Even though he respects Usher, “Down” singer Jay Sean appears to have taken offense to the “OMG” singer’s comment that he and fellow UK star Taio Cruz have a lot of work to do to get to his level. Admitting that he’s had just one album in the United States after a successful chart-topping run in Europe, Jay Sean took Usher to task in a recent interview, stating “Outside of America, maybe Usher doesn’t know that I’ve been touring and recording for seven years.” “This [next album] is my fourth studio album. I’ve had a couple of multiplatinum albums on my own record label. But he wouldn’t know that if he didn’t do his research or nobody told him.” According to MTV, Usher told UK’s Wrap Up Urban Blog, “they (Sean & Taio Cruz) have a lot to prove.” Nonetheless, Jay Sean has begun work on a follow up to his 2009 album, “All or Nothing” and is ready to show Usher and others that he has staying power… “I’ve got so much more to show them, so much more to give them,” he says.
