None other than Jessie J popped by Grammys HQ (presumably The National Academy Of Recording Arts & Sciences in Santa Monica, California) on Wednesday for a post-VMA “afternoon acoustic set.” Apparently that’s just a thing she does. Are you heading back east anytime soon, J? I’m sure our HQ could use some QT with you.
While there, the “Bang Bang” singer performed the as-yet-unheard song “Burnin’ Up” off her forthcoming third studio album, Sweet Talker. The track, which will feature 2 Chainz on the LP, is all about losing control as things heat up between
lovers lovahs: “Hot in the kitchen like a thousand degrees/ That’s how I’m feeling when you’re next to me/ I got a fever, tell me what did you do?/ Temperature rising when I look at you, look at you.”
Anyone getting some En Vogue “Free Your Mind” vibes from this? So down.
Before Jessie opened the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards with a bang (bang), we caught up with her to ask her anything and everything we could about her new album. Along with 2 Chainz guesting on “Burnin’ Up,” the album will feature collaborations with Nicki Minaj, Ariana Grande, Tinie Tempah, and De La Soul.
Sweet Talker will be released in the U.S. on October 14. Ready your fire-safety preparedness accordingly.
