She may not have her trademark hairstyle anymore, but Jessie J is churning out the hits just like before. Alive is the second album performed and written by Jessie, charting at number 3 in the UK's official album chart on entry.
Being a pop loving girl myself, my favourite tracks on this album are undoubtably the fast ones. It's My Party and Wild (ft. Big Sean and Dizzee Rascal) stand out to me and it looks like the record label agrees, as these are the first two singles to come from the album. Sexy Lady is also a very strong song with a great beat. It entered the chart last week (5/10/13) at number 22 despite not officially being released as a single. I can see Gold being released as a single in the near future as it is a great song to sing-a-long with.
In contrast to the strong sounds of the previously mentioned tracks, I Miss Her is a very beautiful song. The lyrics are very touching and Jessie performs it flawlessly. Following the contrast route, Excuse My Rude (ft. Becky G) has a really dirty beat but is quite repetitive which makes it difficult to listen to too many times.
If you were a fan of Who You Are, you will enjoy this record. With her classic sound still very much there and her distinctive voice, along with the large variety of tracks, this album is very listenable.
Until next time,
