Product Description

Product Description

'My Own Way' is the second album by British RnB star Jay Sean. Mixing slick RnB, hip hop and desi beats, this album picks up where 2004's debut 'Me Against Myself' left off. This is a fresh and confident follow up and includes the singles 'Ride It' ,current single'Maybe',and the forth-coming single 'Stay'.

BBC Review

From one angle Ride It - Jay Sean's comeback single from last year - saw the Hounslow-born artist in exactly the same place as he was when he broke through in 2003 with Dance With You: Talking about cruising the clubs and making eyes at the ladies. Yet from others he couldn't be more different, for where Dance With You bumped along on producer Rishi Rich's Desi beats the only obvious Asian influences in Ride It are the Eastern-tinged strings in this smooth r 'n' b groove, whilst cocksure confidence in the lyrical chat-up lines has been replaced by words and delivery that seem more wavering and vulnerable. Indeed, on the evidence of new single Maybe and plenty of other tracks on his second album Jay hasn't spent the four years since his debut Me Against Myself LP fighting off the hordes of females he's charmed with his moves, but rather disconsolately checking his mobile and Facebook for messages from that 'special someone' after she's stood him up agai! n.

The truth is actually rather different of course, for Jay has been building up his fanbase in the UK and India, racking up platinum sales many times over. Not that this was enough for his former record label Relentless, who were apparently unhappy with his new album, My Own Way, now being released on Jay's own label. For if Relentless thought they'd bagged themselves the first UK Asian rap and r 'n' b crossover star with his debut album, the follow-up suggests he's actually transformed into the Asian Craig David instead.

Recorded in New York and London with producers J-Remy and Duro, My Own Way contains not a single nod towards hip-hop save for I Won't Tell, and instead finds Jay singing in a voice so syrupy you could make a cake with it. Individually there's nothing wrong with the songwriting of tracks like Stay, but when everything becomes stuck around the same midtempo bump 'n' grind rhythm whilst Jay warbles about his women woes you might begin to suspect that the reason some girls seem to keep leaving him is simply because he's become a little bit dull. --Paul Clarke

I usually don't like albums by any artists, because there is a few good tracks, and the rest is rubbish. Well, with this one - it's almost all perfect tracks with a couple that's only 8/10. Make sure you listen to this. It's something that the radios haven't played to boredom - but it's just as good, if not better. I wish the artist would get picked up even more - as he would rightfully deserve, for this is mature, quality R'n'B material. I think it ranks among the best. Why? I can't tell. If I could, it would mean it fits a scheme. It doesn't. It's just good. Listen to it, and You'll know what I am talking about. If I ever chose someone to be the fan of, it would be Jay Sean for this album (even though the first one, "Me against myself" was great as well). The guy deserves credit - and You deserve quality music. You do the math!

Jay Sean's first album had a few good tracks but since then he has developed tremendously as a writer and this album is set to be a huge success in the RnB world! I love this album, it's smooth, good beats and altogether a great album. If you liked Jay's first album, you will fall in love with this album. A must-have for any RnB fan.

Jay Sean explained in a live radio interview how he tore up his contract and walked away from a work in progress commercial album and a big money deal to Record the Album he wanted to Record.

Thumbs up to Jay Sean for the courage to follow his instincts at the risk of destroying a fledgling career and going on to produce an album that wouldn't be out of place in Quincy Jones Back catalogue. This Guy is Talented.

If you like John Legend/ Jamie Fox/ R Kelly/ Corinne Bailey Rae/ Kelly Rowland/ Pink/ Brandy/ and Good Original Music in general, This album is highly Reccommended.

Not suitable for people who like bad music: slipknot/madonna/spice girls etc

Jay Sean's new album is definately for the RnB fans out there, there are some deep lyrics on it - its slightly different to his previous album and he has shown that he has grown as an artist, which I think is great. The tracks that are my favourites (at the moment) are Ride It, Maybe, Stay, Cry, Waiting and Just Friends. I do agree with the previous reviewer's comments on the need for raps on some tracks though.

Jay Sean should not be seen as an Asian trying to break into British RnB he has a deserved place in British RnB as a very promising artist. I hope to see more of him in the future.
