First look: Sean Kingston's new CD

Seankingston_l_2

Seankingston_l_2Jamaican rapper/R&B singer Sean Kingston is working on the follow-up to his 2007 self-titled debut CD. It’s called Tomorrow and features assists from Stephen Marley, Polow Da Don, and J.R. Rotem, who produced Kingston’s ubiquitous 2007 hit “Beautiful Girls.” But while he’s eager to complete the disc, which is due out in March 2009, he recently took a break from recording to go on a South African safari adventure. Kingston was scheduled to call me today to give me more details about his new music during a layover in Lagos, Nigeria, while en route from Cape Town to Los Angeles, but his cell reception was terrible and we were never able to make it happen. (His loss!)

At any rate, based on what we do know, does this sound like a winner to you? Do you think he will ever be able to top or at least match the success of “Beautiful Girls”?
