Sebastian Fronda (born November 3, 1981, Hökåsen, Västerås) is a Swedish hip-hop artist. He released his first studio album in 2004, and toured Sweden in summer 2006. He then took a time-out from doing live performances to work on his next album, Fridlysta Frekvenser. The first single from that album was released on April 11, 2007. He made his stage comeback on the televised radio-show Radiogalan on April 29, 2007, along with Markoolio, Emilia Rydberg, and Sunrise Avenue.
Jonas Stentäpp of Dala-Demokraten has described Fronda as "one of the most entertaining hip-hop artists" in Sweden for his "heavy beats, unusually interesting choruses, and good flow in the lyrics." Fronda participated in the 2008 Melodifestivalen with the song "Ingen mår så bra som jag", saying that his participation in the contest was "a step in the right direction for me both as a human and as an artist. [Being in Melodifestivalen is] the biggest thing you can experience as an artist in Sweden." The song reached eleventh place on the Swedish Singles Chart in March 2008. Fronda was originally going to compete with another song in the 2007 Melodifestivalen, but was disqualified when he refused to sing the song by himself. He also participated in the 2004 Swedish celebrity version of Fort Boyard.
