Indian-origin singer and songwriter Jay Sean, who is based out of England, says that he follows no set formula when he sets about creating his songs, in fact, many of his hits were created in no time.

“I have thought about it a lot and I have reached to the conclusion that there’s no science behind it. Most of my best songs have taken no time at all. I usually get to know whether the song will work or not when I create the melody for the first time. I hum around the melody to think if a song around it can be done and that’s usually my cue to go ahead or not,” says the 36-year-old singer.

“This is how I work and I am not aware about how others work in recording their songs. I keep on humming around the melody and I have to trust that. Maybe it’s not the right way to do it, but that’s how it works for me. It’s all a spontaneous process,” Jay adds further.

The singer also reveals that he takes longer to write the lyrics of the song and not when he is composing the music. “For me lyrics take the longest time and that’s where most of the time is spent. I write, then I rewrite and it’s a never ending process till I am satisfied. But other than that, I generally finish a song fast. If, I take too much time, I know in my gut that the song will not work with the audiences,” he says.
