History[edit]

On 15 October 2008, Jay Sean announced that he had signed with American Hip-Hop label Cash Money Records, on the back scene at MOBO Awards. Jay explained “It’s always been a dream for me to sign to an American label. And it’s great to be accepted by the best in the game.”

The single includes a remix featuring rapper Lil Wayne, as Cash Money Records is releasing a remix in order to introduce Jay Sean to the American market. However the remix was canceled, and Sean recorded a new single for the American market called "Down" featuring Lil' Wayne.

My Own Way: Deluxe Edition was released on 16 February 2009 in the U.K. was set for release in the U.S., however the idea has been shelved and Jay Sean is working on a new album for the American market. The lead single is "Tonight" which was released on 26 January 2009. The album also has 2 additional songs, "Never Been In Love" and "I'm Gone", and 4 additional remixes.

On 21 April 2009, Harj D released a remix for "Tonight", called "Tonight (XS-Bass Remix)". The remix is the first exclusive remix after XS-BASS latest album Amplified which came out in 2008.[1]
