Jay Sean Gearing Up to Release "Worth It All"
New Album Out Fall 2012
NEW YORK, Apr 30, 2012 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Multi-Platinum selling Pop/R&B sensation Jay Sean will release Worth It All, his fourth studio and his second album for Cash Money/Universal Republic Records this fall.
In the midst of fine-tuning and preparing the album for its debut, Jay Sean has been keeping himself quite busy. Since 2011, he's penned explosive songs for a wide variety of artists spanning a host of genres worldwide. Some of these include "Superstar" for famed Nickelodeon pop sensation Big Time Rush, "Boom Boom" for Australian X-Factor winner Justice Crew, "Moment to Love" for Australian Idol winner Tinomatic, and "That's My Girl" for UK X-Factor winner JLS. His influence can be felt across the spectrum right now, and the hottest names keep flocking to him for songs.
Continuing a streak of global jet-setting, Jay Sean has put on unforgettable shows everywhere from the United States to Australia and all the continents in-between. He's performed at the renowned Coke Studio in Lebanon, super hotspot Chi in Dubai, at the Formula 1 Races in Abu Dhabi, and many more sold out shows including India, Africa and Europe.
While recording this next studio effort, he's also carved out time to give back. In an effort to help end child hunger, he recorded a very special song for ConAgra Foods' third annual Child Hunger Ends Here campaign. Along with Jewel and Owl City, he cut his own take of the original track "Here's Hope". Fans can download his version at www.ChildHungerEndsHere.com and see exclusive behind-the-scenes content. Consumers can receive the song by entering the code found on participating packages at their local grocery store. For every code entered, one meal is donated to a child in need helping them not just to survive, but even thrive.
As a teenager, Jay Sean had a passion for Hip Hop and R&B, in particular, soul singers, Boys II Men, Stevie Wonder and Mary J Blige. He started songwriting at the early age of 13. By the time his first album released in 2004, his small group of London supporters grew to be a global fan base. However, it was only after the release of his second album, in particular his international hit "Ride It", that caught the attention of Cash Money CEO Ronald 'Slim' Williams. He was signed as the first British artist on the label, and his debut single became Cash Money's first Billboard Hot 100 number one single.
Jay Sean already has three internationally known albums, several awards, and a large amount of Top Ten hits internationally. He has collaborated on tracks with Cash Money co-founder Bryan 'Birdman' Williams (Written On Her/Like This Like That), as well as with label mates, Wayne (Down/Hit the Lights), Nicki Minaj (2012 It Ain't the End) and Tyga (Sex 101).
