J-squared is ready to hit the road! Are you ready?!
British R&B singer and songwriter Jay Sean will be joining pop star and Disney Channel actor Joe Jonas on a nationwide tour this fall!!
Pop music superstars and multi-platinum selling recording artists, Jay Sean and Joe Jonas have announced they will co-headline a 19-city tour this Fall. Both artists have new albums coming out; Joe Jonas releasing his debut solo album, “Fast Life”, on Hollywood Records on Oct. 11 and Jay Sean dropping “Freeze Time” on Cash Money/Universal Republic on Nov. 22.
The tour, bringing both artists’ dance and R&B infused music to an intimate club setting, kicks off in Boston, MA on September 6th at the House of Blues and will visit major cities across North America including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Toronto and San Francisco.
Jay Sean, who is signed to Young Money Cash Money Records (YMCM) topped charts worldwide with songs such as “Down,” featuring Lil’ Wayne, and “Do You Remember,” from his U.S. debut album “All or Nothing”, which helped catapult him into a league reserved for just a few. Now, he is gearing up for the release of his fourth album, the highly anticipated Cash Money/Universal Republic follow-up “Freeze Time”, including the smashes “2012” with Nicki Minaj and “Hit the Lights” guest starring Lil’ Wayne. This latest project represents the strongest realization of Jay Sean’s vision to date: a lethal combination of pop, R&B and dance music that bridges the singer’s myriad musical interests. Jay Sean’s latest singles, “Like This Like That” (with Birdman) and the ballad, “Where Do We Go,” which is featured on his forthcoming mix tape, “The Mistress,” underscore the diversity of his talents and vocal ability.
In addition to creating timeless hits and performing in front of sold-out audiences all over the world, Jay Sean devotes much of his time and resources to various causes including HIV/AIDS, hunger and homelessness. He also serves as an ambassador for “Keep A Child Alive” and works with other non-profit organizations such as “Feeding America and Do Something”, as well as the “Get Schooled Foundation.”
“I’m super excited to be on the road with Joe and I think it’s going to be a great experience for me,” says Jay Sean. “The line-up is exciting. Joe has a loyal fan base as do I, so no doubt it’s going to be packed out! And there’s no doubt that the girls will come out for this one, so single gents should make their way down to the show too! Gonna be some fun shows! I can’t wait to kill it!”
Joe Jonas who is the middle Jonas Brother will be touring to support the release of his forthcoming Hollywood Records’ solo debut album, “FastLife”, in stores on October 11. The album’s lead single, “See No More,” was released in June and earned rave reviews from both Billboard and Entertainment Weekly. People Magazine recently included the song in their Hot Singles list. It was also just nominated for a Teen Choice award while the video for the song has racked up nearly 5 million views on YouTube and VEVO. Joe was Details Magazine’s April 2011 cover story and is currently one of the cover stories for Paper Magazine’s Summer Music issue. He made his U.S. television debut as a solo artist on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.” After the U.S. tour wraps up on Oct. 6, Joe will head to Stockholm, Sweden to join Britney Spears on her European Femme Fatale tour on Oct. 16.
“This is going to be a killer tour and who better to hit the road with than Jay Sean,” says Joe Jonas. “I’ve been working hard to put together a show that my fans are going to love. There are some real surprises in store so people coming out to these shows are going to see a different side of me. I really can’t wait to get back out there and see all those familiar faces again.”
