Jessie J Recruits Boyz II Men And Babyface For Upcoming Christmas Album
"The talent they all have blows my mind."
Jessie J has something big planned for this holiday season. The UK pop singer is reportedly releasing an Xmas album, entitled This Christmas Day, and she's recruiting R&B/Soul legends Boyz II Men and Babyface to appear on the project.
The album will include 11 tracks, featuring the traditional holiday sing-alongs like "Silent Night," "Santa Clause Is Comin' To Town," and 'Jingle Bell Rock." Boyz II Men will appear on the rendition of "Winter Wonderland," while Babyface will lend his expertise to their cover of "This Christmas Song." Legendary songwriter and composer, David Foster will serve as the producer of the forthcoming project.
"I had so much fun recording this holiday album!" Jessie J said in a statement on Thursday (Sept. 27). "I did it in fourteen days around my summer tour, flying back and forth to LA from Europe. The chance to work with David Foster, Babyface, Rodney Jerkins, Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis, and Boyz II Men was a dream come true. The talent they all have blows my mind."
In addition to the holiday project, the "Bang Bang" singer is gearing up to hit the road on a North America tour this fall. The tour will be in support of her recently released album, R.O.S.E. The trek will kick off in San Francisco on Oct. 1, moving through major cities like New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, and Washington DC before concluding on Nov. 1, in Los Angeles.
