Alive

  • This is the title track of Jessie J's second album. She told Radio 1Xtra DJ Twin B: "I wrote that song with four chords on a piano and that was it. I wanted to write a song that represents how I feel right now."

    "I feel like I now know what I need to be as an aunt," Jessie continued. "As a sister. As a mother one day. I know what I want to leave behind. I know what kind of friend I want to be. I'm not saying I am that person right now, but I'm saying that in the sense that I know how I want to get there and that's what the song is about."
