During the British invasion in the 50s and 60s, peoples ears were dominated by four handsome young men, but in the new millennium, we have four new girls climbing the charts all the way from across the pond. From Jessie J, to Leona Lewis, to Adele, these talented artist give listeners three reasons to love the UK.
Born in London, England Jessie Js sharp lyrics are as sharp as her raven black hair cut. Before Jessie J broke out as an artist, she wrote songs for other artist, even writing Miley Cyruss popular hit Party in the USA. Her songs like Whos Laughing Now and Do it Like a Dude give empowerment to women and bullied victims.
Her first single, Do it Like a Dude, gives women a reason to get up and not only do it like a dude, but better. With her chorus, Do it like a brother, do it like a dude, grab my crotch, wear my hat, low like you, portrays her sassy and almost diva-like attitude. From her lyrics to her quirky music videos, Jessie J is an English artist worth checking out.
When Leona Lewis made her mark in the U.S., she was already being checked out by millions of viewers on the finale of UKs The X Factor. After her win on the UKs version of America Idol, she received two Grammy awards and a spot on Billboard Magazines 2008 Top New Artist list. Having Simon Cowell as her manager, Leona Lewis produced an international hit, Bleeding Love.
Since then, Lewis can be seen not only working in studios, but in fashion magazines for her bold outfit choices. From her catchy choruses and daring style, Lewis has made her mark here in America.
Lewis may have won the top spot on The X Factor, but Adeles sultry voice has given her the number one spot on Billboards Top Artist of 2011. She sings of every aspect of a relationship. Her songs aren`t your typical break up songs, like her popular hit Someone Like You. This hit is enriched with emotion, sparked with passion and drenched with soul. In a interview earlier this year with Vevo, Adele said, Its about sort of [how] I met the love of my life...and it was me sort of imaging being single forever and going to look for him, and he is married and with kids.
From the beginning, 2011 had Adele written all over it. In January, Adele released her album 21, which has won the number one spot on Billboards Best Album of 2011 list, and her popular hit Rolling in the Deep is considered the best song of 2011, according to Billboard.
With chart-topping songs and empowering lyrics, this new girl-powered British invasion is welcomed here, 3,000 miles away from its home.
