25 year old singer Jessie J has finally released a new single, Wild, which will come from her second studio album, due for release later this year.
Jessie has teamed up with rappers Big Sean and Dizzee Rascal for this single, and the video features not a lot of clothes from the London born star!
Jessie J, real name Jessica Cornish, has recently admitted she’s nervous about releasing her next record. Her debut, Who You Are, was released 2 years ago now and has since then been busy with touring and TV shows like The Voice.
Honestly, for me, i’m hoping this song is a grower. The first time of listening it didn’t catch my attention at all, and I felt the feature of Big Sean and Dizzee Rascal was a little bit unnecessary. One or the other would’ve been fine, and it makes the track feel a bit lazy and poorly constructed. The video changed my mind slightly, with Miss J looking extremely sexy in black underwear and her recently shaved head which has been dyed blonde.
Jessie recently spoke to Kiss FM, where she explained that although she is next to nude, the video is still ‘clean and very classy’. She says, ‘I wanted to show i’m confident with my body, however slim I may be. I wanted to show you don’t have to be curvaceous to drop it low.’
Any critique aside, there is no denying the vocal talent of Jessie J and I have time for anyone who is a little daring with their releases.
Wild is out now on iTunes, and as well as various festivals over the summer, Jessie J tours the UK in October, including London’s O2 Arena on the 29th.
