Jay Sean, the ubiquitous and chart-topping UK Pop/R&B singer who landed stateside with 2009′s “All or Nothing,” is set to release his Cash Money/Universal Republic follow-up “Freeze Time” in stores and on all digital platforms July 5th!. The highly anticipated album, the singer’s fourth, is the strongest realization of the singer’s vision to date: a lethal combination of pop, R&B and dance music that bridges the singer’s myriad musical interests.

The album’s first single was “2012 (It Ain’t the End),” featuring hotly-tipped rapper and singer Nicki Minaj, the moroseness of the Apocalypse is re-imagined as a celebration of life and love. Produced by Orange Factory Music (OFM), the same team behind Jay Sean’s domestic breakthrough hits “Down” and “Do You Remember” (featuring Sean Paul and Lil Jon), The single was released in August of 2010 and became another Top 40 smash when the single was certified Gold in the US and peaking at #20 on the Billboard Pop singles chart. “2012” was then followed by “Hit The Lights”, another dance hit that features his Cash Money Records label mate, Lil’ Wayne. The song is another produced by J Remmy & The Orange Factory. Jay was really excited to have “Hit The Lights” as part of his discography when it was released in February of 2011. He told MTV

“I’m so excited about this song, ’cause, for me, it’s the first time I felt like I did a huge club record, I always wanted to write a song that could be batted across all the clubs and on radio. And I think this is that song. It doesn’t need any remixes or anything like that.”

The third promotional single for Freeze Time is called “Like This, Like That” , and ir features Cash Money Records co-founder, Brian “Birdman” Williams. Birdman and his brother, co-CEO, Ronald “Slim” Williams  remembered signing Jay Sean to his American record deal with Cash Money/Universal Republic Records Group.

“We knew we had a rising superstar on our hands when we signed Jay Sean to Cash Money,” said Ronald ‘Slim’ Williams,. “He’s already proven it with ‘Down’ but I know Jay and he’s never one to rest on his laurels. The success of his debut album on Cash Money has only made him work harder this time around to ensure that he stays on top while still evolving as an artist.” The video for Jay & Birdman’s song released on Vevo earlier this month.

Freeze Time continues the incredible career ascent the singer has been having since his first album, Me Against Myself, was released in 2004. Since then, the singer has received worldwide acclaim, racking up countless awards, including an UK BMI award for Best Songwriter and two MOBO nominations, and has seen multiple songs reach #1 in everywhere from Russia to Japan to Australia.

A consummate hip-hop and R&B obsessive growing up in London, Jay Sean was pursuing a degree in medicine at the London School of Medicine and Dentistry when he was offered his first record label deal. After dropping out to focus on a career in music, the rabid fanbase he had built up locally quickly became a global phenomenon, as fans flocked to his mix of hip-hop, pop, R&B and South Asian sounds.
