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!

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.”
