Listen to the First Single by Jessie J: “Who You Are”

[kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/lHYhErv_fWQ" width="550" height="445" allowfullscreen="true" fvars="fs=1" /]

Check out the first single from the buzzworthy Jessie J, whose debut album will be out on Lava Records / Universal Republic later this year. The title track, “Who You Are” is about a point in Jessie’s career where the singer’s aspirations were hanging on a thread. “The most important thing in life is to be happy, but everything had become too ‘business’ and sterile. I really thought I was going to quit — not music, but the music industry … it wasn’t easy,” Jessie states. “I was really down, but when I’m down, I write a song about it.” (After the jump, check out a trailer for the video.)

Collaborator / producer Dr. Luke : ”Jessie J has one of the best voices I have ever heard. She is a hit songwriter with her voice and a lot to say.”

There’s also a private Jessie J showcase in NYC tonight at 7pm. We happen to have 1 pair of giveaway tickets – if you want em, comment or tweet us!
