Sean Kingston is the eponymous debut album by Sean Kingston, released on July 31, 2007. The album was produced by J. R. Rotem. Sean Kingston, with help from Evan Bogart, wrote the songs which range from the self-deprecating-schoolboy tale of lost love in the album's most successful single "Beautiful Girls" to the much deeper "Dry Your Eyes", in which he visits the hardship of watching his mother and sister being sent to prison at the age of 15.[6]

The album has been certified gold by the RIAA as of February 2008 with an excess of 500,000 copies.[7]

The album entered the U.S. Billboard 200 chart at #6 and fell to #13 the following week.[8] The album reached #2 on RIANZ in its second week.
