In case you missed it, R&B singer Jay Sean released his fourth studio album at the end of July. Titled Neon, the 15-track album features collaborations with artists like Busta Rhymes and Rick Ross. But like most of the British artist’s releases since his 2009 hit “Down,” the album remains lackluster. With the lone exception of the album single, “Mars,” the songs as a whole are bland and unforgettable. Unconvinced? Don’t take our word for it. According to the latest news, the album has sold less than 4,000 copies since it released July 30. Here’s what the critics had to say:
“[E]xpensively produced but crushingly safe.” [MetroUK]
“As safe and inoffensive as its namesake gas.” [The Observer]
“He’s inched closer to to sounding remarkable, but he’s also proceeding with too much cash-conscious caution. [Idolator]
In short, another disappointment. It may be time for this handsome crooner to turn off the mic for a hot minute and work on bringing back the moves that once made him a fan favorite.
