Sean Kingston Says Near-Death Accident Inspired New LP 'Back 2 Life'

"I feel like God gave me a second chance at life," the Jamaica native tells Fuse. "He wants me to take things to the next level"

On May 29, 2011, "Beautiful Girls" singer Sean Kingston was in critical condition after crashing his jet ski into a bridge in Miami. Despite a fractured wrist, broken jaw and damage from water in the lungs, Kingston made a full recovery. The Jamaica native explained how the near-death experience inspired his new record Back 2 Life during an interview at Fuse HQ.

"Back 2 Life is me being like, 'I'm back making music!' But it's also more than that," he explains. "A lot of people know I was in a tragic accident two years back, I almost lost my life. I feel like God gave me a second chance at life. It wasn't my time yet. He still wants me to make music for my fans and take things to the next level."

The 23-year-old adds, "I'm really passionate person about my music and what I do. Now, I tend to slow stuff down and really concentrate. I work with every artist and producer I want and really make stuff from the heart."
