Sean Kingston has revealed all about working with Justin Bieber on their new single Eenie Meenie.
Speaking to MTV News on the phone from the US the 21 year old explained how the track came about. Sean said:
“Me and Justin have been friends for the past two years. So one day he was like ‘yo’ and said he wanted to do a record with me.
“I was like ‘let’s do it, I’m ready!’ and he came down over the Superbowl weekend and slept over at my house. We banged out a couple of records and Eenie Meenie was definitely the most special one.”
The song hit number 17 on the chart on Sunday and is likely to rise even higher this coming weekend. Asked how well he gets along with the teen hearthrob Kingston explained:
“Justin’s definitely a cool kid, man. I’ve worked with a lot of people but he’s definitely one of the most fun and young, like he reminds me of myself ‘cause I’m just like a big kid at the end of the day. He’s very happy and energised and hardworking too.
“I was 17 years old when I came out. I definitely could be a big role model to him, like a big brother figure to him.”
