Brave is a beautiful anthem to self-empowerment, featuring the unbridled soul of Jessie J and the production expertise of Don Diablo, whose contributions to the evolution of future-house and other flavors of modern EDM are widely known. GRAMMY® Award-nominated songstress Jessie J cracked the Billboard Top 20 with her ambitious platinum-selling debut Who You Are, and channels the earth-moving power of Aretha Franklin every time she sings to her millions of fans.

This collaboration between powerhouses of electronic dance music and soul-pop is a welcome one, while the music video fuses themes of magic and super-powers with an infectious pocket and unforgettable vocals. Brave, the latest from Don Diablo & Jessie J is out now via Casablanca Records, and explores the place that courage from: using the metaphor of clothing as armor, we explore the ability to harness our unique creative energy, and connect with the person we are meant to be.

Some things might get in my way
But I know I’ll be ok
