The video for the single, produced by hit making duo, The Runners, will be shot in New York on June 21st, as her single is impacting at radio. News of the summer release of Jessica's debut album on Mercury Records will be announced in the months ahead.

Jessica's Mercury career started at the top of the charts with, "Armageddon," a Top 5 Billboard dance hit. Elsewhere, Jessica can be heard on "Overboard," a duet with Justin Bieber, co-written and co-produced by Midi Mafia, on Justin's #1 album MY WORLD 2.0. Fitting her upbeat, feel-good vibe, she can be seen in the summer print campaign for Pastry's newest dance sneaker.

A working singer and child model since age two, Jessica is also a seasoned young songwriter.  She draws inspiration for her lyrics from her family, teenage experiences at school and in her budding music career - as well as her daydreams.  "Words are spinning in my head," she said about the 'old soul' perspective of her writing.  "I hope everyone can have fun listening to it, but I hope everyone will learn something because they can relate to what I'm singing about too!"
