Jay Sean - The Mistress - Review

Where do I start?

Well I can still remember the days when I used to sing along to "Eyes On You" and wiggle my hips to the "Oh-oh your body's whining, oh-oh oh-oh bumpin' and grindin." I know right, I cringed at the thought too!

Since then, Jay Sean has come an awful long way since his debut album "Me Against Myself" back in 2004. Being one of the few British artists to conquer the US, Jay Sean has paved the way for other artists and has shown us that whilst it might not be the easiest thing to do, you can make the music that you want and still be highly successful. Regardless of him having being the first British artist to be signed to Cash Money Records, the first UK Urban Act to reach number 1 on the Hot 100, and the first artist of South Asian decent to reach number 1 on the Hot 100, he certainly is no finished yet!  

"If the next step after America was the moon, I can guarantee you I'd be on the first rocket there." - Jay Sean

Despite all of his success, it seems as though there is still time for a freebie, and I'm certainly not complaining! At the same time as giving something back to his fans, his latest mixtape entitled 'The Mistress,' reminds us of just how talented this singer/songwriter really is. The first and last tracks on the mixtape were purely created by Jay Sean himself, and by this I mean no instruments, no backing track, just beatboxing! If that's still not enough for you, the mixtape features Jay Sean's cover of the legend Bob Marley's "Waiting in Vain." If you have not yet been enlightened to this cover, you have definitely been missing out! Each and every time that I hear it, it sends shivers down my spine and even if that track is the fundamental reason that you choose to download this mixtape, it would be a pretty good one! You can download the "The Mistress" by clicking here and I thoroughly hope that you enjoy it as much as I do! (Find the Waiting in Vain cover below)
