Jay Sean flips the switch on the Bille Woodruff-directed video for “Hit the Lights,” a lead single from his fourth album Freeze Time, due July 5. Cash Money’s British import busts a move against a CGI cityscape as lights flash across the screen, slowing it down for a dance break and make-out session with a sexy video vixen. His YMCMB fam Lil Wayne, Birdman, and DJ Khaled make appearances. Light speed ahead.
Jay Sean was joined by his YMCMB family, including Birdman and DJ Khaled, on set of the video for “Hit the Lights” featuring Lil Wayne. Shot against green screen, the Bille Woodruff-directed clip is the newest single from the British singer’s fourth album Freeze Time, slated for a May 10 release.
Jay Sean ignites the dance floor on “Hit the Lights,” the new single off his fourth album Freeze Time. The club-ready record features a party starting verse from his YMCMB boss Lil Wayne, who he collaborated with on 2009’s No. 1 hit “Down.” “If you like, your friend can join in/ Wildest flower in the garden/ Coolest ni**a in the party,” raps Tunechi Lee. Join the celebration below.
Tomorrow some of your favorite celebs will die for the cause. Alicia Keys, Lady Gaga, Justin Timberlake, Serena Williams, Swizz Beatz, Kim Kardashian, Usher, Diddy, Janelle Monáe, and Jay Sean are among those pulling the plug on their social networking sites to help raise $1 million for Keys’ Keep a Child Alive foundation. In an attempt to help those afflicted with HIV/AIDS in Africa and India, the stars will appear in coffins, representing their digital death.

It may be the dead of fall in the Northern Hemisphere, but in Australia summer is just getting started. Ciara, Akon, Jay Sean, Ja Rule, Flo Rida, and Travie McCoy jetted overseas to heat up the season at the Summerbeatz Music Festival in Perth. The international stars performed their hits to thousands of Aussies in the Land Down Under. Check out the scorching action below!
After partying with Nicki Minaj like it’s “2012,” Jay Sean links up with another member of his CMYM family, Birdman, on “Like This, Like That” from his upcoming album Freeze Time, which has been delayed to February 22, 2011. With its sparse electronic beat, the moody club track puts the Londoner in romantic mode, with lyrics aimed at getting the girl.
“You’re gonna hear a side of me which America hasn’t heard yet,” Jay told Rap-Up TV of his fourth project. “It’s the more R&B, slow jam side of me, the stuff that I used to do on my older albums. It’s just a nice mix between pop-R&B.”
Soulja Boy may only be a ripe 20 years old, but that only makes his trip down memory lane more convincing on his segment for MTV’s “When I Was 17.” The S.O.D. Money Gang chief recalls moving from Georgia to Mississippi with his father, flipping patties at Burger King before blowing up with his hit “Crank That,” getting suspended for three days following a bathroom brawl, and more.
Jay Sean dished about hooking up with his “2012” collaborator Nicki Minaj when we caught up with him at the MTV VMAs. “She’s someone that I think is so dope,” the dapper singer from across the pond told Rap-Up TV. “I respect her as an artist, I respect her as an MC. For her to really be feeling my music enough to want to spit on it was a big compliment.”
His second U.S. album Freeze Time, due in November, will also include collaborations with Pitbull and an “amazing joint” with Birdman. America will get to see another side to him on the record, which is a return to his roots. “It’s just a nice mix between pop, R&B.”
And Jay plans to continue his British invasion with the follow-up single “Break Your Back,” which he describes as “something that’s slightly for the clubs, something fun, something slightly more urban leaning.”
