The Black Eyed Peas’ Reign Over The Hot 100 Is Done (For Now, Anyway)

jaysean The Black Eyed Peas’ Reign Over The Hot 100 Is Done (For Now, Anyway)Yes, it’s true: Jay Sean’s Lil Wayne-assisted R & B track “Down” will be your No. 1 single beginning tomorrow, evicting the Black Eyed Peas from their 26-week run at the top of the Hot 100 and answering the question plaguing many will.i.am-weary chart-watchers for so, so long. The question, of course, is this: Can you hum a few bars of the British crooner’s debut single? Sure, it may be the most-played-song on radio, but that doesn’t necessarily mean “widespread recognition” in 2009’s crazy pop-music marketplace. A video of the track, and a few fun facts about the singer with which you can impress your friends at parties, after the jump!



I love that the beat of the track kind of screams “This Song Is By A British Singer.” A few other things to note about Jay Sean:
• His real name is Kamaljit Singh Jhooti.
• He is 28 years old, and started writing rhymes when he was 11.
• He has two studio albums and a live record out already in the U.K.
• His third album, All Or Nothing, will serve as his U.S. debut when it comes out on Lil Wayne’s Cash Money Records in late November.
• Yes, it’s going to have a Drake cameo.
• Also, songs “about tough relationships,” according to Billboard.
• He’ll be sharing a bill with the surviving members of TLC at Justin Timberlake’s Shriners benefit concert next week.
• There are claims that people “jokingly” refer to him as “the South Asian Ne-Yo.” While a Google search doesn’t quite bear that out, it did unearth a clip of him singing “So Sick”:
