The Independent Culture

In case you're wondering what happened to Jay Sean, the British-Asian singer from Hounslow, since his initial success in 2004, the answer is that he got dropped by Virgin, continued having modest hits on an indie and has suddenly become massive in America, where his single "Down" has sold two million copies.

On the accompanying album, Kamaljit Singh Jhooti leaves no R&B cliché unused. There's nothing British and certainly nothing Asian about it, making its probable success something of a hollow victory.
