Petz interviews Jay Sean round 2 ding ding

“Hit the lights” hits itunes tomorrow, Jay’s camp predicts this tune will be bigger then Down, only time will tell. 2011 has been kind to Jay Sean, he’s was on Nick Cannon’s “My P.O.V” (documentary TV program) which followed him all the way to his concert with Enrique Iglesias, at Madison Square Garden. UK Disney has him lined up to be a mentor to a youth who wants to break into the music industry and he’s gearing to release his new album “Freeze Time” later this year. We touched on Wiley’s comments against Jay Sean, but Jay seems like he wants to put the whole fiasco behind him. Should his fans follow his lead or has the issue gone far beyond Jay vs. Wiley? If you want my opinion, I have a feeling Rishi Rich and Timbaland will be the ones producing a new Desi tune for Jay.

Petz: Down sold 5 million copies, in your opinion what does “Hit the Lights” have that will make it surpass Down’s success?

Jay Sean: I’m not really looking at the amount of copies, chart positions and stuff like that for success.  I’m looking at it as a song that connects to my fans and the people. When I do my performances, when I sing a song at a concert, I realize what’s successful by the audience reactions. That’s how I know it’s made an impact. With “Hit The Lights” it’s a club record, it’s going to get hammered and battered in the clubs. That’s why I feel it will probably be heard more then Down.

Petz: Has Lil Wayne picked up on any of your British slang?

Jay Sean: I think so. I tried to teach Birdman some of the slang, Birdman ends up laughing at me because he finds it so hilarious. I think half the time I don’t know what they are saying with their New Orleans accent. Nicki (Minaj) has been picking up some lingo.

Petz: If Prince William and Kate were to invite you to sing at their wedding, which song from Freeze Time would you dedicate to them and why?

Jay Sean: Break Your Back (laughs) because that’s the perfect way to consummate their marriage!

Petz: Rishi Rich broke the news that he’s joining Timbaland’s production company, you have mention in the past you would love to add a Desi undertone to one of your track if it made sense. Could Timbaland and Rishi be the ones to produce a Desi undertone track for your new wave of fans and your long time fans to enjoy?

Jay Sean: Definitely! Rishi is amazing when it comes to doing that stuff. Rishi does it better than anyone I know, he understands Indian music, he’s crazy with the club bangers and Timbaland too. So with those two getting together, it’s going to be nuts!

Petz: I have to admit, the first version of 2012 I heard was the chipmunk version. It sounded awful, are you finding it to be difficult to keep your tracks under wrap here in the states?

Jay Sean: It’s not about being in the states; the problem is that it’s impossible to stop a leak. It takes only one person in this world, just one out of six billion, to have your song on the internet for the world to hear. That one person could be anybody, it could be the person delivering the CD to mix studio, or one of the engineers takes it home to show his friends, it could be anything! It can be when it goes to the plant to get pressed up and people just take it home. It’s just going to leak, there’s no way you can stop it.

Petz: With the UK AMAs coming up, do you think it’s fair to have up and coming artists go against you?

Jay Sean: What do you mean? Fair for who?

Petz: I’m just saying to put you in a category with Mumzy for example; do you think that’s fair? You have kind of out grown the AMAs.

Jay Sean: I look at it like this, I’m still so honored, and I’m very flattered that the Asian scene holds me up in that regard. They don’t treat me as if I’m acting like I’m bigger than them, the scene or anyone. They embrace me, the same way they embrace the Asian scene. I’m an artist who has had success, but I also come from an Asian origin. Is it fair to put Skepta up against Jay Z at the MOBO awards (Music of Black Origin) in England? They are put in the same category sometimes, I’m still flattered they would want to nominate me for awards and don’t think I’ve gotten too big for my boots.

Petz: If you were one of the youngsters participating in Disney UK’s “Aim High XD” which artist, not including yourself, right here, right now would you like to have as a mentor?

Jay Sean: Oh wow. That’s a very good question. I think Justin Timberlake. He has been around for such a long time, he’s seen every thing and nothing fazes him. He was a part of the Disney channel himself; he’s just grown up with it. There’s no experience, no event or no venue that he hasn’t encountered; he can give you advice on anything. I think the fact he sings, dances, acts and writes his own songs he’s very very very talented.

Petz: Do you think racism played a part in Wiley’s comments on Twitter on Friday?

Jay Sean: I’m not going to get into the Wiley thing. It was so ridiculous, it was so silly, so pathetic on so many levels that I ignored it. I wish my fans, I love them so much and it came out how much my fans love me, support me and they wanted to defend me. I love them for that, but I had to urge them to stop. It’s not worth it, you should always look pass these things, look above and beyond this kind of stuff.  It could only bring you up or down, if we participate and engage in it.

Petz: Do you wish Wiley took it up through Direct Message, would that have been better?

Jay Sean: Yes. Of course! Which is how we ended up dealing with it. At the end of the day, this is what the problem is with twitter and all the other social networks – it’s too public. Every thing is public and I’m an old schooler, I don’t mean in regards to age, I believe in certain things being precious to humanity, I believe in privacy, I believe in keeping some things close to your heart. I believe in having a conversation without worrying about being tape by somebody sitting next to you on their mobile phones. It’s a major invasion of privacy at times, I don’t think should be used like that.

Petz: Can you give us the inside scoop of what “My P.O.V” with Nick Cannon is all about?

Jay Sean: That’s basically a real fun project, I took part in where Nick and Nickelodeon followed me around for a few days, leading up to my performance at Madison Square Garden with Enrique Iglesias. I had my own flip cam, to film myself. It’s really meant to be real deep and insightful documentary – through my eyes. What you are watching on TV is being ME – what I see.

Petz: In the past, some of your  most successful singles have been one-syllable words, you have Maybe, Stay and of course Down – do you have another one-syllable title track in the making?

Jay Sean: I never thought about that. I do have quite a few one-syllable songs on my new album. Let’s hope they are just as successful!

I was only given seven minutes to do the interview, I had a few more questions to kind of wrap it up. But next time for sure!

It happens, one artist go against another artist, whether what they say is true or not, we can’t come to the conclusion unless we have both the facts. I do think Jay Sean and Wiley should of took this up on DM, but what’s done is done. However Wiley claims he’s not a racist, it’s hard to believe that when he tweets…

@ErumLvzJaySean yes u dickhead now what i will slap of ya dads turbin

Seriously, go on dissing Jay Sean and his fans, but when it comes to the South Asian culture and the religions, it’s best not to tread in those waters Wiley. Once you put it out there in the social media world, it’s done. Comments like this — it may not happen now but it will come back to bite you in the ass. I’m following your lead, the Jay Sean remarks is old news, start tweeting about your music Wiley. Give your new followers something to listen to.

The Beef Goes On…

If you were at work, on a plane, train or just bored, the hot Twitter topic (not really…) was the beef between Jay Sean and Wiley. Some call it jealousy on Wiley’s part. I call it stupidity on both sides, although Jay Sean has a lot more on the line where he didn’t let it drag on, but squashed it. It could of been handled through DM, Jay could of ignored it and Wiley could of gone back producing his beats (although he claims he can tweet and record at the same time) Brilliant! If you could remember a world before social network phenomenon, artists would take jabs at each other either at a club or on a MTV special. It was actually folks in the media to blow it out proportion, now with Twitter, you can leave it to the fans to let it go on for days. At least it didn’t end up as a trend topic, if it did, I would seriously have to question the IQ of the users on twitter. The lesson for any artist reading this, whether you are with Jay or Wiley, the one thing you should remember if you got beef with someone you don’t need to broadcast it on twitter… try dropping the person a text or email.

Wiley Says…
