Do it Like a Dude - Jessie J
I've talked about her on Facebook but this is my first official post here. Jessie is an artist from Redbridge London and what most people are going to be shocked is that she is an exceptionally accomplished songwriter. She's written for Christina Aguleria, Justin Timberlake, Alicia Keys and she penned a little song titled Party in the U.S.A for Miley Cyrus. Why this is important is because she has chops and she's demonstrated them. I am falling in love with her because she has not only a bad ass take no prisoners attitude but she seems to have a sincerity and an deep felt honesty about her that carries through her public persona. I think she is definitely an artist to watch out for because she is doing big things and she is freaking gorgeous.
What impresses the hell out of me in the video above is that it does seem that she is singing live. And if you had any doubt in your mind whether or not my girl can wail, check out this video (Which is the title track from her first studio album):
Make sure you watch out for her because I feel she deserves your attention.
