Jess Glynne features on what may be the first huge hit released in 2014, Rather Be by Clean Bandit. It's no.1 on Shazam's new release chart and top 20 on iTunes just on pre-orders! Although I was disappointed to discover that the cute Asian girl in the video isn't actually Jess, I still think she's one to watch. Jess is signed to Atlantic as a solo artist and managed by UROK (Plan B, Tom Odell). It's hard to know what direction her own music will take, but as she's been writing with Jin Jin it shouldn't be too far from pop. You can hear more of her vocals on the 2013 underground dance hit My Love by Route 94.
