Much to the delight of devoted fans, Pop powerhouse Jessie J finally dropped her newest single, ‘Think About That.’
The lead release from her forthcoming EP ‘R.O.S.E.’ (an acronym for “Realisations, Obsessions, Sex and Empowerment”), the song is certainly meant to be a reflection of every member of the acronym. And, after one listen at the heat behind those lyrics, you’ll see she succeeded. A sect of which reads:
“All you disturb is my work and my patience
Years of grinding, you took it, you broke it
All cause you’re faking
You wanna be famous
Say it, you wanna be famous
Using my jewels
You were thirsty as f*ck
Always late, always faded”
Are we finally about to get in touch with the “real” Jessie J?
Jessie J, apparently coming through to snatch wigs, can go ahead and start with ours.
The realest we’ve probably ever seen or heard her, ‘Think About That’ is a gritty, “in your face” clap back to love gone wrong. Instrumentally, the song does lack a bit of -umph that would arguably help sail and sell the tune’s content a bit more, but the lyrics and their delivery (surprisingly demure for J) are so captivating it seems to make up for the slow build-up.
Probably not the best self-starter by its lonesome but if ‘Think’ ever landed on a scene of ‘Being Mary Jane,’ ‘Insecure,’ or some film or television show where its lyrics were placed in a timely manner, there is literally no telling how far it could go.
We applaud you Jessie and hope this is the true beginning of a love affair with Urban flairs.
Note: The clip came packaged with the announcement of an intimate world tour, which kicks off next month.
