Jessie J wants Beyonce, Rihanna duets
Pop superstar would love to work with stars like Ed Sheeran, Will.i.am, and Tom Jones on new album
Bisexual pop superstar Jessie J would love to duet with Beyonce and Rihanna for her new album.
The ‘Domino’ singer has revealed she wants to collaborate with the global pop icons on her second album, in an effort to make sure the record is special.
Speaking to British tabloid Daily Star, she said: ‘It took me seven years to get people interested in the first album, so the pressure weighs heavy on my shoulders with the anticipation of the second.’
She said she wanted to work with BRIT Academy co-graduate Ed Sheeran and rapper Tinie Tempah, but would also ‘love to work with Rihanna and Beyonce.’
However, Jessie J said: ‘It has to happen organically, depending on who’s around.’
This does not mean she has not thought about her fellow coaches on The Voice UK; living legend Tom Jones, The Script’s Danny O’Donaghue, and the Black Eyed Peas’ Will.i.am.
Jessie J recently collaborated with Jones on a duet, a special cover of the classic ‘Mockingbird’.
She said: ‘They are like my big bros and me and Tom Jones will definitely do another duet.
‘I’ve also talked about it with Danny O’Donoghue and will.i.am, but we’re all in different countries. If we get the time, it will happen.’
As of April 2012, sales of Jessie J’s debut album Who You Are have reached 2,500,000 worldwide.
