Above is a snippet of Jessie J's latest song for the Pitch Perfect 2 Soundtrack called "Flashlight", soon to be released onto digital retailers. I'm expecting everyone to hate it. drama.gif

Actually sounds quite restrained for her. Maybe even I'll be able to get behind it ohmy.gif

Smash it Jessie <3 Sounds a bit cliched and predictable, but it's very nice.

it's another bloody terrible single. soupy as f*** ripping on 'halo' and just so unimportant and insecure. she looks like an off-colour jenny frost in the video.

the perfect film title for her to be providing a soundtrack single :')

It's pleasant enough and could be much worse as there's a distinct lack of oversinging in parts for a Jessie J song but it's still incredibly generic and nondescript. Watching the video made me wonder if she enjoys and believes in what she does now and actually had me feeling a bit sorry for her unsure.gif! It seems that she/her team are just taking absolutely any opportunity that comes her way to maintain her profile (the Tuc crackers promotional stuff being a prime example) without any concern for quality control or an ounce of artistry to be seen. Her career trajectory kind of fascinates me. laugh.gif

What a boring basic song. It won't do anything to help her unless Pitch Perfect 2 is huge.

Not really connected to the song but carrying in from what Noah was saying, her career has gone in a strange direction with this third era.

EVERYTHING was put into making 'Bang Bang' a huge success but then there seemed to be no clear idea of what would happen next. It's not even as though you can blame 'Bang Bang' from overshadowing everything else as 'Burnin Up' was announced as the second single and premiered IIRC before 'Bang Bang' was released in the UK. It appears they tried to focus on the US market, and the UK was an afterthought, which is strange seeing as though 'Alive' wasn't even released over there. I mean I'm guessing 'Sweet Talker' was meant to be the next proper single going by Radio 1 but then there was no video and she sang 'Masterpiece' on Graham Norton instead?

It will be interesting to see what happens with her fourth era but I can just see the same happening, a big push for the lead single and not really attempting to push anything else.

Completely agree. The way the Sweet Talker era was handled post-Bang Bang was awful. Such a shame when it was her best album, material wise.

What a gorgeous soundtrack song. wub.gif Her voice sounds amazing! I love it when she reigns it in and doesn't "belt" for no particular reason. 'Pitch Perfect 2' will be huge I reckon, but whether it'll help this song be more than a middling top 30 hit at best, I don't know (I get the feeling something else from the film will completely take off and over shadow it!) but as a song, although I agree that it's quite non-descript and doesn't really bring anything new to the table, I'm still really liking it!

I hope they get things sorted for her 4th era! 'Sweet Talker' definitely was a huge mess despite having enough potential singles from the album.

It's the most listenable thing she's done in ages-so much so I don't even hate it. Although it highlights just how average her voice actually is.

C'mon, sometimes I can't even take the Jessie comments seriously on here. You can criticise Jessie for a lot of things (lack of artistry, annoying personality blah blah blah) but having an average voice just isn't one. No matter what you think of her, the girl can sing and the vocals here are restrained for her as has been previously discussed. If she gave more to the vocals than this then she would be criticised for over-singing and yet when she reigns it back in she gets these kind of comments. She can't win laugh.gif

She can sing but there isn't anything about her that stands out when she isn't shrieking like a banshee. Yes, she's capable but so are loads of other musicians out there. Despite what she tells everyone, her voice just isn't that amazing.

It's just a generic song with a really boring overdone 'empowerment' message.
