The next big thing :Sean Kingston - Beautiful Girls

Sean Kingston is defiantly on his grind. I’m really feeling his single, “Beautiful Girls.” Kingston, does it all. He’s going to be a force within this industry. Just you wait and see. Kingston, a 17 year old native of Jamaica who now lives in Miami brings his very unique triple threat of talent of rapping, reggae chatting and soulful harmonization with the 2007 release of his debut yet to be titled album.“As an artist, my whole goal is to make powerful and classic music,” Sean divulges. “I want everyone to feel me and understand where I’m from and that’s what this album will do.

The music is all about an authentic Sean Kingston vibe. Kingston’s album is shaping up to be as diverse as the colors are on the different flags he talks about.

The melody of “Stand By Me,” also acted a muse for the first official single off the album “Beautiful Girls.” It is way more than puppy love when Sean lays his vocals on the record, singing about a shattering break up.

“You’re way too beautiful girl,” he sings about heartbreak. “Girls will have you suicidal when they say it’s over.”

“I heard the track ‘Stand By Me,’ one night in the studio, the radio was on. “I asked J.R., did anybody ever flip that? He made the beat the beat right there on the spot and I wrote the songs in a few minutes. It’s hard when you’re in love and a girl tells you that it is time to end things. I know everyone can relate to that, so that’s why I had to write about it.”

“Drummer Boy” finds Kingston sticking mainly to rapping over the trouncing pounce of drums, while “I Can Feel” takes it to the party and incorporates a sample of Phil Collins’ timeless “In the Air Tonight.”

Perhaps one of the most eye opening track however may the song “Prosecutor,” where Kingston vents about what he calls the wrongful imprisonment of his sister and mother. “You’re lying and there’s no way to prove it,” he fumes.

Sean says he was inspired to write the record after he saw his family incarcerated when he was just 15 years old.

“I always had my sister and my brother,” he began to explain. “My brother was always there, but he was out in cali!. When my mother and sister went away, it took a lot out of me. My sister went away for four months and my mom been away for over a year. When she went way, I was like ‘nah man, this is too much.’ I was only 15. I missed her like crazy but I pulled through and used it as my motivation. “Prosecutor” is a defining song on the album for me – nothing fake about it because it touches on something very personal to me. The dope melody that’s on there makes me feel even closer to it.”

Kingston wants to make it clear that he is no cookie cutter artist that has the songs laid out for him. He comes up with 100 percent of his lyrics.
