    I cannot take Jessie J seriously she will always be a singer who takes on black styles and is not better than the original.Misha B showed her how to do her own songs a career built on hype.

    I think jj does that f****** deliberately, just to prove how much better she can do it. Tackle something else jj, something that will challenge your ass

    I wish she would stop with the voice theatrics, b**** we know you can sing! Ugh! Anyway I love this version of WFL almost as much as the original. it really is a beautiful song when you strip away all the club beats ands synths. Not here for Domino (Katy Perry rip-off).

    YES!!!!

    Everytime I hear this song on the radio I can’t help but think how amazing it would sound coming from someone with a powerful voice like Jessie J!

    My prayers have been answered.

    Yes you do, people like you just aren’t checking for them nor do they get the shine that Rhi gets.

    Theres no doubt that she can sing…. buts theres also no doubt that shes annoying, oversings everything (and not in that good good gospel way) and that here runs and ad libs are repetitive.
    Its funny that after all the hype its the generic songs like price tag & Domino is thats whats made her famous

    I agree she can sing. However, for artists who have an incredible voice, restraint is the hardest, yet most powerful tool. (See: “We Belong Together”)

    Thank you @Edward. They can’t just say “oh that was a good cover”, they feel that by putting down Jessie their loyalty and bond to the Rihanna is some how made even stronger (sad).
    Both women are good artists (in their own right) and Jessie killed this cover… End Of.

    Her ‘WFL’ was brilliant..for the first 2 minutes! She oversang A LOT after that, like she always does, but the first 2 minutes were great. And I’m not here for ‘Domino’ (or for her next equally generic single for that matter)

    LOL ok we all know Jessie can sing and yes she covered it ok, but she couldn’t do it justice. She didn’t have the swag for it and bitches pls, she was over singing and trying too many things with her voice. Honestly it sounded like a vocal warm up rather than a performance. I’d love to see her doing a stripped down song, no vocal theatrics pls

    f*** Jessie J. Oversinging stranger ass b**** from the BeYAWNce school of SWAGGERJACKING. Get your own f****** songs and your own sound. She tried to come all urban chick and when that flopped suddenly she’s a Katy Perry clone with “Domino” and when people finally realized that WASN’T Katy Perry, the song flopped out of the Top 10. Jessie J needs to fly back to the UK and have all the seats on that damn jet.

    Yaaasss Jessie! Her voice is really good, yes she does overdo the stylings but most people CAN’T do what she’s doing. She should use it a bit more sparingly.

    I just want her to do better songs.

    She is the white Yoland Adams but the girl can sing and as usual put Rihanna to shame, that’s how you know you have talent when you can work a song, dont just sing a long with it, make it yours! Blue Ivy crying sounds better than Rihanna. Rihanna is a fake! AUTOTUNE

    When artists sing for Live Lounge they usually do one of their own songs plus a cover version of a recent hit, Rihanna fans should feel flattered that she chose that song out of all the others rather than getting annoyed about a version that sounds nothing like the original. Personally I don’t like all that trilling she does, it gets old fast. Her live version of Domino was much better ;o)

    For the fool that made the comment about black girls not going outside R&B, its because every time a black girl sings they call it R&B, there are plenty of black women singing other genres, blame your the limited mind of your people for not categorizing them by genre, because black people know how to!

    grapejuice is so ant- rihanna every other comment on this “KISS CHRIS BROWN ASS SITE” is dedicated to destroying our generations next best female artist Queen Rihanna keep hating grapejuice and jesse Rihanna is queen of the charts and nobody give a care about either of you. And by the way Chris brown career is two minutes away from a bobby brown future, Rihanna is the real talent and will forever be our 21st Century Whitney.

    I can’t stand Jessie J ever since she was reported to be angry at Misha B ( UK XFactor contestant) for singing her song on the show. The girl sang Jessie’s song way better than Jessie which is why Jessie got angry. She over-sings anyway, plus I just don’t get her at all with that stupid make-up.
