This is Jessie J s third album but her sophomore album, Alive, was never released in the US. Her new LP, Sweet Talker, will arrive on October 13 in the UK followed by a worldwide release on October 14 via Republic and Lava Records.
It was the quickest album I ever made, Jessie told Radio.com. I m really proud of it though. I really feel like it represents where I m at right now as a singer, as a woman, as a person, emotionally, everything.
2014 sees Jessie J continue to stand out and set the pace though. In July, the first single from her forthcoming album arrived with a bang literally. Jessie J teamed up with rising diva Ariana Grande and rap's reigning queen Nicki Minaj for "Bang Bang". It's a blockbuster anthem, combining Jessie J's inimitable delivery, Ariana Grande's massive range, and Nicki Minaj's deft wordplay. As soon as "Bang Bang" dropped, the charts exploded. Immediately, the track captured the #1 spot on iTunes Overall Top Songs Chart and reached Gold status within weeks of release. It perfectly set the stage for the October 14th release of her next LP, Sweet Talker, which will also undoubtedly change the game yet again.
