Price Tag

I recently found out about Jessie J, an artist out of London that hit the U.S. stage not too long ago, and I'm digging her style and content. Here's a dead-on description of her vocal style, as I see it, from her bio.

"Mix a bit of Rihanna with Gwen Stefani, add the charisma of Pink, and you will start to get an idea of what kind of girl Jessie J is. As much as she can be a voice for the hard times, those soulful, Aretha Franklin-esque vocals can also soundtrack the best of times too. Take the Dr. Luke (Katy Perry, Kelly Clarkson, Miley Cyrus) produced song "Price Tag"—an upbeat, energetic dance number that highlights Jessie’s booming voice and can still stand out amidst glossy production."

Take a listen to "Price Tag," and you decide if the description is accurate.

Jessie J has a refreshing style. I love the description. It will be fun to follow her career as she expands to the United States. She rocked SNL a few weeks back!
