I stare at my reflection in the mirror, why am I doing this to myself – don’t lose who you are, in the blur of the stars, just be true to who you are
I know I’ve been posting about ‘BBC Sound of 2011′ Poll winner Jessie J a lot but I feel like sharing another track of hers with you given the positive feedback I received when I posted “Price Tag” featuring B.o.B and given the fact that I’ve been able to give her debut album the time of day and I must say I’m very impressed. Some critics say it’s under produced but I like the fact that some of the songs sound more raw and are not as commercially inclined as the singles she has released.
With Adele‘s “Someone Like You” giving ballads hope on charts around the world I thought I’d share the title track from Jessie’s album (Who You Are) with you today. The arrangement is very well done and I like the acoustic sound with Jessie’s voice. You can take a listen to the studio version of the song above but I also want you to check out a live performance she did earlier this year on a subway in the US where she introduced herself to America in a promo video featured for her “Boombox Series” marketing initiative. If you’re still doubting her talent after watching the video below you should probably just give up on the world because there is no denying that her voice is one of the best out there at the moment and I know she’s going to go very, very far.
