Jessie J's 'Excuse My Rude' - 'Do It Like a Dude' 0.5

Jessie J has been nothing but a mess quite recently releasing three singles from her not-so-anticipated sophomore album with two of them being a complete downgrade of previous hits. It's My Party as the premature sister of her biggest hit to date, Domino, is set for a release early-September with projection to chart like her first track for the album, Wild. Her newest musical Magnum Opus stylishly titled Excuse My Rude features American rapper Becky G who had previously collaborated with Brit Cher Lloyd for her Billboard Bubbling Chart (whatever you calll it) topper Oath. Rude is within the exact same formula in creating her best (but certainly not the biggest) song Do It Like  A Dude, originally penned for Rihanna. The pretentious swag it tries to transcend among listeners is quite mundane compared to the quiant yet sing-able Dude.

The verses of the song are quite identical to Dude but it's not necessarily a bad thing because it gives the song a Re-Up vibe from Dude but then when the chorus follows it completely brings the song into a very different place. Feels like it was the wrong chorus for those strong and sassy verses and the Becky G appearance didn't help at all and I would so prefer to have Alesha Dixon do the rap or even though I just can't with Tulisa, at least it would have some chart help.
