The Buckinghamshire mansion featured is Hedsor House, an enormous private mansion and park where Mark Ronson hosted his 33rd birthday and where scenes for the feature film The Golden Compass were filmed. The video was completed in Miami, with Jay Sean heading to the US to finish the video with Lil Wayne on 20 May 2009.

'Hit the Lights' is the second single by English recording artist Jay Sean, taken from the compilation album, Hit the Lights. The single features American rapper and labelmate Lil Wayne. The single is produced by OFM production team J-Remy and Bobby Bass. It was released to UK as a digital download to iTunes on 4 February 2011,[1] and to US radio stations and as a digital download to iTunes on 8 February 2011.[2] It was released as a CD Single in the United Kingdom on 24 April 2011.[3]


Jay Sean told MTV, 'I'm so excited about this song, 'cause, for me, it's the first time I felt like I did a huge club record, I always wanted to write a song that could be batted across all the clubs and on radio. And I think this is that song. It doesn't need any remixes or anything like that.'[4] He said also 'I'm feeling mad excited about 'Hit the Lights'. It's a club banger that's gonna get everyone movin! I'm looking forward to watching another one of my songs grow! That's the most fun part!”[5]


Lil Wayne Ft Jay Sean That Ain T Me

Of the collaboration he told MTV News, 'It's inspirational, I learn off of people who have achieved greatness. There's something about them -- their work ethic, their mentality -- that resonates and strikes a chord. So when I watch him to see what he does, in my head I'm looking at it going, 'This is why he got to where he is.' And I like to learn that.'[4] Lil Wayne previously contributed a verse to the British artist's US breakthrough single, 'Down'. Jay Sean told DesiHits about the difference in dynamic between 'Down' and 'Hit the Lights' in terms of working with Lil Wayne, 'It's different when you hear his interpretation of the song, he has understood that I have taken it to a bit more of a sexy and mature level on this song. 'Down' was young and playful while 'Hit the Lights' is for a mature audience and it is aimed at the clubs, plus the lyrics of the song. Lil Wayne added his interpretation and of course some things had to get bleeped out.'[6]

Lil Wayne Ft Jay Sean Down Lyrics

'I’ve never really had a massive club song, so I wanted a song that I could smash into clubs worldwide. That’s what the lyrics are about: having a good time. Musically it’s progressive for me. It incorporates more of the current music climate. I think you have to move with the times. Michael Jackson and Madonna moved with the times. Music is changing. I wanted to incorporate all the sounds — so we’ve got dance, we’ve got pop, we’ve got R&B, hip-hop all in one song. ' Sean told India-West.[7]

Jay Sean sampled the song in another song he made, YMCMB Heroes, featuring Tyga, Busta Rhymes, and Cory Gunz.

'Hit the Lights' was recently featured on Las Vegas, Nevada's tourism campaign 'Only Vegas' where a man at his work station was singing along to the song while viewing photos of his vacation in Las Vegas.
