The Voice: Jessie J Makes Chart History With ‘Laser Light’.

Published: Monday 23rd Apr 2012 by David

For one reason or another, Jessie J doesn’t get the acclaim we feel she deserves.

Ticking a plethora of boxes on a commercial and talent tip, J remains the UK’s most promising act, second only to her former school mate Adele.

So, in what only adds weight to the above point, ‘The voice’ has broken a UK chart record with her latest single ‘Laserlight’.

Details below…

By breaking into the UK Top Ten this week (#5), ‘Laserlight’ makes Jessie the first UK Female Act to score 6 Top Ten hits from a single album.

Lifted from the ‘Platinum Edition’ of her debut album ‘Who You Are‘,the cut follows the success of the star’s earlier singles which have moved a whopping 11 million units in two years.

This, in aid of the LP which has sold 2.5 million copies worldwide, spawning the the #1 singles ‘Price Tag’ and ‘Domino‘.

UK readers can catch Jessie on BBC’s ‘The Voice’ every Saturday  at 7.30 pm, or on That Grape Juice.TV one hour later.

    I remember liking her when I first discovered her with “Do it like a dude”. But she needed the commercial push and she had to make the generic songs that dominate nowadays singles charts. I´ve lost interest
    I blame the basic b****** who support crap. When is this era finally going to end? I thought once Adele broke the silliness it was ending but it seems Adele is just the exception and will keep being it. People please wake UP

    @JOHN VIDAL

    I AGREE. THE SAME GOES FOR ROCK, COUNTRY, FOLK, BLUES, HEAVY-METAL MUSIC, SOUL, “REAL R&B” ETC…….

    THERE WAS A TIME WHEN ALL THOSE, SOMEWHAT FORGOTTEN, GENRE’S RULED THE TOP OF THE CHARTS, (EVEN “GOOD POP-MUSIC” I.E: MICHAEL JACKSON) ESPECIALLY DURING THE “TRUE” MAINSTREAM ERA’S THAT WERE THE 70’S TO LATE-1980’S.

    BUT NOW – BECAUSE THE MAJORITY (AND THE MAJORITY IS THE SADDENED YOUTH OF THIS GENERATION) WANT DANCE/ELECTRONIC MUSIC, ARTIST WITH “ACTUAL TALENT” HAVE NOTHING BUT TO CONFORM. IT’S APPAULING REALLY – AS FOR ADELE, SHE IS JUST A ONE-OFF.

    WHAT THE MUSIC WORLD NEEDS IS AN ARTIST/MUSICIAN TO COME ALONG, WHO IS SO ORIGINAL, HE/SHE WILL JUST KNOCK EVERYONE OUT THE PARK AND HOPEFULLY OPEN THE DOORS FOR REAL MUSIC AGAIN.

    ANYWAY – CONGRATS JESSIE. YOUR DOING US IN THE U.K PROUD!!!

    I never like her but good for her.

    Is that it!? Sheesh, they say you break records for everything theses days. The album was a re-release so does it really count? Its not like Adele’s album thats still selling with no deluxe or re-packaged edition

  9. Mike April 23, 2012

    I think Abracadabra should be her next single. Poppy for the Uk, and a good American summer jam.
