Video: John Regan f/ Jaiden, Skyzoo - "One Day in Heaven"

Here's the last leak off of "Sorry I'm Late", which drops 11/16. If you pre-order from, they'll ship it early.

Title: One Day in Heaven ft. Skyzoo & Jaiden
Artist: John Regan
Album: Sorry I'm Late
Producer: YZ
Label: Culture VI Records/Fat Beats

Quick story. I want to congratulate Jaiden, who just signed a deal
with Interscope/Geffen. I actually thought I had "discovered" him when
I stumbled across his music. Turns out, I discovered him about as much
as Christopher Columbus discovered America. I used to spend hours on
MySpace just listening to hundreds of artists in the hope of finding
some talented, yet undiscovered, artists. I just love good music. I
had gotten an email from his manager Delaney blasting out his mixtape,
coincidentally at the same time I stumbled across his MySpace.

Well, I was instantly blown away. I became a fan. Asked him about
doing a record, to which he was down. I told him I wanted to interview
him - at the time thinking I was giving him some big break and
newfound exposure.

We sit down to talk, where he begins telling me about recording,
writing and touring with artists such as Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, Diddy and
Lauryn Hill. Turns out, this guy's resume is deeper than most
"successful" artists. Go figure!

So, while I didn't exactly "discover" him, I'm proud that I became a
fan before I knew of his extensive experience. I went to watch him
perform a couple of weeks ago in LA at the R&B Live show (where I also
ran into Macy Gray, Chico DeBarge  and a host of other huge names) -
the same night he agreed to a deal with Interscope/Geffen. He won the
highly competitive event, by the way, and had the biggest applause and
best performance, by far.

Huge shouts to Skyzoo, who has dropped two of hip-hop's best recent
projects in the past 12 months - The Salvation and Live from the Tape
Deck with Illmind. He's not only one of the most talented dudes (his
verse on Heaven is amazing) - but one of the coolest, most
down-to-earth artists I've ever had the pleasure of working with.
Please go support his projects. Shouts to everybody over at Duck Down.

Thanks - hope you enjoy the record!
