    I'm fairly sure the reason he's not recognised here is because his music is really... well, American and he caters to the American market. He just happens to come from London.
    *cough* He's not actually that good either... *cough*

    I think its less to do with racism and more to do with the fact that his music sucks ass.

    I don't think it has anything to do with his race or ethnicity. They've been PLENTY successful non-White artists in Britain who have achieved number 1 hits. I guess there just isn't much interest in Jay Sean outside the British Asians community in the Uk.
    This. The only people that he's music appeals to are south asian teen girls. There's nothing special about his music either, it's the same RnB **** that's been done many times by different people.
