Jay Sean Explains Why 'Neon' Isn't A Typical Cash Money Album

(Radio.com) It's been a long wait, but Jay Sean is finally releasing his new album 'Neon,' and he spoke all about it, how he's excited to show America a new side of himself, and more with the Diva Nikki Z.

UK rapper Jay Sean is not quite the stereotypical Cash Money artist, but part of that is based on the dual nature of Sean's fame, which is quite different in the USA and abroad. "I left my grills in the car," Sean joked with Nikki Z. "Of course I'm gonna be a bit un-stereotypical, but that's why they [Cash Money] signed me. They were like 'Man, this dude just does what he does, and he speaks in this funny accent.' To them, it's funnay as hell– they still don't know what I'm talking about half the time."

The label just released Sean's new album 'Neon,' an album packed with R&B jams quite different than what American fans may be used to from the party rapper, which Sean believes is more in line with his first UK-based albums, and the type of music that caught Cash Money's attention in the first place.

"I had my first record deal ten years ago in England. So I had a worldwide fan base, except I never had a deal in America," the rapper recalled. "So the rest of the world knew my music. They came across a video of mine called 'Ride It,' and it had crazy views. Of course, they're business minds, they're looking at this going 'How does he have so many views?' So we got in contact and they went 'Listen, we know you don't have a deal in America, let's put you out.' That's what happened."

Now, ten years later, Sean is set to release his latest project, 'Neon.' "I'm so looking forward to this, it's been a while in the making, but I got this right," he said of the long awaited album. "Neon is something different for America. If you know me as that guy who sings 'Down' and "Do you remember' and '2012,' the fun party guy– if that's what you know me as– then you're gonna be a little surprised when I switch it on you in this one." A lot more.
