Urban stars on stage
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.
