Jessie J is back with her new song “Silver Lining (Crazy Bout You).”
There’s nothing like singing along to an inspirational pop tune (we use the word “sing” loosely, BTW) when we’re having a bad day. Lucky for us, Brit-pop performer Jessie J is back with an empowering new song, “Silver Lining (Crazy Bout You),” slated to appear on the “Silver Lining Playbook” movie soundtrack AND has been officially added to our own “Step Aside, Haters” playlist.
Listen to Jessie J’s “Silver Lining (Crazy Bout You)” after the jump.
Not only does Jessie J’s new track remind us to look on the bright side of every scenario, it also reminds us of how much we missed her powerhouse voice. REMINDER: GIRL CAN BELT LIKE A CHAMP! Penned by Diane Warren (who also wrote Beyoncé’s “I Was Here“), Jessie’s vocals float effortlessly over a simple, yet powerful stomping beat. True, “Silver Lining” does divert from Jessie’s trademark hip-hop/pop “Price Tag” vibe, but her confident and optimistic lyrics offer up some flawless advice for how to stay strong when ish gets tough: “Don’t care what they say/ Don’t care what this world thinks/ We got each other/ That’s all we need.” Call us crazy, but this song just makes us want to hold everyone’s hands in a circle and sway back and forth LIKE THIS. Who’s in?!
