Fresh from shaping the sound of tomorrow on The Voice, our favourite shaven-headed popstrel Jessie J has only gone and released a brand new single from her second album out on us! Excited! But is it the triumphant return of a true British popstar or the first stumbling signs of ‘difficult second album syndrome’?
Fortunately, we’re delighted to say that her single ‘Wild’ is a stuttering electropop delight that full of gritty urban-styled verses and an absolute skyscraper of a chorus that deserves to be played across both sides of the Atlantic at full blast. The guest features are pretty cool too – while US rapper dynamo Big Sean struts his stuff, it’s really the grimy guest feature of our favourite bonkers gentleman Dizzee Rascal who shines here, a nice return for him to the echelons of British pop.
Add all this to a stylish black and white video that shows off Jessie’s new hair (or lack thereof), her incredible pins and the swaggering grin-a-minute fun of Dizzee and Sean, and we’re some very happy campers! Jessie, it’s so nice to have you back in our earbuds once more!
Our verdict? Download all the way!
