Singer-song­writer Jay Sean (above) is a big fan of so­cial me­dia and thinks it’s a won­der­ful plat­form to in­ter­act with his fans. How­ever, the singer is wor­ried about how badly peo­ple are get­ting ad­dicted to it. He ad­dresses this con­cern in the re­cently re­leased sin­gle, Do you love me. “I wanted to do some­thing dif­fer­ent. This was some­thing that had been both­er­ing me for a long time. Any­where you go, from gyms to night­clubs, you see peo­ple click­ing self­ies, or glued to their smart­phones. They are al­ways on so­cial me­dia,” says Sean.

Wor­ried about the up­com­ing gen­er­a­tion and their ad­dic­tion to the vir­tual world 38-year-old says, “I haven’t seen a more vain gen­er­a­tion than this. Ask­ing peo­ple who don’t even care about me, to like or com­ment on what you are do­ing on daily ba­sis, is ridicu­lous. I’m wor­ried about this sort of de­featist at­ti­tude, and that’s why I de­cided to take up this is­sue through a mu­sic video.”

Lyri­cally, how­ever, the song re­mains a ro­man­tic song, as the singer wasn’t keen to write a song on ad­dic­tion. “I think that would have been tak­ing it a bit too far. I didn’t want to sound preachy and just wanted to show that it’s a wor­ry­ing trend. I am a bit scared about this tech­nol­ogy.”
