Product Description

Product Description

Jessie J’s debut album Who You Are repackaged as a special Platinum Edition. As well as the massive hits "Price Tag" featuring B.o.B, "Do it Like A Dude", "Nobody’s Perfect", "Who’s Laughing Now" and "Who You Are", it includes brand new tracks "Domino", "My Shadow" and "Laserlight".

Who You Are
is the debut album from London's Jessie J (real name Jessica Cornish), winner of the prestigious Brits Critic's Choice and BBC Sound of 2011 awards. Before releasing her debut single "Do it Like a Dude", Jessie had already written songs for the likes of Justin Timberlake, Alicia Keys and Christina Aguilera. The album includes the singles "Price Tag" (featuring B.o.B.) and "Do it Like a Dude".

BBC Review

It’s all well and good having a multi-octave voice, but without control it’s an accident waiting to happen. Jessie J – born Jessica Cornish in Redbridge – rushes up and down her scales on this anticipated debut album; but there’s more than one occasion where her fluctuating pitch is a pain in the ear.

The frustration doesn’t end there. As evidenced by her breakthrough debut single, Do It Like a Dude, Cornish has an annoying habit of inserting zany tics where songs would benefit from being played straighter (one Ke$ha is quite enough, thanks). A pretty acoustic ballad, Big White Room – recorded live, applause included – is ruined by unnecessary gymnastics. A shame, as when she’s not overreaching Cornish showcases sweet, if unspectacular, vocals.

The songs of Who You Are are expectedly split between slower, slushier affairs and punchy anthems for bolshy teens, those coming to this collection off the back of Do It Like a Dude. If modern pop-lore is to be believed, said track was originally written with Rihanna in mind (Cornish has a background in co-writing material for other artists). While the decision to keep it makes it clear Who’s Laughing Now (more bad-attitude swagger), it’s a lightweight Rude Boy rip-off masquerading as confrontational thug-pop. Hearing a BRIT School girl from London’s suburbs deliver lines derived from Caribbean slang is uncomfortable, and in terms of female empowerment the lyrics make Alexandra Burke’s Broken Heels sound like Independent Women Part 1.

Mamma Knows Best brings a big-band-trapped-in-a-synthesizer sound to the fore, more Pixie Lott than Ain’t No Other Man-period Christina Aguilera. Better is the following L.O.V.E., which walks the line between affecting and aggressive superbly, Cornish’s snarl balanced by a tender side that rarely makes an appearance; if one could squint their ears, it’d be a ringer for something from The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill (and that’s serious praise). The title-track returns Cornish to an acoustic accompaniment, and makes for a fine closer – it’s her Hometown Glory, without the raw emotion but touching nonetheless.

With Cornish’s profile at a high and awards in the bag, Who You Are is a guaranteed commercial hit. What it’s not, though, is a collection that confirms the arrival of a significant solo talent. It’s too patchy, too hurried, the powers behind it too eager to capitalise on the artist’s current chart success. There’s ample room for improvement, but given the well-documented hurdles Cornish has already overcome one shouldn’t write her off just yet. When the pressure’s lifted, she could conjure up a classic.

I ordered this CD for my sister as a gift for valentines day, she loves it and I can't get her to stop listening to it. The CD arrived in good time, and I was very impressed with the packaging. Be warned, the CD contains explicit content. (I didn't realise until I listened through it) but apart from that, the CD is fantastic and is a must buy for Jessie J fans.

Format: Audio CD
Better late than never. This Old Wolf that is! Jessica Cornish
seems to have arrived at exactly the right time. I heard the
singles; I saw the music videos; I liked what I'd heard and seen.
What I hadn't been quite prepared for with the debut album is
just what an extraordinarily good singer Ms J. is. World Class
at 23 and then some! I didn't need to listen much futher than the
live recording of 'Big White Room'. The room errupts with amazement
and palpable affection. I shouted too (much to Mrs Wolf's surprise!)
It is a phenomenal performance by any standard known to man or beast!

The magic doesn't stop there however. Ms J. knows how to write a good
tune and there are thirteen of them here. This girl has SOUL. Natural,
abundant and free as the wind. The voice is wonderfully flexible and
unaffected. 'Casualty Of Love' is another terrific example of her
ability to find the heart of a song and run with it; the glorious
arabesques and decorations spin out into the air like silver fireworks.
It's very clear that she doesn't have to think about it that much :
it just comes out that way! (To think that this is just the beginning!)

I tend to gravitate towards the ballads and torch songs in any R&B
collection but there's one heck of a lot of funky fun to be had here too.

Of the uptempo numbers 'Who's Laughing Now' is a particularly feisty
example. It's pretty near impossible not to get out of your rocking
chair, kick off your slippers and dance! Ms J. demonstrates her razor
sharp larynx and wit to fine effect. So too with 'Do It Like A Dude'.

The stupendous retro burlesque shenanigans of 'Mamma Know's Best'
gives Ms Aguilera a run for her money.

My daughter asked for this album and I was wary as I expected it to have some bad language in, I checked online and found no warning so ordered it. As I wasn't convinced I listened to the album myself once it arrived to find too much bad language to consider allowing my 9 year old to have the album, that aside it is a great listen, just not while the kiddies are around :o)

My Daughter kept on and on for a Jessie J CD for her 8th birthday wasnt any hassle to get hold of one for her so I bought it for her but dont know if I missed anything in the write up but had no warning that there was any swear words on the CD. There were quite a few really strong one that I dont want her singing along to shame because quite enjoyed listening to the rest of it.

I rather like Jessie J. I rather like her music too. I would also be first in line to defend music made for adults, artists being able to express themselves how they wish, and record labels running a business profitably.

However (and it's a big however), it's utterly inexcusable that a CD should be on sale that contains graphic language and sexual content without having the industry-standard warning. Especially one that the record company knows full well will appeal to a younger audience. This smacks of a deliberate ploy since there is a Parental Guidance label which is almost illegibly small and printed in a corner on the back.

To add insult to injury, they have seen fit to re-issue the original album with a few extra tracks. Since the album was already popular (and thus didn't need to be brought to our attention à la Fleet Foxes first CD being re-issued with a later EP), this is just profiteering. It rewards only those people who haven't yet bought the album and penalises all those who have already made the record company (and Jessie J) a bunch of cash. Of course the extra tracks can be downloaded individually, but this is more expensive (remember, young audience) than getting them with an album.

Pretty much an indictment of the industry all round, and one which harms both Jessie J and her fans but not, I suspect, her label.

I bought this for my 11 year old daughter but was suprised by the amount of strong language on it as the cd gave no indication of any.

I bought this for my 10 year old daughter, she absolutely loves Jessie J, but I was shocked to find out that a couple of the songs use explicit lyrics, dont know why they have to be included expecially when she must know youngsters want to buy her songs!
