Jessie J sets new Official Chart Record

By Dan Lane

Congratulations to Jessie J who has set a new Official Chart record. The London-born singer has become the first British female solo artist to score six Top 10 hits from her first studio album.

Jessie debuted at Number 2 with her first single, Do It Like A Dude, in November 2010, before clocking up her first Number 1 in January of the following year with Price Tag FT B.o.B.. Price Tag went on to become the fourth biggest selling single of 2011.

Her next Top 10 hit came courtesy of the title track from her debut album, Who You Are, which peaked at Number 8 in March 2011. Her fourth single, Nobody’s Perfect, also went Top 10, climbing to Number 9 in April 2011.

Domino, taken from the Platinum Edition of Who You Are, climbed to Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart back in January of this year and earned Jessie her first Official Singles Chart Number 1 Award. You can watch a video of Jessie accepting her award below. It has since gone on to become the third biggest selling single of 2012 so far.

Her final Top 10 hit is her new single Laserlight FT David Guetta which climbed to Number 5 on Sunday’s (April 22) Official Singles Chart.

"I think I'm still in shock that I'm the first British female to have six top 10 singles from one album!" said Jessie on her Twitter.
