New Track: Think About That – Jessie J

JESSIE J shares her new song and music video ‘Think About That.’ The song heralds the upcoming release of her fourth full-length album, R.O.S.E. , arriving in 2018.

‘Think About That’ sees the multi-platinum UK-born BRIT Award-winning songstress unearth a rarely seen and heard side of herself. The stark and minimal production from DJ Camper [Nicki Minaj, Mary J. Blige and Mariah Carey] gives way to intensely personal lyrics and a raw, soulful performance. “I didn’t want to write any new songs.” JESSIE J explains, “Camper said “Ok” then before he left the room, he put the beat for ‘Think About That’ on a loop. The lyric and melody just starting falling out of me, and 15 minutes later when he returned I had a song. He laughed and said “see””

JESSIE J also announced ‘R.O.S.E’.—an acronym for “Realizations, Obsessions, Sex, and Empowerment”—via a video detailing her struggles and journey to this body of work without pulling any punches. ‘R.O.S.E’. represents a bold evolution for the artist as she shares personal stories over the course of the tracklisting.

In addition, JESSIE J has revealed her upcoming tour schedule of intimate rooms, beginning in the UK on October 8 at Birmingham Institute, followed by Manchester Albert Hall on October 9 and London’s KOKO on October 11 with further dates plotted across Europe and the US through October 28 at Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, CA.

Mind Kyle Letterman and distant light

KYLE LETTMAN and production duo DISTANT LIGHT have teamed up for a Summer fuelled, Garage hit, Mind, released last week.

Earlier this year, KYLE LETTMAN released his remake of Garage classic, Moving Too Fast. Daring to medal with a classic track, the results were fruitful and singer/songwriter received an incredible response across Radio and Online platforms seeing the record being supported across the BBC, Kiss and Capital networks….and it doesn’t stop there. 2015 has been quite the year for Kyle as he also opened the show at Omarion’s UK headline gig at KOKO helped by some serious online support from Pixie Lott!

Kyle isn’t the only one to have made some serious noise of late as production duo DISTANT LIGHT hit the music landscape last year with their official remix of UK RnB singer Angel’s chart-topping track Wonderful. The garage number quickly got the stamp of approval from leading tastemakers DJ EZ from Kiss 100 and BBC 1Xtra’s DJ Cameo. DISTANT LIGHT have worked their production magic on Ellie Goulding’s Beating Heart, Misha B’s Home Run and top 10 single All Cried Out by Blonde. Their recent effort Raggamuffin, was named Song of the Week here on NEW LEASE MUSIC.

It seems this is going to be one solid collaboration; so don’t miss out, have a listen to Mind.
