Sean Kingston - No Woman No Cry

Posted 8 years ago
Producer:
Jonathan "JR" Rotem
Album:
Unreleased

Teen reggae singer/rapper Sean Kingston took the States by storm this past summer with his break out hit, Beautiful Girls.  The song, which was produced by mentor JR Rotem, is an adaptation of the classic Ben E. King record, Stand By Me.  Since dipping into the past worked well once, why not try it again, right?  This time around Sean does without the lyrical switcharoo and simply records a cover of the classic Bob Marley song, No Woman No Cry.  While Sean is not Bob (and even he would agree), the teen phenom does a remarkable job of replicating Marley’s unique reggae chants and during the chorus harmonizes with multiple layers of his own vocals.  Though No Woman No Cry does not appear on Kingston’s self-titled debut, it will appear on the charts very soon.
