Jessie J has revealed her new single 'Domino' was inspired by none other than Whitney Houston.

While some have said the Dr. Luke-produced dance track is reminiscent to music of the likes of Katy Perry, Jessie reveals she was actually inspired by the 80s dance sound of Whitney's I Wanna Dance With Somebody.'

"Me, [writer Claude Kelly] and [producer] Dr. Luke sat and listened to Whitney Houston in the studio, and Prince. I was like, 'I want to write my version of that in this day and age'," she told Capital FM.

"[We] wanted to do something uptempo, fun, everyone can sing along to it, every age can dance to it. It's such a happy song, it makes me smile," she added.

Domino is currently sitting at the top of the charts, making it Jessie's second number one single.
