Jessie J Talks Brandy Collaboration: ‘I Started Crying, She’s Just Brandy’

Jessie J was brought to tears when she heard Brandy's voice on a new song slated to be featured on her anticipated sophomore album, "Alive."

Titled "Conquer This World," the empowering track came together after a chance meeting between the two at Clive Davis' annual Pre-Grammy party.

"The Brandy duet was a dream. It was on my dream list. I had the honor of meeting Brandy and working with her at the Clive Davis Pre-Grammy party, where myself, Monica and Brandy were doing the Diana Ross tribute. Obviously, sadly, that night Whitney passed. We never performed, but I was able to maintain a friendship with Brandy and Monica…. I wrote "Conquer The World" and was like 'this would be an amazing duet with Brandy," Jessie J shared in a recent interview with That Grape Juice.

According to Jessie J, the "Two Eleven" singer agreed to record for the song after receiving a chance text from her and when she got it, while getting her hair cut, it brought tears to her eyes.

"When I got it I started crying. It was a lot. She's just Brandy. She's amazing," Jessie J shares in video below.

As for the rest of her new album, Jessie J went on to say that she wanted to work with people that would "bring out the best" in her.

"… I feel like I'm someone that works when under pressure and when having the opportunity to go in with Darkchild, Dr. Luke, Claude Kelly, Brandy, Big Sean, Dizzie Rascal… I feel very much like I pulled it together. And everyone that represented on the album has made it more special," said Jessie J.

"Alive" is due for released September 23.
