Cash Money Records is primarily known as the home of multi-platinum superstar MC Lil Wayne, but that's all starting to change. Last year the label branched out by scoring a hit with Kevin Rudolf's "Let It Rock." Although that tune featured a guest spot by Weezy, it was decidedly pop-rock leaning and virtually void of any hip-hop vibe, save for Wayne's presence. Around the same time that "Let It Rock" was omnipresent on pop radio, Cash Money announced the signing of Jay Sean, a British R&B singer of Indian descent born Kamaljit Singh Jhooti. While Sean scored hits in the U.K. as early as 2003, he's just starting to make inroads in the U.S. with the single "Down," featuring none other than Lil Wayne. It's in the top 20 of iTunes top pop songs chart. Check it out below.
