*New York City – Global superstar JAY SEAN has released his new mixtape “The Mistress,” a 15-song downloadable album available at www.facebook.com/jaysean.
“The Mistress” presents JAY SEAN’s musical talent in a new way as he expands his horizons as a performing artist. The lead track, “Where Do We Go,” recalls the likes of highly successful crooners Brian McKnight and Babyface, modified by an edgy and unique swagger that only JAY SEAN himself could incorporate.
“The Mistress” also features appearances by notable hip-hop heavy hitters Lupe Fiasco (“Say Yeah”), Tyga (“Sex 101) and Birdman (“Love”). While he adds to his musical repertoire with this release, JAY SEAN proves he will continually produce great music that appeals to a plethora of fans, but keeping his style fresh and noteworthy.
The Mistress showcases JAY SEAN’s love for R&B music and a side of him that has rarely been heard by his American audience. His sultry smooth vocals over sexy, edgy production (courtesy of his production partnership with Orange Factory Music) tell stories of lust, infidelity, love triangles and love throughout this collection of R&B songs.
JAY SEAN is famous for fusing together R&B, pop, and dance, three of the most popular genres in today’s music, to create mega-hit anthems. His first single “Down,” featuring rap icon Lil Wayne, rose to the top of the charts quickly, boasting over four million downloads. His next hit single, “Do You Remember,” featured Sean Paul and Lil Jon and became another chart-topping smash. As a prequel to his new album Freeze Time (set to be released in 2012), JAY SEAN again collaborated with Lil Wayne on the hit single “Hit the Lights,” which, because of his loyal fan base, hit the top 10 on the iTunes singles chart before the track got radio play.
Praised for his ability to bridge the gap between separate genres of music, combining them in a manner that defies imagination, JAY SEAN is a noted songwriter, winning a BMI award for penning the song “Deal With It” for actor/ singer/ dancer Corbin Bleu. His passion and commitment to his music is the greatest ingredient in every single track past and present, which explains his astounding success. Since JAY SEAN has been catapulted into a musical brand, his recently being dubbed “The King of YouTube,” is no surprise. The multi-platinum selling, internationally loved performer recently reached yet another milestone in his career when his video for “Down” reached well over 100 million views on YouTube. This came on the heels of him being named the “Most Watched UK Artist” on YouTube with 250 million overall views on the video sharing website.
The release of The Mistress also coincides with the recently announced co-headlining tour of JAY SEAN and pop superstar Joe Jonas that kicks off at the House of Blues in Boston, Massachusetts on September 6th.
JAY SEAN has landed into an esoteric group of artists whose music is championed as the best of the modern day. His voice and style are highly recognized worldwide and with the release of each song and album, it further cements his accreditation as a recording star. The Mistress will be no different as JAY SEAN again proves his musical artistry is always worth a listen.
