Biography

With an infectious laugh, 6-inch heels and a perfectly styled bob, she walks into the room and goes straight to the piano. Possessing a good sense of humour, a raw British accent and an un-doubtable eye for fashion, Jessie J has arrived. "I can't play...man, I wish I could. I just like to pretend I can," she smiles.

Jessie J is not just a great pop artist…or a great ... Read more in Amazon's Jessie J Store

Subtlety you will not find on this record.

What you will find is a plethora of upbeat and slow, catchy, vaguely British, sometimes cliché-- but always entertaining songs that will either make you want to get up and dance or scream along to in your car with the top down. It's the perfect summer album.

Jessica Cornish aka Jessie J has been working for almost six years churning out hits for artists like Justin Timberlake, Miley Cyrus, Alicia Keys and Christina Aguilera. Jessie is no overnight success. She's put in the years of hard work. Her versatility both in style and music choice is one of my favorite things about Jessie, which is ironically the very thing she's been getting the most flak about from critics.

I like that she doesn't sound the same on every song. I like that "Mamma Knows Best" has an underlying Motown feel while the hard hitting "Do It Like a Dude" is a hybrid of hip-hop/pop. What some critics are calling "lack of direction," I call variety. And it's not like you're going to find an opera bit on here, these songs are all definitely within Jessie's comfort zones of r&b, pop, Motown and hip-hop. As a caution though, if you were expecting the entire album to sound like "Price Tag" or even "Do It Like a Dude," then you will be in for a surprise.

While sometimes Jessie's overly simplified lyrics can get on my nerves, what is undeniable is Jessie's vocal talent. Her voice is never lost in autotune or "corrected." Jessie knows she has a good voice and is unafraid to showcase that. While she's not Adele or Amy, Jessie blows the roof off in comparison to other mainstream rivals like Ke$ha or Rihanna.

Jessie J is brillant! She's very talented and keeps her listeners entertained. I loved each and every song. Usually artists aren't so versatile but Jessie J proved that wrong! She switches from Hip Hop, to R&B, to Pop and you won't feel that she's putting too much effort into it. Her adlibs and vocals are amazing for each song, she adds a different style to each song she sings! My favorite songs from here album are: L.O.V.E(vocals are INCREDIBLE it'll give you chills), I Need This(This song will make you speechless..just listen and you'll understand what I'm saying), Mama Knows Best(A jazzy feel song that you can relate to), and Do It Like a Dude(a different style of song that'll make you want to just get up and dance). This is definately an ablbum anyone should get if they want to hear a different fresh mix of music. Who You Are gets 5 stars from ME!!

Jessie J has been around for several years it seems, penning hits for other artists (most notably Miley Cyrus' 'Party in the U.S.A.). It seems just now that she is really beginning to catch fire both in the US and in her native UK. 'Price Tag', the first commercially successful single by Jessie, has already gone to the top spot on the UK charts and is steadily climbing the charts in the US. Now, she has released her debut album, and while she shows amazing signs of promise, there isn't a concise idea here that shows anything about Jessie J as an artist, other then she has some stellar pipes.

Price Tag: The most well-known track on the album, this definitely gets a boost from some great Dr. Luke production. Overall, it has a nice island vibe with B.o.B. dropping a solid rap. A very pleasant song. B

Nobody's Perfect: This track rises most due to Jessie's invested singing, paired with a solid hook and some fairly well-written lyrics. Definite single potential. B+

Abracadabra: Dr. Luke gives some more solid production, but this has some weak writing that makes it a little weaker than its predecessor. Another good track, but not exceptional by any means. B

Big White Room: This track may have sounded better as a bonus to end the album; right here it stops the album dead. A vocally profound performance with some very nice lyrics, but this one suffers a bit from unnecessary length. B-

Casualty of Love: Another song held up by Jessie's vocals. The writing is okay here, and the production is inoffensive, but not mind-blowing. B

Rainbow: This one offers a bit of a rap break, and has the most catchy chorus of any song on the album. A shiny gem with an uplifting message.

One thing about Jessie J that works for and against (in seemingly equal parts) is that she kind of sounds like an amalgam of a variety of popular artists today. If you took Natasha Bedingfield and splashed her musicality with the likes of Beyonce, Rihanna, P!nk, Lily Allen, Keri Hilson, Anouk and Christina Aguilera you'd have Jessie J. The good thing about this is that she is versatile. Her album shows a lot of range. The bad thing is that she doesn't have any real signature sound to differentiate her from the artists I mentioned above. She lacks the focus needed to create her own sound. That doesn't mean that she doesn't turn out some good music. In fact, some of the songs on `Who You Are' are exceptional; especially that title track. The problem is that I'm not sure who she is yet.

But Jessie has bigger problems rearing their heads on this album.

Namely, it's the lyrical content, which is quite shallow in parts and just uninteresting and uninspired for the most part. She doesn't stretch herself with her ability to write (which she's been doing long before she started to sing) and so her album pales in comparison to those of the artists she emulates (well, most of them).

With an album like this, I really don't know where to start because there aren't many songs that sound similar (semi-great thing), so I'll just pick a place.

How about the top!

When she goes the `Natasha Bedingfield/Anouk' route she shines the brightest. `Who You Are' is simply divine, and it closes the album perfectly because it actually had me wanting to listen to it all over again to find more kernels of that kind of brilliance. That chorus alone is just ridiculous; it's nearly an event all its own.

April release?
I too would be interested in an answer for this. I was wanting to order the album autographed by Jessie on Play.com, but they do not ship to America.
I ordered a copy of the Canadian band Sweet Thing's album on Amazon.ca and it came shortly after the actual release date in Canada. (A week later... Read More
