Sean Kingston’s “Beautiful Girls” is the debut single by the reggae-influenced musician released in 2007. The song samples “Stand by Me” a classic music by Ben E. King. The song talks about a boy who is suicidal (or rather “in denial” in the edited version) over the failure of his relationship with a “beautiful girl”. It is Kingston’s signature song.
The music video featured actor Tom Hardy who became friends with Kingston whilst living in Los Angeles in his early years of acting.
Rapper Lil Mama and actors Kenny Vibert and Lil’ JJ are featured in the music video directed by Marcus Raboy.
