"I'm Still in Love with You" is a song by Jamaican dancehall artist Sean Paul from his second album Dutty Rock. It features Sasha. It reached #6 in the UK, #13 on the U.S. R&B chart, and #14 on the Billboard Hot 100. It became a top ten hit in Italy, Ireland and Switzerland.

Song synopsis[edit]

The song is an interpolation of "I'm Still in Love with You" by Alton Ellis.

Sean Paul and Sasha (the female counterpart) are discussing a stalled and seemingly unfulfilled relationship. Paul's character is trying to explain that the relationship was somewhat of an extended one-night stand, and that it has no future; Sasha's character seems to want to continue the relationship, despite Paul's admittance of "thug" love because she remains in love with him.

Though the original version's message was more vague, the message in this version seems much clearer in explaining the relationship between the characters in the song's story. Alton Ellis' version was originally produced as a one-man song, but he later teamed up with his sister, Hortense Ellis to perform a duet. It wasn't until this moment that the song showed a romantic battle between two parties to continue a seemingly ruined relationship.

Hortense Ellis also did her own version of her brother's song entitled "I'm Still In Love with You (Boy)", which was later done by Marcia Aitken. Aitken's version of the song featured a slight but noticeable difference in vocal pitch from either of the Ellis' versions. Sasha's vocal patterns more closely resemble Marcia's interpretation than that of the Ellis'.
