Since a child, I have lived and breathed music, but never had the actual chance to live my dream of writing about all things music. Now I can! Hope you enjoy my ramblings about music!

Sean Kingston bounces back with hot new release
Sean Kingston is back, and after recovering from a
devastating accident in 2011, he’s back stronger than ever.He’s already been enthusiastically welcomed;
when it came time to record the album, Sean’s friends T.I., Wiz Khalfia, Chris
Brown, Yo Gotti, Wale, Busta Rhymes and 2Chainz all showed up.Produced by Jonathan “J.R.” Rotem, Red One
(who produced Fire Burning) and new producers Nic Nac,“Back 2 Life” is a fiercely innovative album
that shows off Sean’s talent as a singer as well as his song writing skills.
“Back 2 Life is a really honest reflection of where I’m at in my life right
now,” Sean says. “I knew I needed to address some difficult things on the
album, but my goal was to do it in an upbeat sort of way.” Dedicating nearly
his entire life to music and achieving superstardom when he was just 17, Sean
Kingston has amassed an untold amount of experience as a singer/songwriter over
the years. On his third-full length album Back 2 Life, the 23-year-old builds
on that experience by immensely expanding his song writing role, nixing the
multi-producer approach of his last release, and pushing for a fresh new sound.
Like his 2007 self-titled debut (featuring the double-platinum breakout hit
“Beautiful Girls”) and sophomore album Tomorrow (featuring the smash singles
“Fire Burning” and “Face Drop”), Back 2 Life fuses reggae, hip-hop, R&B,
and electro to create melody-soaked pop. But on Back 2 Life, the
singer/songwriter blends his newly strengthened vocals with fiercely inventive
effects and hard-hitting live instrumentation - a formula that’s yielded his most
passionately inspired work to date.
