After one listen to a track from her new album, Who You Are, it’s clear the extraordinary Jessie J stands alone. Her Lava/Universal Republic debut album, Who You Are, showcases the skills of a gifted lyricist while highlighting an unforgettable journey. “I feel like my album is an example of what exists in the world of music right now. It’s like my album is an iPod…  it’s like when you go clubbing these days, you don’t have a pop room and a separate R&B room, they’re all together. People just appreciate great music…”

Check out the acoustic version of “Do It Like A Dude“ and an office favorite, “Mama Knows Best.”
