A new anthem for the summer.

Sean Kingston returns with the new single "Peace of Mind," which sees him linking up with the top-shelf crew of Davido and Tory Lanez.

"I feel like when people listen to Sean Kingston, it's summertime, it's spring break, and the weather is nice," he tells Billboard. "All you could think about is jet skis, boats, sipping a piña colada, you know just having a nice fun time.
