Who Did it Better?: [I Need This]

I may be a little late to the game, but I finally got into Jessie J, the English recording artist that’s been getting tons of buzz lately. With her singles Price Tag, Do It Like a Dude, and Nobody’s Perfect, the artist’s debut album Who You Are has reached the tops of the UK Charts. As I listened to the album, I discovered that I was a bit more familiar with her work than I’d thought. When track #12 [I Need This], came on in my iTunes rotation, I realized I had heard it before as a bonus track on the Deluxe Edition of Chris Brown’s Graffiti album. Jessie J, who is one of the co-writers for this song, added her rendition of it to her album, which was released over a year later. Check out both versions and see who you think delivered the track better.
