Although Jessica Ellen Cornish, a.k.a. Jessie J, had already composed hits for international superstars such as Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera and Alicia Keys, it wasn’t until she launched her first single as a singer/songwriter that she hit the "big time." The song, called "Do It Like a Dude," reached the #2 spot on the iTunes charts when it was launched in 2010.
In February 2011, Jessie released her debut album, Who You Are. The album not only climbed up the British music charts but also consolidated her as one of the great promises of the international pop scene.
The 22-year-old artist, named the BRIT Awards Critics Choice 2011, has been pegged as the "best singer in the world right now" by Justin Timberlake.
Jessie has not only gained notoriety for her talent, but also for her personal life. According to reports, the openly bisexual singer said in March of 2011, "If I meet someone and I like them, I don’t care if they're a boy or a girl."
