Jay Sean Talks "Where You Are" Music Video: "By The Time I See My Date, I'm A Complete Mess" (EXCLUSIVE!)
We recently caught up with Jay at the music video shoot for his latest single, "Where You Are," off his upcoming album, Neon.
"It's actually a romantic song," Jay told us, "A lot of people have been describing it as uplifting and mellow at the same time."
Jay shared with us that he's done over thirty music videos in his lifetime. So what was the approach this time around? "The one thing I realized now is that I'm pretty much doing the same thing in the music videos," he said. "Pouting, trying to be cool and sexy, I've done that a million times."
But for "Where You Are", he wanted to show people something different. "How about let America and the rest of the people see the other side of me," Jay said, "The side of me that my best friends and family knows, the fool and joker in me."
Ultimately in the music video, Jay sums it all up: "Obstacles, obstacles, obstacles come my way and by the time I see my date, I'm a complete mess."
Jay also told us what the holdup was with Neon, "I wanted to make an album where people say, 'It might have had taken him three of four years, but it's a classic', it's a masterpiece to me and that's what I wanted to do for my fans."
