Jessie J won't compromise her sound
BRIT award-winning songstress Jessie J reveals that despite working with the 'Midas-touch' producer Dr. Luke, she went out of her way to ensure she didn't sound like his other chart-topping acts.
Dr. Luke has previously worked with Ke$ha, Katy Perry and Britney Spears, all of whom have been incredibly successful, but the 'Price Tag' singer wanted to avoid that generic pop sound and told New Zealand's 3 News it was her decision to deviate from it:
"I remember first going in with Dr Luke and it's big pressure when you know you're going in with someone that's written huge hits for other female artists and you don't want to sound like them,"
"And I went in with him and (songwriter) Claude (Kelly) and said, 'This is who I am. This is what I do.' And I remember being told like, you know, Luke is kind of very intense, just take it slow and I kind of went in and was like, 'What up! Like, hello!' And I think he appreciated my kind of honesty and I said, 'Look, I don't want to sound like this, this, this and this.'"
Jessie J also admits that her honesty created a great vibe in the studio and left her with results to be proud of:
"There's a song on my album called 'Abracadabra' which totally is very different to what kind of, I wouldn't say what Luke does, but you know that big, pop Katy Perry, Britney (Spears), I forgotten her name ... Ke$ha - that kind of sound."
