About Jay Sean
Hailing from London, England, Pop/R&B star Jay Sean began honing his craft from an early age and began to explore the possibility of making music a career as he entered college. With a positive response from friends and the organic development of a fan base that ranged from the UK to South Asia, Jay Sean released his debut album ME AGAINST MYSELF in 2004 on digital platforms. It was then that his music exploded on the internet and he began to tour throughout Europe and Asia. He became a major sensation and multi-platinum artist overseas, releasing two smash albums, two top ten singles and was nominated for Britain's heralded MOBO (Music of Black Origin) Award twice. One song, "Ride It" garnered 20+ million views on YouTube and captivated fans everywhere, including Cash Money Records CEO and co-founder Ronald "Slim" Williams. Jay Sean became the first UK artists to join the Cash Money family in 2008 and released his American debut album ALL OR NOTHING on November 23, 2009, which includes the #1 song on Billboard's Hot 100 and 3X platinum hit "Down" featuring Lil Wayne, and the platinum certified track "Do You Remember" featuring Sean Paul and Lil Jon. Further exemplifying his presence on the charts, Jay Sean had four Billboard Top 20 singles in his introductory year in the U.S. "Down", (#1 on Billboard's Hot 100), "Do You Remember" (#9 on Billboard's Hot 100), "I Made It (Cash Money Heroes)" (#21 on Billboard's Hot 100), and "Written on Her" (#17 on Billboard's Rap Chart). To date, Jay Sean has won 11 UK Asian Music Awards, including 'Best Male Act,' 'Best Urban Act,' 'Best Video,' ("Down") and 'Best Album' "ALL OR NOTHING," in 2010, a 2009 UK Urban award for 'Best Collaboration' for "Down" featuring Lil Wayne, and received past honors from MTV Russia Music Awards and UK BMI Awards. Jay Sean is gearing up to release his sophomore album this fall on Cash Money Records.
