A&R Worldwide played a vital role in Jessie J’s early career by connecting her record label and management team with significant opportunities. In spring 2009, A&R Worldwide provided Jessie J with the chance to showcase her talent in front of influential music industry executives, opening doors of opportunity and propelling her career forward.
Jason Flom, the Chairman & CEO of Capitol Records & EMI North America at the time, personally signed Jessie J and acknowledged the impact of A&R Worldwide’s involvement. He credited A&R Worldwide for introducing Jessie J to key global tastemakers, setting the stage for her successful launch. Jessie J’s participation in the A&R Worldwide event and the subsequent support she received played a pivotal role in garnering global interest and support for this multi-Platinum selling artist.
Furthermore, in 2017, A&R Worldwide facilitated an introduction between Jessie J’s management and a media company in China. This led to Jessie J auditioning for a singing show similar to the X-Factor, making her the first international artist to compete on the series. Notably, she emerged as the winner, which greatly contributed to her career, celebrity status, and commercial success in China.
