Jessie J gives all the feels in the simplistic, monochromatic visual for her powerful new ballad, “Not My Ex.”
The British songstress vents about a past romantic disappointment over the soulful instrumental. Seated on a stool and staring into the camera, she reflects on a controlling ex while at the same time preparing to give her heart to a new relationship.
“I can promise we won’t be like them,” she sings. “I’m falling for you / You’re falling for me / I won’t promise I won’t walk away / I can promise it won’t be the same.”
Following “Think About That,” “Not My Ex” is a single off Jessie’s forthcoming R.O.S.E. LP, which is set to arrive next year. The album is an acronym for realizations, obsessions, sex, and empowerment, inspired by her struggles while making this project.
“For each letter there is a word, and for each word there is a song I will share with you,” she said of the title. “I’m strong enough now to let you in, to be real and to be free.”
