Sean Kingston is a product of his past, the rapper’s history helps describe his sound. Born in Miami, Florida, then raised in Kingston, Jamaica from the age of six, he mixes more than a little dancehall and reggae into his hip-hop. The hard lyrics come from a hard life, which included incarceration, homelessness, and growing up a lot faster than he should have. His more polished, smoother, and less hardcore stance suits the singer and figured heavily into his self-titled debut full-length album. His sophomore release, Tomorrow arrived in 2009 and featured the singles “Fire Burning,” “Face Drop,” and “My Girlfriend.” In 2013 the single “Letting Go (Dutty Love),” with special guest Nicki Minaj, appeared, along with his third album, Back 2 Life.

During the concert the crowd went wild when he performed his 2007 debut single “Beautiful Girls.” The song samples Ben E. King’s classic “Stand by Me”. The song is about a boy who is suicidal over the failure of his relationship with a “beautiful girl”. It is Kingston’s signature song.
