English pop-soul singer Jessie J is back on the music front with a new single. Titled “Real Deal,” the track is a follow-up to her 2015 single “Flashlight,” which was featured in the film Pitch Perfect 2.
The 29-year-old performer took a short break from the music side of life while she manned her position on the Australian take of The Voice as an official judge.
Although J is revving up her creative engine again, she told Forbes in a recent interview that “Real Deal” would likely not be featured on an upcoming record.
“I’m still writing and I’m still creating,” she relayed. “There’s so much that’s to come. But when it happens, I think people are gonna be happy that I didn’t tell them about it too prematurely. It will be, it will be, it will be… I don’t know. The thing is, I don’t know. But I know it’s there, and I know I’ve said that recently.”
“I’m so involved in it personally, in that I’ve written it all myself. I’ve had one producer. It’s almost been like a time of therapy, but with a melody to it.
“It feels like it really is reminiscent of my first album. I just have to know that it’s the right thing that I’m doing, and I have to trust my instincts and act on them. Some days I get frustrated, ’cause I feel for [my fans]. I know it’s been so long and they are so supportive, but I know that when it happens, they’ll forget that it was so long that they didn’t have music.”
