Have you heard of Jessie J? If not, get ready to educate yourself. This amazing new talent from the UK could very well be the breakout music artist of 2011. Based on her new single and video, she stands a good chance of achieving that. I seriously can’t get enough of her infectious song. According to your feedback, you want more music posts and we’re going to deliver.
Born Jessica Ellen Cornish, the English songstress was born in the UK in 1988. Like many new singer/songwriters today, she first gained notoriety penning tracks for big names like Justin Timberlake, Alicia Keys, Chris Brown and Christina Aguilera. She’s the genius who whipped up the melody for Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the USA”. Don’t even hate, I know every gay has that track on their guilty pleasure playlist. Right?
To classify Jessie J to a specific musical genre would be a disservice to her and to the world. Mix a bit of Rihanna with Gwen Stefani, add the charisma of Pink, and you will start to get an idea of what kind of girl Jessie J is. Don’t be fooled by her perfectly styled jet black bob, the girl has soulful pipes that would make Aretha Franklin take notice. Her vocal swagger is perfectly showcased in her upbeat, energetic reggae-infused new track, “Price Tag“. Jessie J’s booming voice shines even amid the glossy production.
Buzz about Jessie J has been picking up so much steam lately, her debut effort, “Who You Are” has been pushed up by her record label. That’s right, pushed up by a full month to February 28, 2011 in the UK. The norm these days is all about pushing albums back because they’re not generating any buzz. Good on her. According to a recent interview, her album will consist of reggae, euphoric, dance and R&B. If you wanna know what that sounds like, watch her new music video below featuring rapper B.o.B. and you’ll see what magic sounds like.
