Jessie J Career
Jessie J was signed to Gut Records, recording an album for the label, but the company went bankrupt before any material was released. She then found success as a songwriter, gaining a Sony ATV publishing contract. She was also the support act for Cyndi Lauper during Lauper’s UK dates of her 2008 Bring Ya to the Brink tour (Lauper invited J to join her on stage for the performances of “Girls Just Want To Have Fun”). Jessie has also written lyrics for artists such as Chris Brown and Miley Cyrus, including “Party in the U.S.A.”. Jessie J was also part of a girl band, called Soul Deep, for two years, however, believing “it wasn’t going anywhere,” she left the group.
Despite people thinking that her first notoriety was through YouTube, Jessie was signed for four years before her first video was posted. Jessie first came to the attention of Lava Records when her publisher at Sony/ATV, Rich Christina, sent Lava president Jason Flom a link to her MySpace page, which the record executive loved. After seeing an impressive US showcase, Lava, along with several other labels, was keen to sign the artist but progress was hampered by her management’s insistence on, what Flom called, a “crazy deal”, and their refusal to let Jessie speak to any labels directly.
Despite this, Senior Director of A&R at Lava, Harinder Rana, made surreptitious efforts to meet Jessie on her own in winter of 2008. Later in the year a change in management to Sarah Stennett and Nadia Khan of Crown Music allowed record deal negotiations to take place. Jessie eventually signed with Lava as part of a joint venture with Universal Republic.
Jessie began recording her debut studio album in 2005 and it was completed on 19 January 2011. She revealed that “Big White Room” would be on the album and was written from an experience she had when she was 11 years old, although she wrote the song at age 17, in hospital, where a ward mate, a little boy, died. Jessie J says the album’s title track, “Who You Are”, is one of her proudest creations, she said the song is a “positive role model for young people” and “I always say that I’m half-artist, half-therapist”.
A song called “Sexy Silk”, which appears on the Easy A soundtrack, was originally going to be her first single. However, in late 2010 Jessie J released her first single, “Do It Like a Dude” which was co-written with George Astasio, Tj Normandin, Jason Pebworth, Jon Shave, Kyle Abrahams and Peter Ighile. Originally, she wrote the song with Rihanna in mind because “Rude Boy” was released at the time, partly inspiring the song. She then sent the song to her label, Island Records, before sending it to Rihanna’s management. Island insisted the song become Jessie J’s first single. She wishes to perform the song with Rihanna at one point.
The single gained positive reception from critics. The single charted at number two on the UK Singles Chart. Her follow-up single “Price Tag” was released in late January 2011. It was written by Jessie J, Dr. Luke, Claude Kelly, and B.o.B and peaked at number one on the UK Singles Chart. “Price Tag” was released in the US on 1 February 2011 and peaked at 23 on the Billboard Hot 100. “Price Tag” also charted at number-one in New Zealand and Ireland and is the most successful online video J has released. Her first American television appearance was as the musical guest on NBC’s Saturday Night Live on 12 March 2011.
On 25 February 2011 her debut album, Who You Are, was released. The album first entered the UK Albums Chart on 6 March 2011 where it charted at number two. The album charted into the top ten in a number of countries and number 11 in the US. After the release she went on to release a third single from the album, “Nobody’s Perfect”. MTV reported that the single is, so far, only confirmed for release in the United Kingdom. The album’s fourth single was “Who’s Laughing Now”.
“Domino” was her second US single. The Dr. Luke-produced track was sent to mainstream radio on 6 September 2011.

For her appearance at Glastonbury Festival 2011 on 25 June 2011, she performed on the throne again, stating that her doctor had told her not to perform with her broken foot which would take six weeks to heal. Jessie J was scheduled to play at several festivals throughout the summer, however it was reported on 1 July 2011 that she would not be able to attend T in the Park, T4 on the Beach, Wembley:Orange, iTunes Festival, Lovebox, and Oxegen due to the injuries to her foot.
Her record label released an official statement on 30 June 2011 that under strict orders from her doctor, she would not be able to perform for a number of weeks so that she could recuperate properly. She returned to the concert circuit in late August, including sets at the V Festival and The Big Chill. At the 2011 MTV VMA’s she was still in a cast and using the throne.
