February 3, 1990 in Miami
Born in Miami, FL in 1990, but raised in Kingston, Jamaica, rapper Sean Kingston has since attained global success. Citing his upbringing in Jamaica as the main source for his unique and appealing sound, he offers audiences a perfect blend of reggae, pop, hip hop and dancehall sounds. However, his lyrics reflect something that his voice may hide - years of poverty, incarceration and even homelessness. His return to Miami is where his rise to fame began, entering talent shoes and writing his own material, he quickly caught the eye of studios. He was only in his teens with his first hit, "Beautiful Girls", and since then has enjoyed commercial and critical success.
Thoughts on Songs with Sean Kingston

They sampled "Stand By Me" for the intro and chorus of this song and although they don't use the lyrics from that song they are entirely appropriate. Falling in love, and getting so hung up on someone that they "mush up" your mind is something we can all relate to - even if we don't all feel literally suicidal we've all been there. Great song
