Jessie J Strips It Right Back For Pretty ‘Sweet Talker’ Ballad “Personal”: Listen

Just when you thought Jessie J‘s Sweet Talker LP was going to be a party-startin’ collection of urban club-bangers like “Bang Bang” and 2 Chainz-assisted “Burnin’ Up”, the comeback queen delivers a pretty stripped-back ballad called “Personal”. Co-written by rising R&B diva Elle Varner, the mid-tempo gem is a return to the more mellow terrain of Who You Are and Alive.

After coasting through the verses accompanied only by simple guitar and finger snaps, the Brit can’t resist unleashing her powerful pipes in the chorus. “Ain’t got a shot glass in my fist to spill it away all my business, telling these strangers about you,” she sings. “I’m getting too personal, I’m getting too personal with you.” This is a much better fit for Jessie’s voice and personality than her previous singles. Listen after the jump.
