Jay Sean Announces New Album and Kamouflage Entertainment

March 12, 2013

The sun won’t be the only thing shining bright on the third Tuesday of May for international pop/R&B artist, Jay Sean. His future is already looking bright and with the release of his newest album, Neon! Before the release of a new album, it’s always expected to get a single or two before the release date; while we aren’t positive how many singles Jay Sean will be releasing before May 21st, we can confirm the first single is on its way! The single, “Where You Are,” is set for release on March 19th, so be sure to check that out on iTunes and listen for it on the radio; it’s practically guaranteed to be a song that requires a jam-sesh while cruising down the highway in the fresh spring breeze!

After signing with Cash Money/Republic in 2008, Jay Sean’s most recognizable song to date is “Down,” his collaboration with label-mate Lil’ Wayne, released in 2009. “Down” sold 6 million copies worldwide, hitting the top of the Hot 100 chart. “Down” reaching the top of the Hot 100 chart made Jay Sean the first solo artist of South Asian descent to accomplish that goal and the first UK Urban Act to top the Hot 100. Selling 6 million copies worldwide also made him the most successful British/European male artist in US chart history. While I can’t predict the future, I have a good feeling that Jay Sean will be claiming a few more titles with the spring release of Neon.

Jay Sean has already given us a preview on what’s to come from his sophomore project with Cash Money/Republic. His song “So High,” is currently sitting at Number 5 on Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart. “So High” will also be featured on Neon. In case you haven’t heard the song or checked out the music video, it’s posted right below, so be sure to check that out. The video begins with Jay Sean tied to a chair, surrounded by water and a backdrop that looks like absolute paradise. “So High” is the ultimate dance party song and if partying with Jay Sean is anything like the video portrays, someone tell me what kind of strings need to be pulled to party with the London-native!

In such a fast-paced world, being a singer and songwriter just isn’t enough sometimes. Jay Sean has teamed up with his business associates Jeremy Skaller and Thara Prashad to form a new label, Kamouflage Entertainment. Kamouflage Entertainment now has offices in New York City and Los Angeles where they’ve already signed three different acts. Kamouflage’s debut project is Australian prankster group, The Janoskians, with a slated release of the first quarter of 2013 through Sony Music. Kamouflage Entertainment has also signed UK X-Factor finalists The Fairground and urban production duo Da BeatFreaks.

Jay Sean is getting his feet wet in just about every possible industry and we don’t see him stopping any time soon. Be sure to keep up with him at JaySean.com and follow him on Twitter at @jaysean.
