Birth name: Kamaljit Singh Jhooti
Indian-British, of Indian decent
British R&B singer/songwriter Jay Sean is notable for being one of the first British-Asian crossover stars and also for his international popularity, including five consecutive Top 40 singles in America.
Me Against Myself (2004), his debut album, became a Top 30 hit in the U.K., spawning a pair of Top Ten hit singles (“Eyes on You,” “Stolen”); plus, the album became an even bigger hit in India, where it was a chart-topping success and went multi-platinum, thanks in part to Sean’s appearance in the Bollywood film Kya Kool Hain Hum (2005).
