As one of the most celebrated singers and songwriters in Britain, Jay Sean owes his rise to fame to his unique style and exceptional singing voice, which never fails to captivate his listeners. The RnB crooner began experimenting with music in his youth when he formed a hip-hop duo called Compulsive Disorder with the help of his cousin.
Jay has been working in the entertainment industry since 1999 and today enjoys worldwide popularity among music lovers. The young artist began with a one-minute track with the support of producer Rishi Rich, but his big breakthrough came with the Asian Underground song title “Dance With You”. He later released several singles on Virgin Records, which he eventually left to start his own record label in 2006, popularly known as Jayded Records. His single entitled “Maybe” made it to number 7 on the Japanese Hot 100 list, and in the UK he has received several prizes and awards for his amazing voice.

His father Sharan Jhooti and mother Bindi Jhooti, who had immigrated to London from their native India, gave him the name Kamaljit Singh Jhooti at birth, but the need for a stage name led the young singer to adopt the name, Jay Sean.
Jay Sean attended Latymer Upper School, where he graduated with honors from his General Certificate of Secondary Education with excellent marks in biology, chemistry, and mathematics.
