Kisean Anderson (born February 3, 1990), better known by his stage name Sean Kingston, is a Jamaican American reggae singer and rapper. Although he was born in Miami, Florida, he was predominantly raised in Kingston, Jamaica, after moving there at the age of six. His stage name pays homage to Kingston, Jamaica. Reggae superstar Buju Banton is a close friend of Sean Kingston’s family and gave him advice upon entering the music industry.
Kingston, through a venture between Epic Records and Koch Records, released the single “Beautiful Girls” in Summer 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. Similarly, the song “Me Love” is a loose derivative work of Led Zeppelin’s “D’yer Mak’er”, off of their 1973 album, ‘Houses of the Holy. The song also debuted at number one in Australia; where it knocked off Fergie who had been 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” was the longest a song has ever stayed at the number one spot in 2007 in Canada.
In October 2007, Kingston was the opening act for Gwen Stefani’s The Sweet Escape Tour. In 2007, he appeared in an episode of Yo Gabba Gabba.
