Jessie J cancels US tour appearances

Story Highlight

Jessie says she is prioritising work on her new album, so she can release something Stateside this year.

Jessie J has cancelled her US tour appearances with Robin Thicke to work on her new album.

The Thunder singer told fans that she was pulling out of supporting the Blurred Lines star on his USA tour to “prioritise recording/studio and promo to finish the album for my US fans.”

In a post on Twitter, she said:

“Out of respect to my USA fans I want to be honest. I will not be supporting Robin Thicke on his USA tour. My team and I have decided it’s best I prioritise recording/studio and promo to finish the album for my US fans and having the opp for a single to be released for you sooner than later. Timing isn’t always perfect but I want to make it work! And hopefully have my own shows in the USA someday! I hope you understand. I’m sorry to all the fans who were coming. I will make it up by making sure you have more of me and my music this year”

Although Jessie’s latest album Alive was released in the UK last year, the US label weren’t very happy with it, so the singer announced today that she was heading over there to hit the studio and write new material.

“I am making it my goal that my album is released in the USA this year!” she said.

Jessie J is up for the best female solo artist at this year’s BRIT Awards, alongside Birdy, Ellie Goulding, Laura Marling and Laura Mvula.
