Sean Kingston is a little more mature than the 17-year-old who made a big splash in 2007, but he’s still enchanted with beautiful girls. The cuddlesome Jamaican Romeo’s second album, Tomorrow finds him looking for love — or at least company for the evening — in all the club places. His lighthearted, dancehall-flavored R&B is engaging, if somewhat repetitive with its chantable choruses and recurring themes.
Producers such as mentor J.R. Rotem, Lady Gaga collaborator RedOne and Wyclef Jean give Kingston plenty of party-starting beats with which to work, and he makes the most of them.
After scoring three top 10 pop hits with his self-titled debut, Kingston proves that his appeal hasn’t waned with first single Fire Burning, a thumping, synth-fueled dance jam in which he marvels at a shorty so hot, he needs somebody to “call 911.” He also has found success with the follow-up hit, Face Drop, about getting the last laugh on a superficial ex-girlfriend who poked fun at his pudginess.
His fun-loving manner and the pop sheen of his music make him more radio-friendly than most of his island peers, meaning it’s likely there will be many bright Tomorrows in his future.
