If you're a true millennial, you probably know the lyrics to Jay Sean's "Down" by heart — especially Lil Wayne's verse. "Down" along with Sean's other hit "Ride It" is enjoying a resurgence on TikTok with DJs remixing and reviving it for a new generation. "There are 120,000 brand new songs that come out every single day that's over a million a week on top of how many millions there are already," the British singer-songwriter tells PS. "So, when one song out of the trillions that exist happens to have a resurgence, I have nothing but gratitude for that."

Sean started his career in the early aughts, and with four studio albums, three mixtapes, and a whopping 53 singles under his belt, he's cemented his place in the music industry. He pioneered a genre of Indian-R&B fusion, and although his taste in music is ever-evolving, he does miss early aughts R&B vibes. "Music felt different then," he says. "You had those songs that you could put on a mixtape and give to your girl or your guy. I think some of the mixtape music needs to come back." Sean teases that his upcoming fifth album fits that description.

"The core backbone of this new album is a lot more soulful R&B, which I think people will know from things like 'Ride It,' 'Stay,' and 'Maybe,' and all of that stuff that had the feels," he says. His album includes features from Hindi and Punjabi artists and "some of the songs have me actually singing in Punjabi or Hindi," he says.

Alongside releasing his upcoming album, he's looking forward to nurturing new artists on his record label, 3AM Entertainment. "I want to be able to say that my work was important and that things that I did help[ed] other people," Sean says. "The way I can do that best is by providing a platform where people like me, who have dreams like I did when I was 20 years old to be a star, can come and be supported." Sean brought on early collaborators Jeremy Skaller and Jared Cotter for 3AM Entertainment in partnership with Virgin Music Group and Range. "Those are the people that I wrote my biggest hits with, and now it's come full circle. We are going to provide that platform to help new talent shine and create more hits."

Sean's biggest advice for aspiring artists? "For every wild dream that anybody successful has ever had, there've been a million people who've shut them down and said 'don't be crazy. You're never going to do that.' And yet those people go on and change the world."

When he's off the clock, Sean loves to spend time with his family and focus on his well-being. Ahead, he shared his favorite products for accomplishing the latter, from a brightening facial essence to the editor-backed Tonal home gym.

"You can't go wrong with a Zara Basic Heavyweight T-Shirt ($30) in black," Sean says. Although he has plenty of them in his closet, it's a wardrobe staple he can depend on — whether it's a fun, vibrant jacket or a classic pair of jeans. "It's a running joke that no matter what country I land in, even though I have 10 black tees with me, I'll always go to Zara and go and buy another one. I know it's just going to look nice and crisp under whatever outfit I have."

Sean is passionate about staying fit and has done everything from CrossFit to hot yoga, but the Tonal ($3,495, originally $3,995) is his go-to for everyday workouts. "It's got so many programs that I never get bored of. Honestly, it's so easy. I can knock out the sickest workout with a personal trainer right there if I need one. And I can compete with my friends and share it with them — that makes it fun," he says. Sean also invests in his diet and highly recommends consuming whole foods to fuel his body rather than solely relying on protein shakes.

Unsurprisingly, he loves to incorporate music into his workouts. "If I'm doing weights, I work out to hip hop. It puts me in that head space to lift. If I'm doing cardio and I'm running, I listen to dance music or music at a much higher BPM." He notes that his songs "I'm All Yours" and "Hit the Lights" are fun to run to.

Jay Sean's Morning Routine Must Have

Sean had a pretty basic skin-care routine consisting of just a moisturizer until his daughter told him to level up. Now, he loves using Kiehl's Since 1851 Ferulic Brew Facial Treatment Essence ($62), which helps hydrate his skin and keep his oily t-zone balanced. "As soon as you put it on, you just feel vibrant instantly, [achieving] that kind of dewy skin which looks healthy," he says. The facial essence is an antioxidant-rich formula with ferulic acid, lactic acid, and squalane, which helps to brighten and smooth the skin. He follows it up with a moisturizer and SPF in the morning, and at night, he uses a vitamin C serum.

A firm, memory foam pillow is a must for Sean, especially since he travels so often. "When you are not in your own house, and you're not in your own bed, my firm pillow is a comfort that makes me feel like I'm in my bedroom," he says. He loves the neck support a firm pillow provides. The Saatva Graphite Memory Foam Pillow ($132, originally $165) is a find we recommend, but we also love the Sealy Memory Foam Molded Pillow ($31) which is an affordable option.

Jay Sean's Travel Must Have

Sean uses the downtime on a plane to catch up on movies and TV shows, but when he's seen them all, he likes to switch it up and play video games on his Nintendo Switch ($300). "I like to play a bit of Crash Bandicoot, and a bit of Super Mario Kart," he says. "When I'm not traveling with it, I hook it up at home to the big screen, and my son and I play video games."

Sean's biggest travel tip is to set yourself up to have moments to relax throughout your journey. "The whole airport experience can be extremely high anxiety for a lot of people because if it's not you who's anxious, it's all the other passengers who are rubbing off their anxiety onto you. So for me, I always turn up early," he says. He recommends getting Clear and TSA Pre-check for expedited security screening. He also loves using an eye mask, so you can sleep without distractions.

"You don't need to get up straight away when the plane lands," he says of the arrival process. "Just chill out, man. Everybody's going to get off the plane. Take a minute, make sure that you're happy, [take in] the fact that you've landed safely, and then you will get off the plane."
