“2012” will be out on iTunes on August 3rd and the video will be debuting on MTV August 8th! Nicki Minaj is featured on the track. The bootlegged version was hijacked and put on youtube. It was quickly taken down and replaced with an instrumental track. The song made it’s radio debut on the Panjabi Hit Squad show,  with Rav and Dee, on the BBC Asian Network. It’s been making its way on the airwaves here in the states…check out the behind the scene videos of 2012…

Jay Sean inspires South Asian Politicians



Picture 52

OR do the South Asian Politicians inspire Jay Sean? I think it’s a two way street in this matter, as we reported on Saturday, Jay Sean went to speak at a conference for the Indian American Leadership Initiative. Over six South Asians are running for Congressional seats here in the States. In his speech, Jay Sean talks about his own struggles making it into mainstream, even his own critics questioned the deal between “Cash Money” and Jay Sean. Would it turn sour like the Virgin Record deal? So far… “all izz well” Check out his speech….

Jay Sean going political?

It seems like Jay Sean is taking interest in South Asians in American politics… is he following Mallika Sherawat lead in her upcoming film Politics of Love? Is he planning to run himself? (little problem with UK citizenship — but he can become an American citizen!) The Indian American Leadership Initiative conference is taking place today at Georgetown University. Jay Sean will be participating in the closing reception “Behind the Mic: Jay Sean and the New Er of Indian Americans in Politics” maybe he will give them an encore and sing “My Own Way”

Over six Indian Americans are running for Congressional seats, that’s the largest number of South Asians running in US history.

“I am really excited about participating in the IALI conference this weekend, I’m proud of these pioneering South Asians being celebrated for their individual talents and gifts, and happy to lend my support.” says Jay.

Over the last couple of years, since Jay “made his own way” to Cash Money records, folks in and out of the Urban/Desi industry have snickered “Jay has sold out” “He has forgotten his South Asian roots” “He doesn’t consider himself Punjabi” and “Cash Money has gone to his head”

That couldn’t be farther from the truth, I think he’s proud of his South Asian heritage, we should be celebrating the fact more South Asian artist are breaking into mainstream. Look at Aslam? He might be linking up with Guns “n” Roses and Coldplay. We all have to make “our own way” to get to mainstream…

P. Cantell the “Persian Jay Sean”



Picture 43

One of my best pals Ellie, gave P Cantell this “Persian Jay Sean” label… when she posted his song “Iranian Girl” and I fell in love with it! The video, the style, the lyrics … no bitches… no hoochie mamas…no hoes… no baby mama lyrics… just pure and loving. The beats were amazing!!! Iranian Girl also features Sahand too.

Picture 45

I played this song on “The Junction” and I remember one of my listeners Goldy called up and loved it… and ironically a Persian man who was working the late night shift, who loves Indian music was surprised to hear a song with Persian lyrics. For me, music has no limitations – its a universal language that speaks to all of us.

P Cantell grew up in Iran, Germany and the US… he stepped into the scene with his song “A Million Shadows” that was dedicated to the struggle in Iran and the folks fighting for their freedom.

He doesn’t consider himself a political rapper, he wants to tell a story and put the listener in it, so they can sense all the emotions going into the story.  His album “A Journey To Iran” takes the listeners back to his homeland – each song depicts a tale of truth of his own experiences. You will feel like you are shoulder-to-shoulder with P Cantell on this journey.

Jay Sean new music video?




Last week, I posted that “2012” song by Jay Sean, which is suppose to be his new single. It’s already fumed disappointment, especially among the Prince fans who feel Jay Sean is biting off the “We are gonna party like it’s 1999”

According to Jay Sean’s tweet, he’s going to be in LA tomorrow to shoot a music video… do you think its for 2012?

Oh yes…. he also mention the Summer has “just begun” he better hurry up… we are approaching August!

We are gonna party like its… 2012?




I’m still partying like it’s 1999… you can’t walk through an isle in a book store, without some author banking on the “fact” the world is going to end in 2012, just like the whole y2k hype…I’m still here… and you are too… reading this blog… Jay Sean flipped 2012 around and has made it in another “we are gonna party like the world is going to end” track…remember though, this isn’t the “official” release… it sounds like a rough cut to me… like that time the bootlegged version of “Maybe” leaked… we heard “myspace” in one version and “facebook” in another… no word yet on when Jay’s new album is coming out, the crazy thing is I was just thinking the other day – Down was blasting every where… where is Jay Sean??? Enjoy this track….
