New Video: Jessie J – ‘Who You Are’

Published: Friday 30th Sep 2011 by David

Check out the latest visual to be delivered by Pop vocalist Jessie J in support of her release, ‘Who You Are‘.

The follow up to ‘Price Tag‘ and ‘Nobody’s Perfect‘, the video sees the Brit School alum in a hotel room singing the lyrics to the song she wrote during her time as a writer in Los Angeles, ‘being pulled from studio to studio’.

Watch ‘Who You Are’ below…

While the ‘basic’ nature of the clip will appease some sects of Jessie’s fans, we can’t help but to find it- well- a bit lacking.

By no means are we suggesting the single was in need of a GaGa-esque 9 minute long mega clip; but for a song with so much strength and personality, a video set completely in one room just isn’t cutting it. Particularly, when the clips for ‘Dude‘, ‘Price Tag‘ and ‘Nobody’s Perfect‘ gave many a music enthusiast the ‘visual life‘ that many a video churning Pop tart has tried but failed to convey.

Still, an amazing song, which will further justify J’s hype. Even if it’s video doesn’t.

    LOL I watched it yesterday afternoon 😆 😆

    Anyway, I’m glad that she kept it simple and I think she captured the essence of the song parlty, but it’s obvious she could have done much more with it.She didn’t even have to walk around (I know that her knee is not okay).She could just pull a ‘Beautiful’ and make a montage of different people.This trailer/unofficial video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xrho5CzEfjs&feature=mfu_in_order&list=UL) was miles more powerful than the official video…

    That review was for ‘Someone Like You’, though and those songs are different.’Who You Are’ is more of a “big ballad” kind of song and besides, the direction and the editing in ‘Someone Like You’ were very well executed, so Adele was just bored and walking down the street but it looked artsy.I personally would like ‘Who You Are’ to be a black and white video like SLY and I can understand why the blog praised Adele and not Jessie tbh…

    The song isn’t about the video. I’m sure she did it this way so that you focus more on the MESSAGE of the song rather than what’s going on in the video.

    I mean look at Adele’s videos. Rolling in the Deep, Chasing Pavements, Make You Feel My Love & Someone Like You. They basically just focus on her, her and the song because, in my opinion, it makes it much more powerful that way.

    Not every video has to be like Price Tag or Run the World or Poker Face. Some need to be like Best Thing I Never Had or Someone Like You because those videos really display the power of a damn good song.

    I would say that they have chosen this style because Jessie J’s popularity really took off when she started posting videos on youtube of her singing new songs in various rented rooms while she worked on tracks in the U.S. This is a nod to that beginning I would think and personally I think it is quite typical of Jessie J to want to acknowledge the early fans that supported her 🙂
    On top of that – AWESOME song!
