International pop sensation, Jessie J is about to send her devoted Australian fans into a Cha-Ching Cha-Ching and Ba-Bling Ba-Bling frenzy as she announces her first headline tour of Australia in March 2012!
Jessie J’s latest single, ‘Domino’, produced by Dr Luke, has taken the Australian airwaves by storm and was the #1 Most Added Track At Radio a week before its official service date!
The singer who released her debut album ‘Who You Are’ in March 2011, featuring the hits, ‘Price Tag’, ‘Nobody’s Perfect’, ‘Do It Like A Dude’ and ‘Who You Are’, returns to Australia after her much lauded May promo tour where she blew her fans and critics away showcasing her exceptional vocal abilities alongside her unquestionable song writing flair. Her impressive talent prompted Jonathon Moran from the Sunday Telegraph to gush, “There are quite a few perks to this job, but seeing British singer Jessie J up close and personal in such an intimate venue is certainly one of the highlights of the year so far.” 08.05.2011
After bursting onto the scene in November 2010, the 22-year-old Jessie J has had a wildly successful
2011 with her smash single, ‘Price Tag’ reaching the top of the Australian Airplay Charts and #2 on the ARIA Singles Chart and selling in excess of four times Platinum copies. The single debuted at #1 in the UK, Ireland and New Zealand and it was even covered by Future Entertainment and Mellen Events’ favourites The Wombats on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge in May!
Before heading to Australia, the Essex-born beauty will be embarking on her most ambitious UK tour to date throughout October and November and she has also graced the stages of the biggest music festivals including slots at Glastonbury, T In The Park and V Festival. Jessie J recently had the honour of being confirmed as the house DJ at the MTV VMA’s held in LA last month, performing her hits ‘Price Tag’ and ‘Domino’ as well as spinning tunes for the likes of Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Bruno Mars and Adele.
The road to Jessie J’s incredible success hasn’t always been smooth sailing, she suffered health problems throughout her early career and a minor stroke temporarily halted her career at the age of 18. Undeterred, the singer has returned with renewed focus. With her powerhouse of a voice and her incredibly catchy songs, Jessie J looks set to take on the likes of Beyonce and P!nk, having already written tracks for Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys, Jessie J has toured with Chris Brown across Europe and has also supported Cyndi Lauper and Macy Gray. Justin Timberlake declared: “Who is the best singer in the world right now? Jessie J” and Kylie Minogue and Paloma Faith have also sung the praises of
the talented singer songwriter.
The Guardian (UK) nicely sums up the Jessie J phenomenon by stating “People in this country love big strong voices that hit high notes and blast you with hurricane force, and Jessie J’s is one of those. And she can do it live…it works unadorned, it doesn’t need machines to make it sound ‘good’…But she’s more than just A Voice. She writes, too – not just doodles in her bedroom; we mean songs. Hit songs.” 04.11.2010
With over 2 million Facebook fans, over 200 million video views online and almost 1 million Twitter followers, Jessie J is definitely an artist set to continue to rise to the top and Australian fans of all ages won’t want to miss this opportunity to witness this superb pop star on her first Australian headline tour!
