Price Tag Chords: Learn the progressions


Price Tag guitar lesson with TAB

You could boil down Price Tag‘s chords to just four bars on repeat, like this:

||: F (I) | Am (III) | Dm7 (VI) | Bb (IV) :||

The opening movement is the same as Marvin Gaye’s Let’s Get It On, hearing a progression in several songs like this is great when learning how to spot it.

AmDm, or III – VI is like the end of a minor blues, compare it to the subtle difference of VI – II, also two minor chords a 4th apart.

The final two chords, DmBb are one of my favourites, compare it to the movement of Bbmaj7Bb. I do feel Dm7 works better than Dm, this makes the Bb more powerful as the root of Dm is the 3rd of Bb.

Now go back to F and Am and compare this to FFmaj7.

Repetitive pop song chord progressions like this are very clever, there’s a reason we can hear it on repeat for 4 minutes without getting bored!

Here’s some TAB for how I would suggest you play this on just one acoustic guitar, notice how the strumming is divided up and bass notes pop out.

Price Tag is Jessie J’s signature song!

When Jessie J’s signature song Price Tag hit the airways back in 2011, few knew who Jessie J was. She had released one single before (Do It Like A Dude) but Price Tag is what made her.

2011 was in a way the peak of female U.K. singers with Adele, Amy Winehouse, Estelle, and Duffy all having hit the charts with hit after hit for half a decade.

In the U.S., P!nk, Christina Aguilera, Alicia Keys, and Beyonce had all been established stars for even longer, collectively paving the way for someone like Jessie J to seamlessly slot in.

Perhaps the biggest challenge for her was to follow it up after the success of the debut album had died down.

It would take until 2014 before Jessie J had a big hit again, now with the help of the next generation of female superstars Ariana Grande and rapper Nicki Minaj for the tune Bang Bang.

Even though Bang Bang was an even bigger tune (more than twice as many plays on Spotify by 2023), Price Tag will forever remain Jessie J’s signature song.

Cover bands in the U.K. have had this one engraved on the set list for many years and when it’s sometimes pulled out last minute for an emergency, everyone is expected to know it, after all, Price Tag only has four chords!
