Dreams, how many of us have them?! But how many of us actually follow through with them? Pop singer, Jay Sean did!
Man, I remember being in grad school at Hofstra University when Jay Sean dropped that: ‘Baby Are You Down, Down, Down, Down, Down,’ song!
“Down,” featured Jay Sean and Lil’ Wayne and took folks to a happy place! As pop and hip as Jay Sean is, he’s also quite intelligent. A straight-A student in school, he hit the books hard. Before the fame, some would think he’d stick with books and school, but he chose what he loved.
In a recent interview on Scoop B Radio, I chatted with Jay Sean about potential resistance from his family and friends from choosing it. “You would think so, it is a very understandable question, like so many people say that,” Jay Sean told me on Scoop B Radio.
“And the thing is my parents they instilled this dreaming mentality into both me and my brother they were like listen, too many people go through life and just do the regular things that are expected of you, you know what I mean? Go to school, get the grades, go to a University, don’t really know what you want to study come out of Uni broke don’t really know how to pay off your loans, don’t really know what job you want to get and don’t really know whether it’s a girl you want to marry there’s so many things that we just do because we’re expected to do it you know what I mean?”
So what exactly did Jay Sean’s parents advise him?
“They were just like if you love something with a passion whether it be a girl, whether it be a career, whatever it is a hobby give it your all so my parents actually encouraged us so much.”
