Combining the vocal prowess of Beyoncé, the genre-hopping sounds of Gwen Stefani, and the feisty attitude of P!nk, singer / songwriter Jessie J eventually overcame various career setbacks and health problems to become a star in her own right. Born Jessica Cornish in Chadwell Heath, London in 1988, Jessie J started her career in showbiz at the age of 11, performing in the West End production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Whistle Down the Wind. After studying musical theater at the prestigious Brits School, Jessie J signed a deal with indie label Gut Records, which went bankrupt before releasing any of her music. Following a minor stroke at age 18, Jessie J gained a Sony publishing contract and penned hits for the likes of Chris Brown, Dutch X Factor winner Lisa Lois, and Miley Cyrus (the American number two hit “Party in the USA”). After building up an established online presence, she signed to Universal Records and began working with the likes of hitmaker Dr. Luke (Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson), Atlanta rapper B.o.B, and R&B producer Labrinth on her debut album, ‘Who You Are’.
In 2010, her first single, ‘Do It Like a Dude’, originally written for Rihanna, reached number 25 in the UK charts and, following in the footsteps of Adele, Florence and the Machine, and Ellie Goulding, Jessie J was announced as the winner of the Critics Choice Award at the 2011 Brits. That same year, an appearance on Saturday Night Live coincided with her album being reissued in the US.
Jessie J is still hot on the heels of her fantastic debut studio album ‘Who You Are’, which still boasts numerous single releases to date including Do It Like A Dude, Price Tag, Who’s Laughing Now, Domino and many more. The Deluxe Edition of the LP was released in December 2011 and features a total of 16 tracks including her hit ‘Laserlight’ which features David Guetta.
