Product Description

Product Description

If Sean Kingston weren't 17, baby-faced, and blessed with a voice like Akon's but sweeter, "Beautiful Girls"--the airwave-dominating, maniacally catchy ditty off his debut album that finds him wallowing over a long line of babes bent on dumping him--might have bombed. It's the package that makes the song, and the many others like it on this destined-for-hugeness disc, work: Take away the youthful pout and the song's innocence dissolves. Take away the lively straight-outta-Jamaica lilt and its summery vibe suffers mightily. Thrown back in, though, these elements bond like KrazyGlue; tracks like "Me Love," which fiddles with Led Zeppelin's "D'yer Mak'er" in a looser way than "Beautiful Girls" fiddles with Ben E. King's "Stand By Me," adhere forcefully but playfully to the same part of the brain that Rihanna had been reigning over till now. Still, Sean Kingston's strongest track may be its standout duet--"There's Nothin'," with Paula DeAnda doing her best junior Mariah impression, chugs along as though it's been doused in August sunshine. It'll make a fan out of anybody. --Tammy La Gorce --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I read the mixed reviews from amazon.com before purchasing this cd and thought I'd give it a try, especially since I liked his rendition of 'Beautiful Girls'. I have to admit there was one thing that was annoying with this cd. On a number of his songs, when they start, his name 'Sean Kingston' gets repeated over and over again. (I believe that occurred in at least 3 songs, possibly 4.) I can understand if he was performing these songs live, but gees....I already know who this singer is so the repetition of his name at the beginning of the songs, really dampened any enthusiasm I had for this artist unfortunately.

Fun For the Moment! Aug. 7 2007
By Josephll - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
17 year old Sean Kingston (Kisean Anderson) is rather cute, he doesn't look like the average singer. A bit heavy, but showing his charm by always smiling. He's from Florida but his family is Jamaican and it's said that his uncle is Buju Bunton, Kingston himself uses both American and Jamaican accent. On his debut album he hooks up with producer Jonathan Rotem that produces most of the album. The sound is a mix between reagge, hip hop, doo woop and dancehall. Rotem uses alot of samples, on the superhit "Beautiful Girls", currently at #1 he samples Ben E King's "Stand By Me" but he uses the sample better then most people that sampled it in the past. Kingston sings about beautiful girls but he'll get suicidal when it's over. Particulally the use of the word "suicidal" for "very sad" is hard not to notice. "Me Love" that samples Zeppelin's "D'yer Mak'er" is another great summer smash while "I Can Feel It" samples Phil Collins "In The Air" but with less catchyness. On "There's Nothing" we'll find Paula DaAnda appearing, as one of very few guest appearences here. It's actually the sample-heavy commercial feel good songs that works best where Kingston uses his Jamaican accent and show his incredible charm. The more hardcore Hip Hopish songs where he sings in American-English are not as fun, Like the song "Drummer Boy" or "Kingston" or the annoying "I Ain't Got No Short" but thankfully those songs are in minority. There are 13 songs and a bonus remix of "Colours". What makes this album fun is the hybrid of feel good sound and catchy wordplay on lyrics. It may not be original but compared to simular artists, Kingston is here to have fun and not to get respect and as catchy as the music is, it's hard not to like it. Question is, if anyone will remember him in 2 years?.

Unique Sound, Caribbean Hip-Hop, Great to Groove to June 20 2009

Sean Kingston has a unique sound on this CD. Almost all of the songs are good. It is upbeat but not too wild. I really enjoy this CD.

Rip off Aug. 5 2007
By Zelie Nic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
You know, when I first heard the "Beautiful Girls" song, I thought it was catchy... cool song. Then I saw Kingston on the Today show and I thought "cool, maybe this kid will be then next Prince Buster." Kid had a band, a double bass, and all the players were to the nines...

Man, was I wrong. I've listened to most of this album. I know a lot of people have pointed out that "Beautiful Girls" is a rip from "Stand by Me", and they're right... but the song's good enough that I can overlook that. The rest of the album though... Rip off...

Don't believe the hype...or IS there any? Feb. 28 2008
By Anthony Rupert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
When I first heard "Beautiful Girls" on the radio, I was like, "Who is this butchering Ben E. King's `Stand by Me'?" Then I saw the video, and after I looked at Sean Kingston, I asked, "What's Kenan Thompson doing singing?" All jokes aside, Sean's self-titled album is, well, okay.

I hate to admit it, but "Beautiful Girls" actually grew on me (although I don't understand why MTV blocked out "suicidal" yet they had no problem playing "I had to shoot him dead" from Maroon 5's "Wake Up Call"). Anyway, "Me Love" is pretty interesting too. But when you listen to the album as a whole and especially when you hear Sean talking, you'll realize he's trying to pull a Shaggy: only PRETENDING to have a Jamaican accent (although to his credit, he did spend much of his preteen years living in Jamaica).

But back to the album. There are a lot of missteps on here, like the annoying "Got No Shorty" and the confusing (and aptly titled) "That Ain't Right". "I Can Feel It" lazily borrows Phil Collins' "In the Air Tonight", and you would get slapped silly if you ever sang "Your Sister" to a girl; speaking of hard-to-relate-to songs, "Take You There" talks about touring his girl around violent neighborhoods. And Paula DeAnda outshines Sean on "There's Nothin".

There are also a couple of songs that don't go anywhere: "Drummer Boy" and the obligatory we-are-the-world song, "Change". And the final track, "Colors" (a revamped version of an independent track Sean did), is an incoherent mess of a song featuring Kardinal Offishall and Vybz Kartel. You have no business buying Sean Kingston's album if you're over the age of eighteen, so if anything, only buy it as a birthday present for your little sister.
