Nine is the second studio album by Australian singer Samantha Jade, released through Sony Music Australia on 20 November 2015. It is her first album of completely original material.
Nine has been in the works since Jade won The X Factor Australia in 2012, but experienced numerous delays – most notably the passing of her mother in 2014. In February 2014, Jade put her career on hold to care for her mother Jacqueline after she was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer. While in hospital, her mother was heavily involved in the album's plans. "She actually had a lot of input into it... she was in bed and I was there with her so I went through all the artwork with her, all the ideas for the songs and played her the songs we had."
After her mother passed four months later, Jade continued recording for the album, newly inspired by her recent experiences. On 18 November 2014, she released a new single, "Sweet Talk". She decided to release a positive, summery song, as she "didn’t want to come out with anything too deep after the kind of year I've had." It was originally intended to be the lead single from Nine, however after a moderate peak of number 38 on the ARIA Singles Chart, it did not make the final track list.
The album's title, and title track, Nine is a reference to the nine years between releasing her debut single, "Step Up", and finally achieving her goal of releasing her first album of original material. Jade further explains the meaning behind the title; “When I wrote ‘Nine’, I wanted to get a sense of positivity in even the darkest moments so it came with the reference of being on cloud 9 or a cat with nine lives. The number 9 has also always been important in our family, and our birth dates have some sort of connection with it too. The song is very organic in that sense and directly from my heart.”
Perth-born singer/songwriter Samantha Jade had already retired as a successful model in Australia when she made her worldwide pop music debut at the age of 16. Modeling began at age four; being bitten by the music bug came at age nine when Samantha won her first talent show singing "Amazing Grace." Writing music soon became a passion, and by 2004 when she was just 16 she landed her song "Secret Love" on the Shark Tale soundtrack. The song was performed by teen pop star JoJo, but it wasn't long before Jade's powerful singing voice would be featured on another soundtrack, 2006's Step Up, which put the now 18-year-old singer in the company of Ciara, Kelis, and Sean Paul. Jade's track, also titled "Step Up," was written in part by superstar songwriter Diane Warren and produced by Wyclef Jean. The Jive record company used the catchy single to promote Jade's own full-length debut, which was promised for later in the year. --Artist Biography by David Jeffries
