"So ill, gonna need a painkilla" -- that's how Jessie J. kicks off "Sweet Talker," and even skeptics might agree. Sisterhood summit "Bang Bang" and "Burnin' Up" ensure the first half is all highlights, welcoming the object of her affection into her car's backseat on the former while panting alongside 2 Chainz on the latter. Subtle she's not, as the bombast of "Fire" amply demonstrates. But it's all part of her sales pitch: "I can't color inside the lines." A special treat comes in the guest appearance of alt-rap heroes De La Soul on the synth-bass extravaganza "Seal Me with a Kiss."
