Lupe Fiasco connects with his pal from across the pond, Jay Sean, on “Say Yeah,” a cut off the British singer’s mixtape The Mistress, dropping Tuesday. The Cash Money signee sings in a falsetto over the breezy beat, while Lupe kicks a laid-back verse. Listen to the radio rip below.
Jay Sean is creeping on the side on the title track off his upcoming mixtape The Mistress. The Cash Money crooner can’t fight the feeling despite his guilt. “No I just can’t leave my mistress/ And why do you feel like something that I shouldn’t hide/ I just can’t leave you alone,” he laments.
“For me, it’s my new passion project,” the British singer told Rap-Up TV. “It’s a little nod to throwback R&B, the stuff that I grew up to. It’s just fun. It’s not going in there and over-thinking anything. It’s just doing some stuff that I wanted to do, perhaps doing some stuff that America hasn’t heard. It’s showing the other side of me. It’s my other love, my hidden love.”
Due September 6, the 15-track download features appearances from Lupe Fiasco (“Say Yeah”), Tyga (“Sex 101”), and Birdman (“Love”).
Jay Sean showed up to support his friend Pharrell at the launch of his Qream liqueur last week. The Cash Money signee was recently in the studio with Skateboard P working on his new album Freeze Time.
“We did three songs together over the last couple of weeks for my new album,” the British singer told Rap-Up TV. “While music is changing so much, he’s keeping up with the trends, but he’s still making sure he doesn’t let go of what makes his music his music. It’s got that unique Pharrell sound.”
He also shared details about his upcoming mixtape The Mistress, due next month. “For me, it’s my new passion project,” he explained. “It’s a little nod to throwback R&B, the stuff that I grew up to. It’s just fun. It’s not going in there and over-thinking anything. It’s just doing some stuff that I wanted to do, perhaps doing some stuff that America hasn’t heard. It’s showing the other side of me. It’s my other love, my hidden love.”
And for those patiently waiting on Freeze Time, Jay assures that it’s coming. “End of the year, definitely.”
Jay Sean panders to the ladies with the video for “Like This, Like That,” the latest single from his upcoming album Freeze Time. The Cash Money crooner cozies up to a young woman as lights beam down on him in the performance scenes. A slightly less wealthy Birdman flies by to make a cameo.
Jay Sean asks “Where Do We Go” on the first release from his mixtape The Mistress featuring acoustic renditions of original songs and his spin on some beloved classics. The Cash Money crooner tries to put back the pieces of a broken relationship on the stripped-down ballad, which is also accompanied by a video of him in the studio, cruising in his Bentley, and walking on the Miami streets. His 4th studio album Freeze Time is due later this year.
Lil Wayne scored major points with his female fans with his new Carter IV single “How to Love.” The Detail-produced slow jam has already gone to iTunes and here’s a look at the single artwork. Turn around, Weezy.
Jay Sean reps for his label on the posse cut “YMCMB Heroes” featuring Tyga, Busta Rhymes, and Cory Gunz. The track, which serves as an urban remix of the British singer’s “Hit the Lights,” touts an industrial beat where he flexes his rhyming chops in between verses from his guest stars.
“Too many million sales that be up on my plaques/ On the walls of my crib as a matter of fact/ Yes it’s me, come all the way from overseas/ Took that spot from the Black Eyed Peas/ Number one Billboard entry,” he sing-raps. Listen to the anthem below.
