How Did Jessie J Became Famous

By Tiara

After launching her music career as a singer with R&B songs, such as “Price Tag” and “Diamonds,” in early 2012, British recording artist Jessie J decided to try something new by incorporating hip hop into her music.

Her first attempt at this was for her song "Bang Bang," which featured American rapper Lil Wayne. Since then, she has continued to experiment with different styles of rapping while staying true to her singing style.

Her popularity grew quickly, leading to collaborations with artists like Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj, Meghan Trainor, and more. She is also known for writing some of her own songs including her most recent track, "Burn."

Jessie's rise to fame comes from her catchy lyrics and vocals that appeal to all types of people. While not your average musician, she does have her share of loyal followers and fans.

Had a song go viral

Back in May of 2016, British singer-songwriter Jessicah Thirsk released her track “Bounce”. The song quickly went viral, reaching number one on both the Billboard Dance Chart and YouTube music charts.

Many people noticed how catchy the lyrics were as well as the rhythm of the song. Many also noted that the beat sounded familiar but they could not figure out what it was at first.

It is clear now that most of the beats in this song are heavily inspired by those found in popular songs from earlier in the year. This includes parts where the song sounds like it has an intro, pre-chorus, chorus, and/or break down.

This article will discuss some of the similarities between these parts of the song and other songs and why they work so well when combined together.

Signed a record deal

After graduating high school in 2006, singer-songwriter Jessica O’Brien decided to pursue her dreams of being a musician. In fact, she had her music career mapped out already – she would spend her days writing songs at home before taking them to a studio to work on them.

O’Brien was determined to make it as a songwriter so she could earn a living from her craft, but she also wanted to be famous like other singers.

So, she took matters into her own hands and set about meeting with professional musicians to see if they would help her get more recording contracts by recommending her for work.

She didn't have much money saved up, but she did have something valuable that many people don’t - she knew how to sing!

With this knowledge and her passion for music clearly displayed, O'Brien approached several well known artists to try and get their backing as an aspiring performer. Luckily, she wasn't alone in this effort, as there are now even videos online showing off her impressive singing skills.

Her efforts paid off when she landed a contract with Island Records, one of the most successful labels in the industry. Since then, she has gone on to achieve great success and become arguably one of the biggest international stars of our time.

Made a movie

After leaving The X Factor as one of its finalists, British singer-songwriter Jessie J needed to pick her next career move wisely. She had just won the competition, but now that it was over, what would she do with her life?

In May 2015, Jessie made the decision to try acting out of curiosity. Her manager at the time convinced her to take some informal screen tests and ever since then, she’s been trying to break into Hollywood.

Her first role came in early 2016 when she landed a supporting part in an action thriller film called Never Let Go. Since then, she has branched out into other genres such as romantic comedies and dramas.

Became a billionaire

After breaking onto the music scene in 2010 with her hit song “Price Tag,” singer-songwriter and actress Jessie J quickly rose to fame as one of the biggest names in pop music.

Her debut album I Was Made For This went straight to number one on the Billboard charts where it stayed for two weeks and has now sold over 2 million copies worldwide!

Since then she has gone on to win several awards including Best International Female Artist at The BRIT Awards in 2017, winner of Breakthrough Act At The MTV Europe Music Award, and Album Of The Year At The Ivor Novello Awards.

She is also known for her philanthropic work supporting organizations such as St Giles Trust which helps young people overcome issues with substance abuse and self esteem, MIND who help individuals with anxiety disorders, and Teenage Cancer America, an organization that raises awareness and funding for cancer among teenagers and young adults.

Married Nick Young

After dating for just over a year, singer-songwriter and actress Jessie J announced her engagement to NBA player Nick Young in May 2018. The two got engaged while filming an IOS game show at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles!

The couple first met when Jessie was 17 years old and he was 22. She says that she always had a feeling something special would happen for them, so she kept trying to be his friend even though he already had lots of friends.

They both knew it was more than that, but they needed to work through their own internal struggles before pursuing a relationship. It took them almost a whole year before they made their way towards each other again, but once they did things moved very quickly.

Nick proposed during one of their romantic getaways away from the city. They stayed in a quaint cabin in Santa Fe where they made delicious meals together and enjoyed some good wine. When they returned home, there were flowers waiting for her with a note telling her how beautiful she is and asking if she’d marry him.

Became a mother

As we know, before she was famous as a singer, Jessie had to struggle with her image. Before she released her first song in 2011, people didn’t quite recognize her talent yet. They also thought that she was just another pretty young thing who made music for money.

But after her debut single “Price Tag” became a worldwide hit, everyone knew who Jessie was!

Her down-to-earth personality helped her climb the ladder of success quickly. People loved her sweet demeanor and how hard she works to succeed.

She is always posting pictures on social media showing off her daughter Dreamy. Many fans feel connected to both of them because they seem like two normal individuals who are successful enough to enjoy their lives but at the same time work very hard to keep it going.

As parents ourselves, we can relate to everything she says about being a parent and keeping yourself motivated when nothing seems to be working. Her experiences as a child performer make her advice especially valuable.

Had a baby

After moving to London, England in 2002 at the age of 19, singer/songwriter Jessica O’Connor met producer Robert Rivelle. They started dating soon after meeting and he became her live guitarist. In late 2006 they decided to have a child together.

O’Connor was 21 years old when she gave birth to a daughter she named Dreamy Jessie Reelis Gostevich. The pair immediately posted about their daughter on social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter.

Her followers loved the pictures and posts celebrating the new addition to the family and encouraging other parents to be more open with their children’s lives.

Many people also commented on how beautiful both mother and daughter were!

Jessie took time off from singing while she raised her little girl. But now that she is back in the music business, she has made several songs about being a parent including “Missing You” and “Take Me From Here To There.

Made a song with Ariana Grande

After collaborating for several songs, including “Break Free” in 2015 and “Too Good” earlier this year, Ariana asked Jessie to help her write something new. The two writers sat down together at Ari's house and came up with what would become "Focus."

The lyrics tell the story of someone who has lost their focus and is trying to figure out how to get it back. It seems trite at first, but when you listen to the music and to Ari's vocals, you'll see that she really means it.

After hearing both parts of the song, I think people will agree that it sounds very authentic.
