Photo Diary with UK songstress, Jess Glynne

by Morgan Vickery

Jess Glynne is the London-based singer/ songwriter breaking music chart history in the UK. Her most recent album, “Always In Between,” debuted at #1 in the UK [the only #1 album by a British female this year]. The songstress continues to push boundaries in the industry, furthering her feminist mission towards self-love. “Thursday,” is a featured song in the sophomore album, co-written with Ed Sheeran. The confident ballad speaks to her self-love pursuit:

“Sometimes I try to embrace all my insecurities

So I won't wear makeup on Thursday

'Cause who I am is enough

And there are many things that I could change so slightly

But why would I succumb to something so unlike me?

I was always taught to just be myself

Don't change for anyone”
