About 3 months ago, we had the pleasure of bringing you the first installment of The Boombox Series, in which Giant Step and Arcade 44 find bold emerging artists willing to throw themselves out there, supported only by a boombox. But before we could even share this experience, our unknown artist – Jessie J – exploded into everyone’s favorite new pop star. Her highly-anticipated album Who You Are comes out next week, April 12th.

This isn’t quite volume two of The Boombox Series, but rather an extra from our first set. That day in the subway, Jessie sang “Who You Are,” captured in the first video, but she also started in on her duet with B.o.B., “Price Tag.” [Official Video]
