"I'm All Yours" is a R&B-hip-hop song by British artist Jay Sean. The song was released in North America as the first single from his second album there, Neon. In other markets, including the UK, the song serves as Jay Sean's lead single from his fourth studio album.[2] The single features American rapper Pitbull and is produced by Orange Factory Music.[3]

"I'm All Yours" had its radio premiere on 18 April 2012. The track was officially released to US radio on 22 May 2012 and digital retailers on 29 May 2012.

Background[edit]

In February 2012, Jay Sean revealed at the Cash Money’s pre-Grammy party in Hollywood that a brand new single, I'm All Yours featuring Pitbull, is coming. He told Rap-Up, "It’s gonna be a smash and I’m saying it right now because the video is insane". He further added "We shot it in Miami—yachts, helicopters, speed boats, all of that good stuff".[4]

Speaking in May 2012 to MTV News Jocelyn Vena, Jay explained the background to the track, "Well, you know, people who know my music, especially when I first came over to America, one of the first things that people noticed with my songs is I like to do feel-good songs. And when it comes to the singles, that's what I like to give them. And 'I'm All Yours' is really the epitome of all that". He further added, "So it's still got that element of romance, which is what I like to bring to music. So it's high-energy and romantic. And the Pitbull collaboration actually happened in Australia, where we were on tour together, and you know, we're all fans of each other. We got talking, like, 'Man, we should do something.' So we laid it out right there and then". Further he said "I think the thing is, you got someone like Pit and myself, we share similar fanbases, but also, as I said, it's that high-energy music that really blends well together," he said. "And I think sometimes certain voices and certain vibes and certain styles just work together on a record, so it was just nice the way it came out"[5]

Leak[edit]

The song along with the artwork was leaked on 20 April,[6] but it was soon taken down by IFPI. However, Jay uploaded the artwork on his Facebook account later that day.[7]
