AceShowbiz - In anticipation of the release of her new EP "R.O.S.E.", Jessie J has unleashed the lead single off the effort. Titled "Think About That", the new song arrives along with its accompanying music video. The stunning visuals begins with the English songstress gazing deeply into the camera before writhing around in pain while her hands are bound by rope.
After showing off her vulnerable side, Jessie opts for a fiercer look in dominatrix-style outfit, complete with a mask, fishnets and killer heels. By the end of the clip, the "Bang Bang" hitmaker breaks free from the rope with flower petals pouring down from above.
Jessie slams someone who wrongs her through the song's scathing lyrics. "All you disturb is my work and my patience/ years of grinding, you took it, you broke it," she sings."All cause you're faking/ You wanna be famous/ Say it, you wanna be famous/ Using my jewels/ You were thirsty as f**k/ Always late, always faded."
"Think About That" follows up "Real Deal", which was released last month. Both tracks will be featured on "R.O.S.E.", Jessie's first project since 2014's "Sweet Talker". In the promotional video of the upcoming EP, the singer revealed that the album title was named after her mother. Additionally, R.O.S.E. stands for Realisations, Obsessions, Sex and Empowerment.
"My mother is called Rose, she gave me the gift of life," she said. "A rose is at its most beautiful when budding. I rose above the pain. We give roses or a single rose as a gift with so many different feelings. This is my gift to you." She added, "For each letter there is a word, and for each word there is a song I will share with you. I'm strong enough now to let you in, to be real and to be free."
As for why she went on a long hiatus since her last record, Jessie shared, "I don't want to make music anymore. I said that out loud. Wow. Then, I tried to stop and I didn't know how to because it's impossible to walk away from true love. Art, emotion, lyrics, music, feeling, it's what I need to survive. Man, that pain woke me up. It's inside out, you know? I don't do this because I want to do it. I do it because I have to, I feel everything so deeply."
