Jay Sean Credits Lil Wayne, Plus Down Hits No.1 Booting BEP

Making history just weeks after hitting the top 10 with the lead single from his forthcoming album “All Or Nothing,” Jay Sean ousted the Black Eyed Peas to claim the no.1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 this week. Rising 2-1, Jay Sean’s “Down” is the singer/songwriter’s first entry on the Billboard Hot 100 and first to achieve success on the level of previous chart toppers Flo Rida and Chris Brown (“Run It”). While the song’s success is meteoric to say the least, Jay Sean tells Singersroom it was as different for him as it was for Lil Wayne. “I doubt Wayne would’ve got on “Down” if he didn’t like it,” says Jay Sean. “You know, he’s slow on “Down.” He’s completely different on it; showing a different side. It was nice for him to be on that…” “All or Nothing,” Jay Sean’s stateside debut is due in stores November 24. Click HERE for more of Jay Sean’s exclusive interview with Singersroom.
