Sean Kingston is expected to make a full recovery within six weeks from injuries sustained in his jet ski crash on Sunday. This is very good news for the hip-hop singer, who arrived at Jackson Ryder Trauma Center in Miami on Sunday night in critical condition with a broken jaw, fractured wrist and water in his lungs. According to CNN's sources, Kingston was still in "critical but stable condition" yesterday at the hospital's intensive care unit.

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
