SINGLE REVIEW: Jessie J – I Want Love

Ten years ago we were introduced to Jessie J with the flawlessly ambitious debut album ‘Who You Are’ which delivered the three Top 10 Aria Charts singles ‘Price Tag’, ‘Nobody’s Perfect’ and ‘Domino’. Since then she’s experimented with her sound, topped the charts, judged on The Voice Australia and UK, been a contestant on the Chinese reality TV show ‘SINGER’, released a christmas album, and toured globally. 

Following the release of her RNB inspired album ‘R.O.S.E’ she’s returned to pop music in a bold and glittery way ahead of her forthcoming fifth studio album. ‘I Want Love’ is a homage to disco and soaring house vocal pop songs. Co-written and produced by Ryan Tedder, the track dominantly reminds everyone of her powerhouse vocals that consistently topped the charts in the first half of the 2010’s. 

With a guitar riff reminiscent of ‘Barracuda’ driving the verses, the pulsating energy of the song glides into this big euphoric release of emotion and pure celebration of love. Sonically found somewhere between ABBA and Mark Ronson, the anthemic hook has this gospel feel that transports you to a full-on disco church. 

With the theme of the song solidified by love, she sings; “I wanted you yesterday. No, nothing’s changed. You’ve always been the one. And I want love. Baby, tonight, I want it”. It’s that undeniable connection that has you deeply rooted in love with someone, and it’s beautiful. 

‘I Want Love’ is a bold and empowering return for Jessie J to the pop arena, and one that promises a whole lot of glittery fun ahead.
