MOBO nominated R&B star Jay Sean has inked his first stateside deal with Cash Money Records, home to Lil Wayne and Birdman.

Revealed Thursday, Jay Sean's deal allows the popular UK artist to bring his brand of R&B to the United States.

"It's always been a dream for me to sign to an American label and it's great to be accepted by the best in the game" says the Music of Black Origin Best Male UK artist nominee.

Jay Sean is slated to re-release the hit album "My Own Way" in the United States early next year led by the single "Tonight" featuring Lil Wayne.

Jay Sean, a British/Asian singer/songwriter, has been praised for his hits "Stolen," "Eyes On You," and "Ride It" since 2004's hit album "Me Against Myself."
