Jess Glynne made her breakthrough in the early 2010’s, debuting a silky soulful voice that was featured on the chart-topping electronic dance tracks “Rather Be” with Clean Bandit and “My Love” with Route 94. Glynne released her debut studio album I Cry When I Laugh in 2015. The album debuted at the number one spot on the UK Albums Chart and spawned two number one singles, “Hold My Hand” and “Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself.” Her second studio album Always in Between dropped in June 2018 and produced the hit single “I’ll Be There.” The track was another number one hit, making Glynne the first British female solo artist to have seven number one singles on the UK Singles Chart. The rising star has cited several artists as influences on her style and sound, including Adele, Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, and Etta James. She has also noted rappers like Eminem, Jay Z, and Kendrick Lamar as inspirations for her songwriting.
