Since becoming the first South Asian artist to hit the number 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart with his single Down in 2009 Jay Sean’s career has gone from strength to strength touring in places across America. Recently he has performed in Pontiac, Las Vegas and Kazakhstan.
Making his entrance in Surrey the Cash Money star headlined the fourth annual Fusion Festival and wowed the audience singing his latest singles such as Do You Remember, Hit The Lights, 2012 and Down. A part from singing his latest singles Jay Sean sang other tracks giving a mixture of his music such as Eyes On You, Maybe, If I Aint Got You, Dance With You, which saw the artist singing in Punjabi and Ride It which gained him the attention of Cash Money Records.
Jay Sean also has connection in Surrey where his aunt and uncle, Indy and Sarbjit Sabharwal live and spent time before his career had risen.
“He’s my sister’s son,” explained Indy. “It’s fantastic; we’re just really, proud of him. Seeing him go through the stages of working up to where he is now. I’m nine years older than him and I’ve sort of raised him [in London].”
Surrey is known to be a community of celebration in music, food and culture. Organizers of the event had expected between 80,000 to 100,000 guests but due to the bad weather it had drawn in about 60,000 people.
