Kingston rose to fame with his 2007 hit "Beautiful Girls" and was also featured on songs by artists including Justin Bieber. His self-titled debut album sold over 1 million copies worldwide.
In a 2007 interview with The Associated Press, Kingston described his music as a fusion of reggae, pop, rap and R&B."
It's Sean Kingston genre. I have my own genre," Kingston told the AP at the time. "No disrespect to no artist or dudes out there. I feel like I am my own person. I am doing my own thing."
Since the crash, musicians including Bieber, Rihanna and Nicki Minaj have posted messages of support for Kingston on Twitter.
