billionaire and CEO of Theranos Corporation seemed to be doing just fine until her budding empire crumbled around her in the blink of an eye. So far, reviews from Rotten Tomatoes and Rollin Stones have been more than favorable, citing it as an engrossing and surprisingly funny movie hit.
In 2003, Holmes founded and served as CEO of the now-defunct health technology organization whose assets soared after the company claimed it had revolutionized blood testing in a new method that uses a very small volume of blood, like that of a finger. sting. In 2015, Forbes magazine named Holmes America’s youngest and richest self-made billionaire based on her company’s $9 million valuation.
However, less than a year later, when allegations emerged that the company could not produce what it claimed it could produce, allegations of fraud began to surface. Based on Holmes’ inability to substantiate his claims as well as an impending criminal investigation, Forbes later revised its estimate of Holmes’ net worth to zero.
