This new face is known as Jessie J, 22-year-old British R&B star from the UK. Her sound is different from mainstream artists but if you’re well rounded in music you’d know she’s not that different. She has written songs for Chris Brown (“I Need This”), Miley Cyrus (“Party in the USA”), and others. Jessie J is signed to Island Records. She tweeted this morning that they have decided that the album will be released on 28th February, a whole month before the original date. She’s already won the Critics Choice Brit Award and BBC Sound of 2011 Poll. I think she’s off to a great start with her career. Her album “Who You Are” features her two hottest singles “Price Tag” and “Do It Like A Dude.”

The title track and 1st single, “Who You Are” is about a point in Jessie’s career where the singer’s aspirations were hanging on a thread. “The most important thing in life is to be happy, but everything had become too ‘business’ and sterile. I really thought I was going to quit—not music, but the music industry…it wasn’t easy,” Jessie states. “I was really down, but when I’m down, I write a song about it.” (source:


Jessie J has claimed that her fans will stick around because they can see she’s not just an industry puppet or a robot that they can’t relate to. (source: taletela)
