Down? Jay Sean's Star Is Rising Way Up

Today, I bring a totally non-critical announcement.

Indo-Brit R&B artist Jay Sean soared to the top of the charts this week with his single, "Down."

Not only did he cross over from across the pond but, he's also the first South Asian musician to reach the coveted No. 1 spot on Billboard's Hot 100.

The serious ear worm tune knocked the Black Eyed Peas out of position. Probably doesn't hurt to share a label with Lil' Wayne so he can lend his rap style to your song. Still, I think Jay Sean could have gotten to top even without the extra support. Props to my fellow Desi.
