Sean Kingston – Sean Kingston


Sean Kingston - Sean KingstonSony, 2007

If you’re like me, Sean Kingston’s first 2 singles were stuck in your head for the entire summer. Even if you don’t want to admit it, I am sure at some point you caught yourself humming along and perhaps even singing along with the hook in “Beautiful Girls”. If that is the case then, like me, you will be disappointed with the rest of the album. Who knew that for the most part Sean Kingston rapped about guns and gangsters? Well you would if you had bothered listening to his mixtapes or checking out his myspace page. This works out alright on a couple of tracks, such as “Colors” featuring Kardinal Offishall among others, but basically the 17 year old is taking himself waaaaayyyy too seriously and would be better off sticking with his more lighthearted and infinitely more enjoyable fluffy songs. Let’s hope he’s more believable as Notorious B.I.G., who he is set to play in the upcoming biopic, than he is as a gangster.
