Singer, songwriter and rapper Sean Kingston loves to celebrate his birthday in Las Vegas. When he turned The Big 2-1, he toasted the milestone with his mother, among others, at Tryst in the Wynn. Last year for his 22nd, it was at the short-lived RPM Nightclub at the Tropicana.
On Friday night, Kingston hit Chateau Nightclub in Paris Las Vegas for the annual festivities. Arriving after 1 a.m., Kingston headed to a VIP booth on the main stage, where he was joined by friends including Soulja Boy.
About 1:30 a.m., Jamaican sensation Kingston was presented with a three-tier birthday cake resembling the cover of Kingston’s latest single “Rum and Ray-Bans” and adorned with red, yellow and purple skull-like designs and embellished with green Ray-Bans. As confetti flew through the air, Kingston admired the cake and gave a thumbs-up approval.
About 2 a.m., Kingston appeared at the front of his table and began his birthday performance, which included “Take You There,” “Fire Burning” and “Letting Go.” Toward the end of his set, Kingston handed the mic to Soulja Boy, who performed “Turn My Swag On” as Kingston sang along. Afterward, Soulja Boy addressed the partygoers and said, “Everyone make some noise! Happy Birthday, Sean!”
After the performance, Kingston returned to his VIP area and spent the night sipping champagne, meeting fans and dancing. Thanks to David Becker of WireImage for his photo gallery.
