Ever hear of Jessy Wilson? Chances are, you’ve either heard her sing or heard her words. A former background singer for Alicia Keys, that’s not all her resume holds. She’s also a Grammy-nominated songwriter who’s worked with Kanye West, Fantasia, and John Legend.
The Brooklyn-raised talent is gearing up for her upcoming EP with the lead single “Heartbreaker,” a nod to the soul of the 1970s. Sampling Grand Funk Railroad’s tune of the same name, Wilson’s strong yet sweet tone glides along effortlessly expressing agony over her heartbreak.
