Jay Sean featuring Sean Paul & Lil Jon, "Do You Remember"

Track Review

The saying goes: If it isn't broken, don't fix it. That seems to be the strategy Jay Sean and his team employed by releasing "Do You Remember" as the second single off his "All or Nothing" album. Much like his recent Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 "Down," "Remember" finds Sean avowing his desire for love. "Just you and me tonight, everything will be OK/Baby let's take this time, let's make new memories," he sings over similar brusque violin strings and drums. Sean also goes into cyclical mode on the chorus, looping the title and the phrase "Let's bring it back" over and over as on "Down." There are some modifications to the formula, however, like the all-too-familiar ad-libs by Lil Jon. The rapper/producer guests alongside Sean Paul, who adds a pleasant reggae twist.-Mariel Concpecion
