One of the benefits of writing for DJBooth is constantly being introduced to new music. UK singer and hit-song writer Jessie J is frankly news to me, though that makes me feel a little off my game. How could I not know about the woman who has penned songs for Alicia Keys, Miley Cyrus, Chris Brown and countless other A-list voices? For her first DJBooth feature, Jessie is stepping out on the solo tip with Price Tag, a new single featuring ATL’s B.o.B. Jessie is vocally stunning here, with skills wedged somewhere between her fellow Englanders Joss Stone and Lily Allen, with the tongue and cheek lyrical appeal of the latter. Producer Dr. Luke creates an easy going, guitar laden track while B.o.B spits typically high quality rhymes about how the value of music cannot be measured in dollars. No doubt about it, Price Tag is a feel good record you can’t help but sing along to. If Jessie J’s upcoming album Who You Are is all this good, we’ll not only be humming the songs she’s written for others, but singing along to her own priceless music.
