“I was lucky enough to work with Tricky and The-Dream, Diplo, 2 Chainz, Max Martin, Ammo,” Jessie tells Idolator. In fact, Max “Midas Touch” Martin, who co-produced “Bang Bang,” co-wrote the infectious upcoming track from J’s new album called “Burning Up,” which features a crazy rap from 2 Chainz that the singer couldn’t help spitting out for us during the above interview. (No, really — Jessie J imitating 2 Chainz…you gotta watch it.)the ['Bang Bang] video, which we shot in L.A.” she tells us. “So I’m hoping, fingers crossed, we can just, like, chill and have a hot chocolate or something normal soon.”
As for her long absence from the States after her debut album arrived, Jessie cites a foot injury she sustained three years ago. “It’s the main reason why I couldn’t come back here, because I couldn’t fly,” she explains. “I had to have a bone transplant, so the bones had to hang out and make friends and cuddle… I need to have more surgery but I’ll probably have it at the end of the year.”
