About Jessie J
Jessica Cornish, better known as Jessie J, is a highly successful singer. She is the first female UK artist to have six top 10 UK chart singles from one album. Mixing a soul and RnB inspired vocal with hip-hop, electro and dance beats, Jessie has drawn comparisons with the likes of Pink and Amy Winehouse. It's a truly modern, eclectic sound that has proven very popular across the UK, Ireland, the USA and all over the world.
Jessie comes from a musical family and was performing in front of audiences from a young age in musicals and bands. After attending the BRIT Academy and graduating in the same class as both Leona Lewis and Adele, Jessie found success as a song-writer working for Sony Music. Lava Records noticed Jessie's wider talents and under their management she released her first single, Do It Like A Dude, which hit number two in the UK singles chart. The follow-up, Price Tag, reached No. 1 in the UK and charted in the USA Billboards. Her first album, Who You Are, was released in early 2011 and entered the UK chart at number two, while also making top 10 entries in many other charts worldwide. The video became a huge hit online and her star was quickly on the rise. A sell-out UK tour followed along with the opportunity to support Katy Perry on tour and to collaborate on a song with James Morrison.
Her second album, titled Alive, was released in early 2012 and reached number three in the UK album chart. It featured a host of collaborators, including Cee Lo Green and Dizzee Rascal, and was followed up by Jessie's first arena tour, taking in the likes of the London O2 and Dublin's Phoenix Park. Singles released from the album include It's My Party and Wild, which was released on iTunes to promote the new album. Jessie has been nominated for and won a host of BRIT Awards, MTV Europe Awards and MOBOs, including the prestigious Critics' Choice BRIT Award in 2011.
With a voice that draws comparisons to soul singers combined with a very modern, hip-hop fused rapping style, Jessie J is a unique talent. She cites artists such as Pink, Fatboy Slim and Katy Perry as her musical influences. In 2012 and 2013 she appeared as a judge on the BBC talent show, The Voice, and in 2013 she famously shaved her head to raise money for Comic Relief.
She also won China’s version of The X Factor in 2018, with over a billion people tuning in to watch her version of Whitney Houston’s I Will Always Love You.
