Singer charts his rise to fame in special BBC Asian Network interview
FANS of global superstar Jay Sean will get the chance to watch a special in-depth interview with the singer on the BBC Red Button this week.
The singer met with BBC Asian Networks’ Tommy Sandhu during his recent visit to London to record the exclusive interview.
Recorded at a BBC Asian Network ‘In Conversation’ event at the BBC Radio Theatre, Jay reveals how he keeps grounded despite re-locating to LA and mixing with some of the biggest stars in music and film and talks about the inspiration behind his singing.
The programme includes archive footage shot over the past nine years for the BBC, including 1Xtra Live, Desi DNA and the BBC Asian Network, which charts Jay’s story leading to his ‘home coming’ at London Mela 2011.
BBC Asian Network has filmed exclusive performances of Hit The Lights, Do You Remember, 2012 (It Ain’t The End) and includes a performance of Dance With You, the track that launched his career, as he re-unites on stage with Rishi Rich and Juggy D.
Jay Sean talks about his latest project The Mistress which takes him back to his RnB roots in response to his fans and exclusively reveals plans about working on a new album with Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra.
Mark Strippel, Head of Music & Events said: “I think it’s important that BBC Asian Network celebrates the career of an outstanding British-Asian musical icon in real depth and quality. This special programme charts Jay’s career from his first-ever interview on the station to exclusive footage from his recent London Mela performance.”
