NEW YORK–JAY SEAN joins forces with LIL WAYNE once more for their heart-stopping, hot new jam, “Hit the Lights”. Available on iTunes February 8th, 2011, the song is JAY SEAN‘s second single from his anxiously awaited new full-length album for CASH MONEY/UNIVERSAL REPUBLIC, FREEZE TIME, due out this spring.
“Hit the Lights” pairs the reigning maestro of pop R&B with the king of hip hop for an explosive and engaging event of a song. JAY SEAN smoothly sings a sexy chorus as LIL WAYNE tears through a fast, fun, and fiery rhyme that’s got true power and panache. Both performers brandish a charisma all their own, and their first collaboration since 2009’s mega successful “Down” is bound to become an anthem for 2011. Together, LIL WAYNE and JAY SEAN sold over 4 million downloads of “Down,” and everyone will want to “Hit the Lights” and get down as soon as they hear this…
“Hit the Lights” debuts on iTunes February 8th, 2011. In order to bring its magic to fans, JAY SEAN has lined up two very special tour dates with fellow UNIVERSAL REPUBLIC artist, ENRIQUE IGLESIAS. They’ll play New York’s legendary Madison Square Garden on February 5th and the Gibson Amphitheater in Los Angeles on February 19th.
In addition, JAY SEAN will be on the scene, attending the GRAMMY awards with fellow CASH MONEY/YOUNG MONEY label mates as well as NBA All-Star Weekend festivities in Los Angeles.
