Sean Kingston Biography:
Sean Kingston (born Kisean Jamal Anderson on February 3, 1990) is a Jamaican-American reggae fusion singer and rapper. He is best known for his debut single and #1 hit “Beautiful Girls”.
In a joint venture between Epic Records and Koch Records, Kingston recorded and released the single “Beautiful Girls” in May 2007. The single, based on the bass line and lyrical “association” of the 1961 hit “Stand By Me” by Ben E. King, reached number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 for three weeks and topped the UK Singles Chart along with many other international charts. Similarly, the song “Me Love” is a loose derivative work of Led Zeppelin’s “D’yer Mak’er”, from their 1973 album Houses of the Holy. The song also debuted at number one in Australia, where it knocked off Fergie’s “Big Girls Don’t Cry”, which had been at number one for nine weeks. The song stayed on the Canadian Hot 100 number one spot for over six weeks before getting knocked down to third place by the Plain White T’s. “Beautiful Girls” remained at number one in Canada longer than any other song in 2007. 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.
