Jessie J fans got a special treat recently. While in London, the singer gave fans a preview of her new single “It’s My Party.” After they heard the track, they sang along line by line in her single teaser on the streets of London.
Store owners, bikers, construction workers and random bystanders took part in the 80-second clip, which she revealed on YouTube earlier today (August 2). Watch below.
“It’s My Party” is the follow-up to “Wild,” which features Big Sean. The song will premiere in its entirety on Monday (August 5). Jessie J recently revealed her new single and filled fans in on what to expect from her forthcoming album during a chat with fans on Google hangout.
Currently working on her sophomore album, while a release date is TBD Jessie J recently revealed that she’s been collaborating with Calvin Harris and Dr. Luke on the follow-up to her debut LP Who You Are.
“The first album I felt like a lot of the songs were reassurance to myself of being somebody that wanted to fit in. When I was 16, 17 writing ‘Big White Room,’ ‘Stand Up, ‘Mama Knows Best’ and ‘Rainbow,’ I felt like I always had to have a happy ending and had to reassure myself,” she said in the Google chat. “Looking back, I feel like this album is a real reflection of the woman I’m going to be forever. For me that’s the obvious difference. I’m not afraid of pain. It just feels more like me. It is more of a cohesive piece of art. I’m very proud of it and I feel like it’s going to shock people and that’s what I want to do.”
Who You Are debuted at No. 11 on the Billboard 200 and featured her hit “Price Tag,” which went to No. 1 in the U.K. and 18 in other countries. In the U.S., the song peaked at No. 23 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and introduced Jessie J – a songwriter behind big hits like Miley Cyrus‘ “Party in the USA” – to the American mainstream.
