HAVING a famous brother like pop singer Sean Kingston has its advantages and pitfalls as far as deejay Jay A is concerned.
The St James-born artiste is currently promoting his latest songs, Vans and Pure in Heart.
"Being Sean Kingston's brother has been good and bad so far for my career. Sean and I grew up in different environments but people sometimes think I'm rich because we are related. Sometimes it's pressuring and people judge me before they even meet me, thinking I do pop music or expect an American accent," Jay A told the Jamaica Observer.
"But, otherwise it's nice to see the interest when people hear I'm the older brother of Sean Kingston so that may open doors and I appreciate that."
Born Tarik Morris, Jay A is in his mid-20s and divides his time between Kingston and South Florida. He made his recording debut at age 16 with Hustle to Live for the Sam 7 Entertainment label.
He has toured with his Sean Kingston, who had an international hit five years ago with Beautiful Girl.
"Sean has definitely been supportive and even took me on tour with him in 2010. He gives me advice and encouragement," says Jay A.
"We do disagree and argue sometimes but that's family. He does try to motivate me and we are even looking at doing some work together in the near future."
He lists performing extensively abroad and sharing the stage with acts such as Justin Bieber and Shaggy, as the highlights of his career to date.
Ultimately, Jay A wants to make it off his own steam.
"I am just being me and there is only one me. I'm doing quality songs and positive music and even though I won't say I am better than any other artiste, I know I stand out as unique because there is only one me," he says.
