I’m alive and kicking, says Jay Sean

Singer Jay Sean wants fans to know he is back on the music scene after a three-year hiatus – and more importantly, still alive. “I do understand that in this day and age if you disappear for too long, people think you actually died,” the British singer and songwriter said. “People will think, ‘I haven’t heard his song on radio for a few years, he must be dead.” After a five-year relationship with Cash Money Records, where his label mates included Lil Wayne and Drake, Sean parted with the company in 2014 amid a bitter legal dispute. “I could not talk about it. There’s a lot of things we can’t talk about, legally,” he said. Now signed to Sony, he called the split “civil” and said there was no bad blood between him and label co-founder Bryan “Birdman” Williams. The summer release of Sean’s new single, Make My Love Go, brought him back to what he loves and grew up with: pop, R&B and dance hall. It was also a return to creating music with rapper Sean Paul, 43. The single has had more than 38 million plays worldwide on Spotify. – Reuters
