It’s summer 2007 and there is a song blaring from every radio station, car and cell phone within earshot…”You’re way too beautiful, girl…” starts the song. What song is that? Who is that artist? The world would soon come to find out. It was the teenage Sean Kingston and his irresistible, unavoidable tropical tale of love, “Beautiful Girls.”
His self-titled debut Sean Kingston was certified Gold by the RIAA in March, 2008. Sean was also featured on Natasha Bedingfield’s recent hit “Love Like This;” in fact, his own “Take You There” and “Love Like This” climbed the radio and iTunes charts together giving him back-to-back hits in January. His pop star status and universal appeal was noted by the Kidz Bop franchise as well as both “Me Love” and “Beautiful Girls” appear on the, best-selling Kidz Bop, Vol. 13 released in February ‘08 and the rest is history.
