Jay Sean has confessed he's still a "science geek" inside.

The British singer - who had a huge hit with Down in 2009 - is a former medical student, but dropped out of college when he was offered a record deal.

He said: "Deep down inside, I'm a science geek - I've always been fascinated by the body and the mind."

Jay recently released his record All Or Nothing, his third studio album and his international debut record.

He said of launching his career in the US: "The best part is when I'm coming over to America, nobody knows who I am, and nobody cares. I learned that the minute I got to immigration. He was like, 'So what do you do?' and I went, 'I'm a singer.' He goes, 'I haven't heard of you!'

"I realised that, 'OK, you know what, I have got a clean slate here, people don't know anything about my history or my background or what I achieved, so let me prove myself again.' And I love that."
