I think it is time that I introduced you guys to the hottest singing star in the UK at the moment, Jessie J.
Born in Essex in 1998, at the age of 22 she has already written songs for Justin Timberlake, Chris Brown and Christina Aguilera, as well as co-writing Miley Cyrus’ Party in The USA.
Jessie’s first single, Do it Like A Dude, has already clocked up 5,000,000 views on YouTube, and her current singleÂ Price Tag went straight in at Number 1 in the UKÂ charts. She uploadedÂ Price TagÂ on-line early last summer as a teaser, but has since released the track after re-recording it with B.O.B, I’m guessing to add that extra credibility for a foray into the American market.
Jessie began being noticed in the UK after posting home made clips on the internet and has since been studying at the BRIT School with an alumini which reads like a Who’s Who of global pop culture – Leona Lewis, Adele and Amy Winehouse Â (Yep, it’s really her) to name a few.
Despite the edginess and urban chic that Jessie J is marketing herself as, she doesn’t drink a drop of alcohol, smoke or take drugs due to a serious medical condition with her heart, and is an advocate for human rights and equality.
I first discovered her when a friend told me to check out a video she has posted onÂ You TubeÂ singing a song called Mama Knows Best. I got goose bumps watching her, and though you could say there are certainly similarities with Christina Aguilera, I think Jessie has a fresh style to her and at 22 is an awesome role model.
First we gave you Leona Lewis, then Adele, quicklyÂ followed by Kylie Minogue, and now I would suspect you guysÂ will be seeinga lotÂ more of Jessie J in the very near future.
Oh and by the way, you can keep Kylie Minogue, we don’t really want her back thanks.
