The 26-year-old British singer Jessie J was diagnosed with a hereditary heart defect when she was a child. Her health problems haven’t gone away. She told the British magazine Cosmopolitan: “I still go to hospital. There are times when I have palpitations and I have to get on with it. I’m not on medication anymore but I have to balance my lifestyle and my diet, and not push myself.” But that doesn’t mean Jessie J isn’t busy.
After the amazing commercial success of the single Bang Bang this summer with Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj, Jessie J’s third studio album Sweet Talker will be released October 13, 2014. (The album includes Bang Bang: Jessie, Ariana and Nicki are all with the label Republic Records.) About Sweet Talker, MTV’s Joanne Dorken said that Jessie is “back with a bang!” (Jessie J’s second album Alive never made it to the States.) Jessie J should be back with a bang – she’s been working hard and with 52 songwriters to produce the 12 songs on Sweet Talker!
