Sean Kingston was born in 1990, in Miami, Florida, however, when he was a child, Kingston’s family relocated to the capital of Jamaica, Kingston. In Jamaica, Sean Kingston studied at the high school located in the Ocho Rios town. Kingston’s teenage years were filled with legal issues, as he was accused of burglary and, as a result, had to spend several weeks in jail. Around the same time, his mother was imprisoned for identity theft, while Kingston briefly had to live in a car. However, Kingston’s life turned around for the better when he was contacted by Tommy Rotem, who noticed his talent on Myspace website. Rotem offered him a record deal, and soon afterwards Kingston came out with his hit single “Beautiful Girls”, which was followed by the release of his self-titled studio album. Following the success of his debut work, in 2009, Sean Kingston released “Tomorrow”, his second studio album, which spawned such singles as “Fire Burning” and “Face Drop”. Unfortunately, the album failed to repeat the success of “Sean Kingston”, as it only peaked at #37 on the Billboard 200 chart, and sold slightly over 13 000 copies during its first week. Nevertheless, it did not prevent Kingston from releasing two mixtapes, namely “Yesterday” and “King of Kingz”, as well as a third studio album entitled “Back 2 Life”, which featured guest appearances from such artists as Chris Brown, 2 Chainz, Wiz Khalifa and T.I.
