"Dance the night away at Devon Lakeshore Amphitheater with Sean Kingston! Experience the magic of his chart-topping hits like 'Beautiful Girls' and 'Fire Burning' live on stage. Don't miss this unforgettable blend of dancehall, R&B, and hip-hop.

Sean Kingston, a Jamaican singer/rapper known for his fusion of dancehall, R&B, and hip-hop, gained prominence with his 2007 platinum chart-topper "Beautiful Girls" from his debut album, 'Sean Kingston.' His subsequent hits like "Take You There" and "Fire Burning" further solidified his presence in the music scene. A collaboration with Justin Bieber on "Eenie Meenie" in 2010 expanded his reach into the pop mainstream.

Born KiSean Anderson in Miami, Kingston's upbringing in Kingston, Jamaica, infused his music with dancehall and reggae influences. Despite facing challenges like incarceration and homelessness from a young age, his experiences shaped his gritty lyrical style.

Kingston's career took off after producer Jonathan "J.R." Rotem discovered him, leading to a record deal with Epic Records. His debut album achieved success, peaking at number six on the Billboard 200. Tours alongside artists like Gwen Stefani and Beyoncé further boosted his profile.

His subsequent albums, including 'Tomorrow' (2009) and 'Back 2 Life' (2013), showcased his versatility, incorporating dance-oriented Europop elements. Throughout the 2010s, Kingston focused on releasing singles, maintaining a steady presence in the industry. Collaborations with artists like Nicki Minaj, T.I., and Chris Brown added to his repertoire.

In 2021, Kingston released "Darkest Times" featuring G Herbo as the lead single from his fourth studio album, 'Deliverance.' His journey from a troubled upbringing to a successful music career continues to influence his music, making him a resilient figure in the industry.
