“It doesn’t matter if we’re from a little place called Hounslow” Jay Sean told the BBC. “If you have some good music, you can make it anywhere.” That’s how the British R&B singer found himself collaborating with Lil Wayne, and climbing to No. 2 on the US charts — making him more successful in the USA than he is at home in the UK.

Journalists “Dude, we wouldn’t expect you, a little Brit, to be signed to Cash Money. They love the fact that we’re from two different worlds, and I love that as well,” Sean said. He gained the attention of Lil Wayne’s label after splitting from Virgin and then forming his own. [via BBC]
