Pop sensation Sean Kingston is back strong with “Rum and Raybans,” the first single from his upcoming album release, “Back 2 Life.” The track produced by The Elev3n is a vibrant take on Sean’s signature blend of reggae, hip-hip, R&B and electronica, and features pop princess Cher Lloyd.
The video for “Rum and Raybans” includes a cameo from Sean’s friend Chris Brown and had an auspicious debut, streaming live worldwide during Coca Cola’s Red Carpet Live at the 2012 American Music Awards (online at www.cokemusic.com). Sean, who’s previously demonstrated his admirable on-air chops, will co-host the show. On November 19th the video will premiere on VEVO (www.vevo.com/watch/sean-kingston/) and the single will be available on iTunes on Nov. 19th.
Sean’s new music represents his recovery from the devastating jet ski accident in May of 2011. “I wasn’t able to go anywhere for two months, so I spent all of my time writing songs and listening to beats,” Sean says. “All I wanted to do was get back to my music, which is what I’ve been devoting my life to since I was 7 years old.”
Sean Kingston has reached superstardom selling an astonishing 10 million singles, including multi-platinum selling singles “Eenie Meenie” featuring Justin Bieber, “Fire Burning, “Take You There,” “Beautiful Girls” and “Letting Go” featuring Nicki Minaj.
