Though Sean Kingston sounds convincingly distressed on the “Somebody call 911!” opening line of his latest single, you can put down your cell phone and breathe a sigh of relief—there’s not actually a Fire Burnin’, it’s just that a certain shorty’s smooth moves have set the dancefloor figuratively aflame. As on his last featured cut, I’m At War, the singer uses an attention-grabbing central metaphor to discuss his favorite subject—the ladies—but this time around the focus is on booty-shaking lust in the club, not heartbreak. As Kingston describes the female who’s had him transfixed since he set foot in the club, Red One, the producer whose bangin’ boardwork backed several of Lady Gaga‘s recent singles, does his damndest to make sure nobody at the spot will be able to stand still, serving up a high-octane mix of crunchy synths and thumping bass. An infectiously energetic record with the potential to ignite the charts as well as the clubs, Fire Burnin’ will be included on sophomore LP Tomorrow (due out soon).
