Ur­ban stars on stage

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - WHAT'S ON -

R’n’B chart­top­per Jay Sean (pic­tured) and two of Aus­tralia’s hottest young tal­ents will trans­form Jupiters The­atre into an ur­ban mu­sic play­ground this week­end. Sean (pic­tured) will be joined by home-grown danc­ing and singing all-stars Jus­tice Crew and fast-ris­ing Aussie vo­cal star Elen Levon for a triple treat in the re­fur­bished the­atre, at Jupiters Ho­tel & Casino on Sun­day. With a trade­mark blend of smooth hip hop, pop, dance and R’n’B vo­cals and live beat box­ing, Sean has ce­mented his pop­u­lar­ity on hits in­clud­ing Down and Do You Re­mem­ber as well as his new Top 10 sin­gle I’m All Yours, fea­tur­ing pro­ducer and per­former Pit­bull. One of the most suc­cess­ful British male ur­ban artists in US chart his­tory, Sean re­cently re­leased his fourth stu­dio al­bum, Freeze Time. Jus­tice Crew have also hooked up with star per­former and pro­ducer Pit­bull. The Aussie hip-hop stars and ARIA nom­i­nees have signed with the US power­bro­ker af­ter they im­pressed him when he was in Aus­tralia re­cently. Pit­bull worked with Jus­tice Crew to re­lease their sin­gle, Boom Boom, in the US. Iron­i­cally, Pit­bull de­clined a chance to record Boom Boom for his al­bum – giv­ing Jus­tice Crew their chance. ‘‘When the song was pitched to Pit­bull he didn’t think it was the right time for him to do it but we caught wind of the song and gave it a go,’’ Jus­tice Crew’s Em­manuel Ro­driguez says. Hot, young vo­cal­ist Levon, 18, opened ears last year with her de­but sin­gle, Naughty, fea­tur­ing Is­rael Cruz, with the track picked up for pro­mos for hit TV show Gos­sip Girl.

Jay Sean, Jus­tice Crew and Elen Levon play Jupiters The­atre on Sun­day. Tick­ets start at $69.
