Jesy Nelson - Bad Thing
As debut solo singles go, Jesy Nelson's collaboration with Nicki Minaj, 'Boyz', is arguably one of the biggest musical missteps in recent history. But a year is a long time in Pop music, and she's ditched her record label and decided to give it another go. The result is the rather brilliant 'Bad Thing', a powerful, jazz- tinged ballad about domestic abuse (based on actual events, unfortunately) and is the track I wish she had released last year to announce her arrival. A quick warning, Nelson worked with Women's Aid on the video, which contains scenes you might find distressing.
