Hot Video Alert: Jessie J - Nobody's Perfect
UK phenom Jessie J has announced plans to release "Nobody's Perfect" as her official third single in the UK on May 23rd and I think it's a good choice. The song has a big chorus which really showcases Jessie J's vocal talent in it's best light. Previous singles "Do It Like A Dude" and "Price Tag" both featured little bursts of impressive vocals but on "Nobody's Perfect," we get a whole song full! Sure, Jessie still lets out the occasional growl, "Y-EAH!" or riff but "Nobody's Perfect" should prove to all the haters that she has legitimate talent. Frankly, I'm surprised that she has so many haters. Sure, her label (Lava/Universal Republic in the U.S. and Universal/Island in the UK) has been throwing a lot of resources at Jessie J, trying to make her a star but the truth of the matter is - she is a star. She has the look. She has the talent. It's a shame that all artists don't get the full backing of their labels but in Jessie J's case, I'm just saying that it's deserved. The girl has undeniable talent.
In typical Jessie J fashion, the Emil Nava-directed video, which premiered on April 14th, is a lot of fun. The video has a whole Alice In Wonderland vs. The Shining vibe going on, complete with a cast of colorful characters, brightly colored costumes, makeup and Jessie J looking simply fabulous throughout. I love it!
Jessie J's debut album Who You Are just came out here in America and seems to be off to a good start. The album is currently in the Top Ten on the iTunes album charts. Who You Are, which came out in the UK at the end of February, made it all the way to #2 on the UK Albums Chart. Her singles have also been performing well in the UK with first single "Do It Like A Dude" peaking at #2 on the UK Singles Chart and "Price Tag" going all the way to the top. Over here in America "Price Tag" was a Top 40 hit, peaking at #40 on the Billboard Hot 100. I guess we'll have to see how Who You Are does on the Billboard charts this week. I'm hoping for a strong debut. Considering how hard her U.S. label has been pushing her, it could happen! Appearances on Saturday Night Live and Jay Leno could only help things along here in the States. Do your part by downloading Who You Are on iTunes HERE. In the meantime, make sure you check out this new remix for "Nobody's Perfect" by Netsky and remember that the single will be released in the UK on May 23rd.
