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.

New Music: Jay Sean – ‘The Mistress’

Jay Sean

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”).

Rap-Up TV: Jay Sean Freezes Time with Pharrell, Readies Mixtape

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.”
