“I Want Love” is out via LAVA/Republic

British chart-topper Jessie J is back with a dramatic new single, “I Want Love,” and the first sign her fifth album could spark another career-defining moment.

Connecting with hitmaker Ryan Tedder as co-writer and producer, the thundering nu-disco release sees the Grammy-nominated artist unleashing her powerhouse range, outrageous vocal runs, and choir-backed harmonies over an infectious bassline and menacing orchestration. Meanwhile, delivering a timeless track about reconnecting with an old flame you can’t or don’t want to shake. Perfect for hitting the dancefloor or singing your lungs out in the shower.

“I Want Love” is the first preview of Jessie J’s forthcoming album co-written and executive produced by Tedder, and it’s the strongest case she’s made for a radio single in years. I hope the pair realize the hit they’ve made and discover new ways to lean into this sound. The song is inexhaustible, and Jessie J’s vocals are at the best of her career. A massive feat for one of the most versatile and powerful voices in music.

Discussing her new single, Jessie J says, “I wanted to come back with a song that felt classic but modern. BIG vocals and get everyone on the dance floor. I cannot wait for the world to hear this song and to DANCE and sing along loud.”

As she celebrates the tenth anniversary of her platinum-certified 2011 first LP, Who You Are, she’s seemingly ready to get the world dancing again while unveiling some of her most accessible and radio-friendly music since the earth-shattering “Bang Bang.” Stream Jessie J’s new single.
