Everything officially turned NEON on July 30th. Jay Sean‘s long-awaited fourth full-length album,NEON on Cash Money Records, landed in-stores and at all digital retailers on Tuesday, July 30th. It’s the most dynamic, diverse, and definitive effort yet from the multi-platinum R&B sensation.
Already, the current single “Mars” featuring Rick Ross has elevated him to new heights. It’s a sexy and slick space jam, floating to the heavens on the singer’s powerful falsetto just before a hulking verse from the MC. However, the rest of the album also sees Jay Sean evolve further. The title track coasts on a delicate acoustic guitar, allowing his voice to shine like never before.
Meanwhile, “Guns and Roses” remains an equally heartfelt and hypnotic love song, while “Sucka For You” flaunts intoxicating Caribbean flavor and “Miss Popular” exudes a seductive R&B swagger. Jay Sean joins forces with YMCMB label-mates Ace Hood on the bon-a-fide banger “All On Your Body” and Busta Rhymes provides his irreplaceable flow for maximum impact during “Break of Dawn”
In addition, Jay Sean teamed up with a myriad of producers including longtime collaborators OFM [Kevin Rudolf,Fabolous], Supa Dups [Bruno Mars, Drake], and Brian Kennedy [Chris Brown, Kelly Clarkson, Rihanna].
“NEON is my best work thus far,” comments the artist. “Being in the game ten years teaches you some things. I think that’s evident by my music on NEON. I don’t think I could’ve made a better album, and I am 100 percent satisfied. I’m sure my fans will be as well.”
Jay Sean stands out as a modern R&B leader. His sales exceed over 12-million-plus singles with five consecutive Top 40 Billboard singles “Down,” “Do You Remember,” “I Made It (Cash Money Heroes),” “2012,” and “Hit The Lights.”“Down” became the best-selling single by a British or European male artist in North America since Elton John’s“Candle in the Wind.” Over the past few years, he also touched down for captivating performances everywhere from Sri Lanka, Dubai, and Abu Dhabi to India, England, and Lebanon. Born in London and splitting his time between Los Angeles and New York, he’s an international superstar with a global mentality.
NEON is Jay Sean at his brightest. Get it now.
