BBC Radio 1Xtra's Hot 4 2011: Jessie J - Do It Like A Dude
Jessie J is on a one way ticket to the mainstream in 2011 according to 1Xtra DJs and staff. The singer/songwriter has been a name on everyone’s lips in the last few months and 2011 is sure to be the breakthrough year for the starlet in waiting. After already having written for the likes of Alicia Keys, Chris Brown and a number 1 US smash for Miley Cyrus, Jessie is set to take the world by storm in her own right this year. She has already been included in the BBC Sound of 2011 list, as well as winning the BRITs Critics’ Choice Award for 2011. With celeb fans in the form of Justin Timberlake, Kylie and Perez Hilton, this 22-year-old from Essex has spent time in America, catching the attention of the legendary L.A. Reid and landing herself a place on the Chris Brown tour. A YouTube sensation, Jessie now has her own online TV show called Dare Jessie, with N-Dubz among stars setting her dares. 1Xtra was first to playlist her debut single Do It Like A Dude.
