Jessie J is a British singer. Born in 1988, she first came to fame when her single “Do It Like A Dude” hit number two in the UK. Singles “LaserLight”, “Nobody’s Perfect”, “Who You Are”, “Domino”, and “Price Tag” all hit the top ten in the UK, making her the first British female artist to achieve six top ten singles in the UK. The latter two became top twenty-five hits in the US, with “Domino” peaking at six and “Price Tag” hitting twenty-three.
Jessie J’s second album, Alive, became a UK-only release. The three singles, “Wild”, “It’s My Party”, and “Thunder” all hit the top twenty in the UK, with the first two making top-five. On the album charts, it hit three and went gold.
Her third album, Sweet Talker, was released internationally, and preceded by the smash single “Bang Bang” featuring Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj. In the UK, it went straight to the top of the charts, while in the US, it debuted at number six, tying her highest peak. Eventually, it hit number three, becoming Jessie’s highest peak, Grande’s second-highest, and Minaj’s tied-for-highest. (Minaj later surpassed her peak with her number two single, “Anaconda”.) “Bang Bang” also hit the top ten in Australia, Canada, Denmark, and New Zealand. The next single, “Burnin' Up” was less successful, although it cracked the top 100 in both the US and UK. Third single “Sweet Talker” was released in only the UK/Ireland, and fourth single “Masterpiece” hit the US Hot 100, but only managed a 159 peak in the UK.
