Sean Kingston

Miami, Florida (2007 – present)

Kisean Jamal Anderson (born February 3, 1990 in Miami, Florida), better known by his stage name Sean Kingston, is a Jamaican-American reggae fusion singer and rapper. He released his debut single, Beautiful Girls, in May 2007 and it managed to rise to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and stayed there for three weeks. He released his self-titled debut album in June 2007, and then his sophomore studio album, Tomorrow, was released in September of 2009. He has plans to release his third studio album in 2010. In 2007, Kingston was the opening act for Gwen Stefani’s The Sweet Escape Tour and for select dates on Beyoncé’s The Beyoncé Experience Tour. Kingston also co-wrote Jason Derülo’s number one hit Whatcha Say.

Born on February 3, 1990, Sean Kingston spent his early youth in the Half Way Tree section of his parents’ hometown of Kingston, Jamaica – hence his name, before moving to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida at age six. By 1996, Sean’s love of music led him to a prodigious performance of Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You”, forever changing his path. “My mom heard me, and she started bringing me around to family members. Then, I graduated from singing, and started picking up rapping from listening to Ice Cube and Slick Rick.” The gangster raps of Cube and the storytelling of Rick the Ruler had a profound effect on the boy, who also was exposed to heavy doses of Buju Banton, Dennis Brown, and Rakim from his young parents. Not only did their music affect Sean, but so did their traits.
