When we first heard a preview of the chorus for Jessie J’s new collaboration with Dr. Luke, “Domino”, both the production and the Brit singer’s vocals reminded us of one particular California gurl. The full-length track surfaced online today, and yep, still sounds like a Teenage Dream leftover. Listen to “Domino” below.
Jessie J – “Domino”
The song begins with a bouncy guitar riff, then the “Who’s Laughing Now” singer bursts in, declaring “I’m feeling sexy and free”, before requesting that you “Take me down like I’m a domino” on the chorus. Jessie sounds gorgeous on this track, but we still can’t not hear Katy Perry on this song. That could either help her chances scoring some new fans in the US, or it could welcome some unfavorable comparisons.
It’s unclear at this point if the song is intended for Jessie’s sophomore album, though we do have word that the song is set to drop as a single on August 30.
