Jessie J has unveiled the cover art for her upcoming third album ‘Sweet Talker’.
The singer posted the artwork via her Instagram page and revealed the record will be released on October 13. The album’s first single ‘Bang Bang’ – a collaboration with Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj – was released online on July 29.
Accompanying the artwork, the singer wrote, “‘SWEET TALKER’ the official title of my 3rd album! This is the official album cover! So happy to share it with you all!”
In April, Jessie J released a 1,100 word statement responding to criticism of comments she made in an interview when she referred to her bisexuality as a “phase” and that she now only dates men. The Londoner was accused of either lying or using her sexuality as a selling point.
“I never lied about my sexuality, I never labelled myself, the media and some of the public did,” wrote Jessie J. “I said almost 5 years ago now. I have dated girls and boys. Quote me! Which I had! Am I denying that…? No! I was young and I experimented! Who hasn’t?
“I fell for a person who happened to be a girl. Every other relationship I’ve had has been with a man. My record label didn’t care and it wasn’t part of my launch! I’m not looking for sympathy, I’m just being real.”
