"Music consistently inspires me. All different genres. Growing up listening to soul records, R&B, pop.. Life inspires me to write. People inspire me to write. Just being is a massive part of inspiration."

Last week at Cannes Lions, I had the honor of interviewing Jess Glynne, Grammy Award winning artist, before she performed at the AOL party. Jess is one of only 2 women to have five number-one singles in the UK, She rose to prominence as a featured artist on Clean Bandit's single "Rather Be" and counts Frank Ocean and Amy Winehouse among her musical influences.

Watch as we discuss the creative process that goes into making an album, what inspires her, and the best advice she's been given.
