Break Ya Back

Album: Hit The Lights (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • This is a track by British R&B singer Jay Sean, from his compilation album, Hit The Lights. American producer and rapper Timbaland helmed the uptempo cut.
  • Sean told DesiHits why this song differs from anything else he has done. "That's me singing in a whole different style, a different voice, using my voice as an instrument to try and find out different ways of using it. Its interesting and song writing - wise its very different too."
  • The song finds Sean channelling the Hip-Hop side of his musical background. "That's a complete swagger record," said the singer. "I've never done anything like that before. A lot of the intricate flows come from my Hip-Hop background when I used to write raps."
