Hot New Jamaican Teen Star Sean Kingston

Sean Kingston, the Jamaican teen from Miami, made his way up to Toronto to talk to Faze (and do a few other less important things, like attend the MMVAs).

How did you get discovered?

Sean Kingston: “I put my music on MySpace, and I got in touch with producer J.R. Rotem. I sent him three emails and finally he replied. I came to L.A., and the deal was done.”

Is the song “Beautiful Girls” inspired from real life?

“Yeah, man. I was in a relationship for two years with this girl in Miami and she cheated on me with my best friend. The song is about how all I wanted was her, but she gave me dirty. Girls can be beautiful, but they come with a lot of headaches.”

What was your life like before fame?

“I went through a lot in my life before. My mom was incarcerated, I was homeless at one point, my dad was never there. But being through a lot has helped my music.” What’s next for you? “I just want to keep making good music. This is my dream, and I’m getting closer.”
