Who You Are - Jessie J
Advantages: lots of great tracks
Disadvantages: none for me
Who You Are was Jessie J's first album and was released in 2011, this album has had lots of great tracks on it and is definitely worth a listen.
I would say this album is mostly pop, though some of the songs have rock and hip hop vibes to them as well. I really like this album as it has a lot of attitude in it and was written by Jessie J, you can really get a feel of what kind of a person Jessie J is from listening to this album.
The track listing for Who You Are is as follows:
1. Price Tag-Feat. B.o.B.
2. Nobody's Perfect
4. Big White Room
5. Casualty Of Love
7. Who's Laughing Now
8. Do It Like A Dude
9. Mamma Knows Best
11. Stand Up
12. I Need This
13. Who You Are
This song is really funky and have a real cool RnB vibe to it, it is about how money does not mean anything to Jessie J and how she would rather spend her own than take money from a man. This song is really cool and confident, like many of the songs on this album and it gives a good message to women to be more independent and not depend on men to get things that they want.
Who's Laughing Now
This is a fun and upbeat song that has a really confident vibe to it. It is about how Jessie got bullied in school and never fitted in, now that she is all grown up, she has made her way in life and is happy. I really like this song because I can kind of relate to how horrible the girls in school were, I made most of my friends outside school and am much happier because of it. I think this song gives a good message to anyone being bullied as it shows that there is a light at the end of the tunnel and usually the people who have been mean and nasty to you end up unhappy in the end.
Do it Like a Dude
This is another really cool song about how Jessie J can keep up with and hang with the boys as easily as she can with the girls. It is a fun and sexy song about how men and women should have equal standards in society. I think this song is really catchy and fun and is definitely worth a listen to.
The Rest of the Album
I really like all the songs on this album and can't say that I find the urge to skip over any of the tracks. There is a good mixture of slow and emotional songs and faster more upbeat fun songs on this album. I really like Jessie J's voice and she writes her songs as well as singing them. I like that most of the songs on this album have their own message of being strong and independant and being your own person, this seems to be the theme throughout the album. I am really glad that I bought this album and have got quite a bit of listening out of it, I love listening to this album when I am getting ready for a night out with the girls.
Price and Availabily
You can buy Jessie J's Who You Are in HMV for around £7, which is a fantastic price in my opinion for such a good album. I have got lots of listening out of my copy and really enjoy all of this album.
I think that this is a fantastic album and listen to it all the time. There are loads of great tracks and a good variety of different types of songs on this album. Overall I would give this album 5 out of 5 stars.
