Jessie J has revealed one of her ambitions is to record a Christmas album and write some new future festive classics for it
Jessie J wants to release Christmas album.
The 'Keep Us Together' singer says it's on her "wish list" to record a festive LP but she wouldn't want to just record a collection of covers, she wants to write new Yuletide classics.
She told BANG Showbiz: "I would love to do a Christmas album it's one of the things on my wish list. But I want to write some new classic Christmas songs, I don't want to just sing 'Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer'."
Jessie insists one of the best things about having a big Christmas hit is that you make lots of money from it every single year.
She explained: "During the Christmas period, if you wrote 'Winter Wonderland', its brilliant. That's where the money is, songwriting."
Although not a Festive smash, Jessie banks a sizeable sum from Miley Cyrus' 2009 hit 'Party in the U.S.A.', which she co-wrote with Lukasz Gottwald and Claude Kelly and is played all the time at Disney theme parks.
She said: "I get paid something every time that track is played in a public domain, all the writers get money."
