Video: Jay Sean – ‘Where You Are’

Jay Sean

Jay Sean has been gone for a minute, but he makes up for lost time by dropping two videos in one week. After linking up with DJ Pauly D in “Back to Love,” the Cash Money crooner debuts the lighthearted video for his own single “Where You Are.”

The Hannah Lux Davis-directed clip was shot in the Skid Row area of downtown L.A. earlier this month. While on his way to meet his date, the British heartthrob encounters all types of obstacles including getting coffee spilled on him while he rides the bus and being turned down by the bouncer at the bar.

“I’m going on a date, I’m late for the date,” Jay told Fuse. “I wake up late, hung over from the night before, and then everything that could possibly go wrong and every obstacle that could come in my way, comes in my way. But I’m still determined to get to where the girl is to get to where you are.”

He’s done over 30 videos, but this one represents him the best. “I’ve never done a video that is fully in line with my personality,” he said. “I’ve never had the chance to just be silly and be fun. Deep down inside, I just like to enjoy life and be silly.”

The song serves as the first single from his upcoming album Neon, due May 21. “The album is the best piece of work I’ve done to date, without a doubt in the last 10 years,” he told Rap-Up TV. “This album is a mixture of R&B, of pop, of some rock influence as well, of hip-hop influence. It really took us a long time to get it right, but I’m so proud of it.”

Video: DJ Pauly D f/ Jay Sean – ‘Back to Love’

Jay Sean and Pauly D

DJ Pauly D hits the runway with Jay Sean in the video for his debut single “Back to Love.” The “Jersey Shore” star flirts with the models backstage at a fashion show, while his Cash Money co-star has his eye on one particular girl.

“I’m really interested in all the models and Jay’s the one who’s falling back to love,” said Pauly, who came up with the concept himself. “He sees a girl that he knows and she’s one of the models, so there’s a lot of feelings going on over there, and I’m just checking the chicks out.”

Pauly is signed to 50 Cent’s G-Note label. “Working with 50 and being signed to G-Note is one of the most amazing things that ever happened in my life,” he told Rap-Up TV. “50’s a great guy, very hands-on in everything that he does. He’s very smart.”

Watch love make its way down the catwalk.

New Music: Jay Sean – ‘Where You Are’

Jay Sean

Jay Sean keeps the romance alive on “Where You Are,” the first single off his upcoming fourth album Neon. The charming Cash Money crooner doesn’t want to spend a moment apart from his lady, singing her praises on the breezy guitar-driven tune.

The follow-up to 2009’s All or Nothing is due May 21. “The album is the best piece of work I’ve done to date, without a doubt in the last 10 years,” he told Rap-Up TV. “This album is a mixture of R&B, of pop, of some rock influence as well, of hip-hop influence. It’s just all of the great genres that I love and I grew up on in one. The songwriting and production on this album is superb. It really took us a long time to get it right, but I’m so proud of it.”

Rap-Up TV: Jay Sean Announces New Album ‘Neon’

It’s been over three years, but Jay Sean is finally ready to release his fourth album. “As you all know, the album has been taking a long time. I think it’s about four-and-a-half thousand years so far,” joked the British singer on the red carpet at Cash Money’s pre-Grammy party earlier this month.

The follow-up to 2009’s All or Nothing is done and awaiting a release date. “The album is finally finished. We handed it into Cash Money at the beginning of the year,” he told Rap-Up TV.

The delay is due to a lawsuit that prevented him from releasing music, plus he was taking his time to perfect his sound. “I had to figure out what makes it different. I didn’t want to put out singles that could’ve been sung by Chris Brown or Usher or Ne-Yo. It had to be unique to me and that took me a minute to really understand.”

He also exclusively revealed that the album will now be called Neon (It was previously titled Worth It All). “The album is the best piece of work I’ve done to date, without a doubt in the last 10 years,” said Sean. “This album is a mixture of R&B, of pop, of some rock influence as well, of hip-hop influence. It’s just all of the great genres that I love and I grew up on in one. The songwriting and production on this album is superb. It really took us a long time to get it right, but I’m so proud of it.”

The first single, “Where You Are,” is expected to drop within the next month. “It’s a beautiful song,” he said.

Jay Sean can also be heard on DJ Pauly D’s new single “Back to Love.”

Jay Sean had late night rocking to his sounds when he visited “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” on Tuesday. Looking dapper in a white tuxedo jacket, the Cash Money crooner got the crowd pumped up as he performed his summertime single “I’m All Yours” off his upcoming album Worth It All.

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Jay credited the Internet for launching his global career. “YouTube I literally have to thank for my entire career and my global fan base,” he said. “My global fan base was literally channeled through YouTube. That one website also taught me how popular I was at a time when I didn’t know I was that popular.”
