Five new tracks...
Billboard reports that Sean Kingston has revealed five new songs from his album Back 2 Life on a Facebook game. The album arrives on September 10 through Epic. Fans can listen to the songs and watch an animated Kingston perform them on the concert game Play GIG-IT.
Kingston said: "I got signed off Myspace, so i've always been about the Internet. I think that's the way I'm evolving -- communicating with my fans and really taking it to another level."
Once the player selects an artist and song, they can choose the artist's clothes, back-up dancers and venue. Others can be invited to view the concert. The songs available include "Hold That" (featuring Yo Gotti), "Smoke Signals," "Ayo (16th Floor)," "Save One For Me," and "Bomba". They will be available to stream until the album is released. Other artists who appear in the game are Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, Kendrick Lamar, Nas, and 2 Chainz. More are on the way.
Kingston added: "Being away for two years because of the jet ski accident, I wanted to come back and really make a statement. I'm not going to drop my biggest record first because you don't do that. You gotta warm up, get the people's attention back, open their ears up and hit them with a big smash, you know? Right now, 'Beat It,' my single featuring Chris Brown, that was just to let people know I'm back. I'm 23 now. I'm not the same young kid no more. I got a record with Wale called "Seasonal Love" and we just shot a video in Miami. Then I'm going to drop the big international record."
"Beat It", his last song, peaked at #5 on R&B Songs and #52 on the Hot 100.
