Like many before her, Jessie J fell victim to the sophomore slump. After sweeping everything in her path with blockbuster debut LP Who You Are, the outspoken Brit failed to make a similar impact with Alive. Her aggressive new sound and bold image overhaul were too much for most fans and she seemed destined for the pop scrapheap. That is until she rebounded with “Bang Bang”.
The 26-year-old engineered one of 2014′s most unlikely comebacks by reaching out to Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande. “Bang Bang” (appropriately) spearheads Jessie J’s third LP Sweet Talker, which drops October 13. She unveiled the cover on Instagram today (August 21) and it boasts a striking snap of the diva wearing very little clothing. Welcome back!
