The British Invasion of the 21st century continues on as the woman behind Miley Cyrus’ hit single “Party in the USA” is slowly unveiled to American music fans all over. Jessie J is the latest in a new wave of British bands and solo acts to come stateside in the last few years to America and boy is she coming in a loud and grand fashion! Throw in the moxie of a Gwen Stefani with the fiery charisma of a Pink and add a dash of Motown soul, a unique fashion flair and an unmistakable British accent and you can only begin to understand the package that is Jessie J!
Her music cannot be pigeonholed into any specific genre and fits quite well with the inclination towards genre mash-up because it is a wild and wonderful fusion of pop, rock, old school R&B/Soul with a small hint of hip-hop. And while she is unable to play a piano like the majority of singer-songwriters like her, she makes up for that with a set of pipes that will blow just about anyone away! Already a prolific songwriter, having scored a no. 1 hit penning Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the USA”, she is set to bring her brand of music to the US April 12 when her debut album (already out in her native UK) “Who You Are” hits stores and digital retailers via Lava/Universal Republic Records! We will see if she hits gold here in the US like she has in her native UK, where she earned a BRIT Awards Critics Choice of 2011 and a #1 on the UK charts for “Price Tag”!
