Who You Are
British-born Jessie J has been writing songs since she was 17. And now at 22, she has already written tracks for artists such as Justin Timberlake, Alicia Keys, Christina Aguilera. She co-wrote the song "Party In The USA," which was performed by Miley Cyrus. She kind of reminds us of Natasha Bedingfield. So if you like her, you should give Jessie J a listen. :)
