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.”
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 suited up and joined DJ Pauly D on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” for the first performance of their collaboration “Back to Love.” The Cash Money crooner worked the stage as the “Jersey Shore” star worked the turntables while delivering the fist-pumping record, which appears on Pauly’s upcoming G-Note Records debut.
No one knows how to get a party started like DJ Pauly D. After making a name for himself on MTV’s “Jersey Shore,” 50 Cent signed the reality star to his label G-Note Records. Now he’s ready to take control of the clubs with his own dance floor anthem “Back to Love,” the first single off his upcoming debut. He teams up with Jay Sean, who doesn’t skip a beat as he sings over the pulsing rhythm. Get your fists pumping.
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.”
Jay Sean is feeling freaky in the video for “Sex 101” featuring his YMCMB labelmate Tyga. The Cash Money crooner gets in the sheets with two women and makes love in the shower in one steamy scene, while Tyga makes a holographic cameo. The song can be found on Jay’s 2011 mixtape The Mistress. Look for his fourth album Worth It All later this year.
Jay Sean shares his love for animals in a new ad for PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals). Fresh off the release of his Pitbull-assisted single “I’m All Yours,” the Cash Money singer poses alongside a rescued mutt named Stella in the campaign, which encourages prospective pet owners to adopt instead of buying.
“There’s always a kid who wants to get a puppy or get a little kitten, and they might not know that they can actually go to a shelter to adopt one rather than going to a store to buy one,” said Sean, who used to have a dog. “They’re just as cute and they’re looking for a home. They want love, too.”
Jay Sean joins Waka Flocka Flame, Pink, Justin Bieber, Travie McCoy, Ryan Tedder, Mark Ronson, and Sean Kingston, who have teamed up with PETA to promote kindness to animals.
