The Voice UK‘s resident female judge Jessie J has premiered her first ever worldwide single – the first single from her upcoming second album – ‘Wild‘.
‘Wild‘ is a brilliant collaboration of EDM and pure pop as Jessie teases the electro sound without having the noise of the typical faux-dub breakdown, yet maintains her “street cred” as she ropes in both Big Sean and Dizzee Rascal – catering to both her UK and US audiences. The anthemic chorus is similar to Sia‘s recent musical outings, but the unique tone and power of Jessie’s voice allows her to carry it off as her own.
This was in no way what we were expecting, but it is also the best thing to come from Jessie J yet – and it seems that most agree. Within just 16 hours of the track’s release, ‘Wild‘ charted at #3 on the UK Top 40 – with the singer tweeting “I am on top of the world”.

The official music video for ‘Wild‘ is expected to premiere tomorrow (May 29) and featured rappers Big Sean and Dizzee will both make appearances, judging by this snap that made its way onto the net a few days ago.
‘Wild‘ is available to download on iTunes now – and in other related Jessie J news, the BBC have confirmed that The Voice UK will return for a third season.
