Speaking to Capital FM in January, Jessie revealed that she was a big fan of Whitney and that her track 'Domino' had been inspired by her.
"Me, Claude [Kelly] and [Dr.] Luke sat and listened to Whitney Houston in the studio, and Prince," Jessie told Capital FM. "I was like, 'I want to write my version of that in this day and age.""[We] wanted to do something up-tempo, fun, everyone can sing along to it, every age can dance to it.
"It's such a happy song, it makes me smile."
