Hailing from South East, United Kingdom, singer Jay Sean is preparing for the release of his independent album, My Own Way, this March. No stranger to the grind of an indie-album release, Jay’s debut LP, Me Against Myself, sold over 300,000 copies worldwide. On the newly leaked song, Just A Friend, Jay layers his vocals perfectly over a mid-tempo clap track. Nothing like the song of the same title courtesy of Mario, Jay’s vocal tone and harmonies are similar to those he cites on his MySpace page as his musical influences: Jodeci, Tevin Campbell and Aaron Hall. Although Jay Sean will only be promoting his new album in the U.K., enough buzz from DJBooth might change that quickly.
