Jessie J - A true great Britain. Listen to her great songs.

Updated on October 8, 2013
  • Name: Jessica Ellen Cornish
  • Better known as: Jessie J
  • Job: Singer/songwriter
  • Born: 27th March 1988
  • Height: 1.75m (5'9'')

A little about her

Jessie J became an overnight sensation when her debut album, 'Who you are', yielded six top ten singles in England. These songs you will recognise as :

  • Do it like a Dude - released on 18th November 2010
  • Price tag - released on 25th January 2011
  • Nobody's Perfect - released on 27 May 2011
  • Who's laughing now - released on 26 August 2011
  • Domino - released on 29 August 2011
  • Who are you - released on November 2011

Her amazing vocals and in-your-face attitude made her a hit with many fans and yet recently she wanted to address some misconceptions about herself:

"When I look back, I can see why people thought I was aggressive," she says. "My first single, Do it like a Dude, resulted in a lot of misconceptions about me. I'm confident, but I'm not arrogant.

"My attitude goes back to my childhood. I used to audition for theatrical roles, and you can't stand out in a room full of ambitious eight year old girls by acting the wallflower. I realised then that I couldn't do things half-heartedly."

"The songs are an exaggeration of my feelings. If I'm on a bus and someone makes my blood boil, I'll pocket those emotions and put them in a song. I was offered songs, but I couldn't walk in someone else's shoes. The sentiments have to be real."

3 of her best from her first album

I have included a few versions of Jessie's work. They are all the acoustic version to show off her amazing vocals.

'Do it like a dude' Acoustic version

'Price tag' Acoustic version

'Nobodys perfect' Acoustic version

Jessie's second album - Alive

Jessie J seems to have been around for a long time, with her time on the judging panel of the voice in England as well as shaving her head for Comic Relief, and yet she has only just released her second album, Alive.

She is best known for her stunning vocals and sexy attitude and I am sure she will shake up the British music scene once again. 'Alive' is as good an album as her first stunning collection, with diverse mix of sounds and it is clear that the start wants to really connect to those who listen with very personal lyrics that you can't help but admire her for.

Here are a few samples of the songs from this amazing album:

Jessie J - Wild

Wild lyrics

If I go hard, let me tell you that is worth it 
Play the right cards, I ain't affraid to work it
Brushing right off, when they say I don't deserve it
Hands on my heart, you keep my fire burning

Ooh it feels so crazy when you scream my name
Love it when you rock me over every day
When I think about it I can go insane
Here we are as beautiful, I'm blown away

If this is a dream, won't open my eyes
Am I asleep? No, I'm alive
I just can't believe that this is my life
In my fantasy we're running wild

If this is a dream, won't open my eyes,
Am I asleep? No, I'm alive
I just can't believe that this is my life
In my fantasy we're running wild. 

When it get wet, then the rain starts pourting
I turn up the heat cuz the drama ain't important
Let em all talk talk, I'mma just ignore it
Hands on my heart, you you keep me moving forward. 

Ooh it feel so crazy when they scream my name

(Big Sean) 
B.I.G Sean Duh, OK
Today I woke up feeling like the mayor
I spend about an hour looking in the mirror
As I should, as much as I've been through
It's a wonder I look this damn good
I could probably make it out any situation that you try to put me in to
If I swim with the piranhas guaranteed that I'mma probably have a fish dinner
I met a young girl with a sexy shape like Jessie J
The we escapade
Where it's extra shape
She makes me want to give in not take like collection plates
Woah
All the awards, bras, cars, wall to wall
Is all a mirage
And I could lose it all tonight
Just to show the world I could do it twice
This is my life

(Jessie J) 

If this is a dream, won't open my eyes,
Am I asleep? No, I'm alive
I just can't believe that this is my life
In my fantasy we're running wild. 

If this is a dream, won't open my eyes,
Am I asleep? No, I'm alive
I just can't believe that this is my life
In my fantasy we're running wild.

Di-Di-Di-Dizzee

(Dizzee Rascal)

Rass Collar, double the dollar
I'm a jetsetter, brother more hits than a white collar
But I can't be boxed
Flow tight like Bob Marley's locks
I can't be dropped
I'm at the peark and I can't be topped
I'm wilding out
I've lost the plot
I can't be stopped
Pull up in a Narley Warri, buy me what?
Opposite, I can't believe
If I'll ever get the party what? I can't be blocked
10 years plus running the game
You britons just come in the game
But now I'm coming again
To get the people going dumb and insane
A hundred thousand people going bonkers in the mother marine
Women on shoulders, tops off, shouting my name
I'm all in their brain
Why would I complain?
I thought I was the boy in the corner
But I'm in a penthouse
Now your boy is a bawler
I'm living 

(Jessie J)

If this is a dream, won't open my eyes
Am I asleep? No, I'm alive
I just can't believe that this is my life
In my fantasy we're running wild

If this is a dream, won't open my eyes
Am I asleep? No, I'm alive
I just can't believe that this is my life
In my fantasy we're running wild

(Outro)
Wild wild wi-wild
Woohooh 
Wild wild wi-wild
Woohooh
Wild wild wi-wild
Woohooh
Wild wild wi-wild
Woohooh

'It's my party' Lyrics

You're stuck in the playground
and I'm a grown woman now
Considering you hate me
You're stalking like you made me
So why you acting like you're tough
But now I fight you, had enough
Don't you get tired of being rude

Awwww, come and give me a hg dude. 
Let's go! 

It's my party, I do do what I want (do do what I want)
So while you sit and watch me
I keep dancing alone, da-dancing alone
So put this record on, and keep it goin' till I say stop
If you were wondering if I give a damn, well I do not 'cause 
it's my party, I do do what I want (do do what I want)
(Woah-oh, Woah-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh) [x2]

I think it's time you realize
You're only wasting your time
Addicted to attention, you need an intervention
So while you acting like you're sick
Sitting around and talking shit
Don't you get tired of being alone

Awww, your only friend is your phone

OWWWW!

OW! It's my party, I do, do what I want (do, do what I want)
So while you sit and watch me
I keep dancing alone, da-dancing alone
So put this record on and keep it going 'til I say, "Stop!"
If you were wondering if I give a damn, well, I do not
'Cause it's my party, I do, do what I want (do, do what I want)
(Woah-oh, Woah-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh) x2

You think I speak too much, I don't care, don't care
You think I tweet too much, I don't care, don't care
You think my clothes are crazy, I don't care, don't care
Well maybe I'm crazy, cray cray cray c'mon! 

It's my party, I do, do what I want (do, do what I want)
So while you sit and watch me
I keep dancing alone, da-dancing alone (alone)
So put this record on and keep it going 'till I say, "Stop!" 
If you were wondering if I give a damn, well, I do not
'Cause it's my party, I do, do what I want (do, do what I want) 
(Woah-oh, woah-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh) x2
