Jay Sean Calls Drake the Next Kanye

R&B singer-songwriter Jay Sean is bestowing praise upon his Cash Money/ Young Money cohort.

Drake’s labelmate is comparing him to a certain over-the-top rapper. “He’s very talented. I look at him as like the next Kanye,” Sean tells Rap-Up.com. “He’s got this young female audience into him and that’s the lane you need to stay in because it seems to be working. He’s the next big thing.”

Drake may make an appearance on the 26-year-old Brit’s second single, but he’s remaining tight-lipped. “I don’t want to say anything until it’s all final.”

Jay Sean’s U.S. debut All or Nothing features the Lil Wayne-assisted smash “Down,” and will be available November 24.
