British Indian, Singer/songwriter Jay Sean emerged in the American Pop music scene a decade ago with his Billboard Hot 100 #1 single “Down,” after having already spent five years prior making waves overseas. The Pop music titan changed the game Stateside for both Asian and UK acts alike, hitting historical strides and breaking down multiple doors as a solo artist.
Incredibly, Jay was the first Asian artists in history to have Billboard #1 in America. He was also the first Asian and first British artist to have two simultaneous top 10 Billboard singles. To add another feather to his success-cap, Jay is also the first British and first Asian artist to have a Spanish Language #1 in America. In short, Jay’s career of firsts makes it clear that he is truly a “1 of 1” type star.
