We’ve had a pretty good track record with our UK sistren selects, having been one of the first to co-sign both Duffy and Adele back in 2008. Seeing now that Amy Winehouse is getting boob-jobs and wasted in pubs, we’ve got our eyes set on Essex’s Jessie J in terms of who’s next after hearing her track “Do It Like A Dude” a few weeks back.
The singer/songwriter has already penned for Miley Cyrus, Christina Aguilera and Chris Brownâ€”not to mention, Justin Timberlake calling you “the best singer in the world” certainly helpsâ€”but as Jessie visits the US this month, only time will tell if her pop-tinged b-girl style will break through the Gaga and Taylor Swift clutter. On a personal note, her lifelong struggle with her heart and suffering a minor stroke at 18 years-old must be a source of drive and confidence for her.
“I’m not just an artist, I’m a therapist, and that’s pressure, but it’s what the world needs right now,” Jessie J told England’s The Guardian.
Her first US single and debut album Who You Are is set to drop soon on Lava/Universal records. See for yourself below ladies!
