Rap-Up TV: Jay Sean Gives His ‘All’ on New Single with Pitbull

Jay Sean is betting big on his next record. The Cash Money crooner could barely contain his excitement while speaking about his Pitbull-assisted single “I’m All Yours,” set to drop in the next month.

“It’s gonna be a smash and I’m saying it right now because the video is insane,” he told Rap-Up TV at Cash Money’s pre-Grammy party in Hollywood. “We shot it in Miami—yachts, helicopters, speed boats, all of that good stuff.”

The song will appear on his upcoming fourth album, which he likened to his 2011 mixtape The Mistress.

“Half of the album is R&B. It’s slow jams,” he explained. “It’s the kind of stuff I’ve been dying to do, but never had the chance. But the way I looked at it, I’ve been 10 years in the game now, it’s about time that I can get a little sexy on this album.”

Fans of his dance floor-ready hits like “Down” won’t be disappointed though. “Of course I’m not gonna not give them the other side of me, which is the fun side of me—the party guy, the guy who just likes to enjoy himself.”

Alicia Keys Holds 8th Annual Black Ball with Swizz Beatz, Usher, & will.i.am

Alicia Keys and Usher

Alicia Keys was the belle of the ball at the 8th Annual Keep a Child Alive Black Ball at Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City on Thursday evening (Nov. 3). The Grammy-winning songstress, who co-founded the non-profit organization, shimmered in a gold top, cream-colored blazer, and gold pointy-toe heels as she posed on the red carpet with her husband Swizz Beatz, who looked sharp in an all-black tux.

“I am overwhelmed by the kindness I witnessed last night at the eighth annual Black Ball NY,” said Keys, who raised over $3 million for children and families affected by HIV/AIDS in India and Africa. “I am forever grateful to all of our supporters whose generosity will provide AIDS treatment and care for so many in desperate need.”

Queen Latifah, Tyra Banks, Gayle King, Kerry Washington, Carmelo Anthony, and La La Vazquez were among the stars who dressed up to honor the spiritual, musical, and philanthropic legacy of the late George Harrison.

Guests were treated to performances by Usher, Norah Jones, will.i.am, Jay Sean, and more. The “Fallin’” singer joined Usher and Richie Sambora on The Beatles’ “Here Comes the Sun” and closed the night by singing “I Gotta Feeling” with will.i.am, as her mother and brother danced onstage.

New Music: Jay Sean – ‘The Mistress’ [Mixtape]

The Mistress

Jay Sean shows America a lesser seen side on his R&B-infused mixtape The Mistress featuring appearances from Lupe Fiasco (“Say Yeah”), Tyga (“Sex 101”), and Birdman (“Love”). The Cash Money crooner shares stories of lust, infidelity, and love triangles on the 15 sexy, edgy tracks produced Orange Factory Music.

“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.”

Jay Sean kicks off his North American co-headlining tour with Joe Jonas tonight in Boston.
