With the release date of her second studio album looming, Jessie J seems to be putting in some serious work; as she has just scored major collaborations withe the queen of Hip-Hop and soul, Mary J Blige and legendary soul singer Smokey Robinson!
The Wild pop star posted a picture of herself posing with popular music producer Randy Jackson and David Foster and thanked them for hooking her up with the two iconic vocalists.
Jessie then went on he Twitter to express her excitement with her Heartbeats, describing working with Mary and Smokey as a dream come true.
What a day and what an honour! I recorded two duets today… One with Mary J Blige and one with Smokey… http://t.co/2KguHXf7F5

It has yet to be confirmed as to whether or not the collaborations will end up on Jessie’s second album, due for release this September, or if they will be included on Mary’s upcoming Christmas album due out this December, but either way it’s a pretty major deal.
I also think it may be what Jessie needs to ignite some hype for her album, because her latest singles have been quite underwhelming for someone of her calibre, and due to the mediocre charting performance of the lead single Wild, it seems like the public think so too.
