After what feels like forever, Jess Glynne has finally released her debut album ‘I Cry When I Laugh’ and although it’s not strictly pop, we are in love with it. ‘I Cry When I Laugh’ is the perfect summer album and we’re pretty sure we’ll be playing it for months and months to come.
Now we’re bringing you the five best things about Jess’ debut album and telling you why you should run to the shops and pick up a copy.
As you’ll probably know by now, Jess Glynne has become the second British female solo artist to score five UK number ones, and four of those number one singles feature on ‘I Cry When I Laugh’. Those singles are ‘Hold My Hand’, Route 94 collaboration ‘My Love’ and Clean Bandit smash hit ‘Rather Be’ and current number one ‘Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself’.
All together now… “I’M READY FOR THIS, THERE’S NO DENYING.”
Remember Emeli Sande? The massive powerhouse vocalist behind Professor Green’s ‘Read All About It’ and her own hit singles ‘Next To Me’ (ooh-hoo!) and ‘Clown’? Well, she makes her return to music with a duet on Jess’ debut. The track ‘Saddest Vanilla’ is one of the album’s highlights.
Aside from the Emeli Sande duet, ‘I Cry When I Laugh’ also features some other great ballads such as ‘Take Me Home’. The album also slows down towards the end of the deluxe edition with an acoustic performance of Jess’ duet with Route 94 ‘My Love’.
Aside from the ballads, other amazing tracks on the album are found in the form of ‘Gave Me Something’, ‘Ain’t Got Far To Go’, ‘Love Me’, ‘No Rights No Wrongs’, and ‘Bad Blood’ (not a Taylor Swift cover).
We all know that Jess’ latest single ‘Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself’ is one of the best pop songs of recent times and in context of this album, it sounds even more amazing.
