Who is Jessica Jay?
I was browsing at a CD shop last week and stumbled on this new Jessica Jay cd called "My Heart Is Back". I didn't know she has released a new cd. Its been a while since we last heard from this mysterious singer. I first came to know of her when she came out in the early 90s with the song "Broken Hearted Woman". I first heard the song in a dark and smokey pub. Liked the song almost immediately and thought it was a pretty good upbeat rendition of the Faye Wong canto song "A Woman Who Is Easily Hurt" which inspired it I think. Of course Faye Wong's song was in turn based on the original Japanese song by Japanese singer Miyuki Nakajima. A quick look at the cd back cover reveals there are several new remixes of "Broken Hearted Woman" which ought to be interesting. However, there is no picture of her on the cover (front or back) so I still do not know how she looks like. There is never any official or confirmed picture of her. She's an enigma really. And I don't think I'm that far off to say that there are any fans out there who knows much about her. Trust me you could scour the internet for info about her but you won't find much. It will rather only bring you back to the original question, "Who is Jessica Jay" ?
