Jessie Ware – “Champagne Kisses” Video

"Champagne Kisses" might be the most elegantly shattering song on Jessie Ware's lovely 2014 sophomore album Tough Love, and now it's got a truly strange vision of a music video. The clip is built around the same kind of surreal cartoon logic and severe '80s graphic design that propelled so many early MTV videos,… More »

Jessie Ware – “Meet Me In The Middle”

The soundtrack to the new megabudget Skinemax bomb Fifty Shades Of Grey is out today, and it commands considerably more starpower than the movie itself. We've already heard two new song from the Weeknd, "Earned It" and "Where You Belong," as well as a new Sia joint and a Beyoncé remix. More »

Late last year, the British soul singer Jessie Ware released her great sophomore album Tough Love and further proved that everything she does is worthy of your time. Here's some more evidence to support that theory. During a recent visit to the BBC's Live Lounge, Ware covered a song you might not know: "More »

The Week In Pop: Forecasting 2015’s Event Albums And Rising Stars

Take it from someone who started a weekly pop column last year: 2014 was a bad year for pop music. I write this knowing that there are still many self-satisfied blowhards in the world -- sometimes even in the comments section of this very website! -- who will tell you that every year is a… More »

Jessie Ware – “You & I (Forever) (Corbu Remix)”

We've already heard one club-ready remix of Jessie Ware's "You & I (Forever)," but Corbu have taken the track in a decidedly different direction. The Brooklyn dream-pop band have converted Ware's love song into a shimmering shoegaze production verging on trip-hop. It sounds as sultry and optimistic as the original, but in a… More »

The Week In Pop’s Top 50 Pop Songs Of 2014

Two weeks ago we looked at the year's biggest pop songs; now let's run down the best ones. There will be a lot of overlap, of course, partly because sometimes great songs get popular and partly because sometimes popular songs that initially strike you as insufferable end up wearing you down through sheer persistence.

The 50 Best Albums Of 2014

Music is a messy thing. There's too much of it, too many genres, too many ideas, for anyone to make sense out of all of it -- or even to hear all of it. The idea of imposing a narrative on 365 days of music, of making sense of a whole year, is a fool'… More »

Jessie Ware – “You & I (Forever) (Shift K3Y Remix)”

Shift K3Y has given Jessie Ware's Tough Love track "You And I (Forever)" a club-ready remix.

Jessie Ware – “Keep On Lying (Harry Fraud Remix)”

There is a remarkable depth to Jessie Ware's voice that makes even the most emotionally grating tracks on Tough Love sound inarguably gorgeous. Brooklyn-based producer Harry Fraud, who is best known for his work alongside major acts like Juicy J, Rick Ross, and French Montana, remixed Ware's track "Keep On Lying" for a Red… More »

Watch Jessie Ware Sing The Hell Out Of “Say You Love Me” On Seth Meyers

Jessie Ware's slow-burning soul ballad "Say You Love Me" is both my favorite song on her very good sophomore album Tough Love and one of my favorite songs of the year. Last night, Ware was a musical guest on Late Night With Seth Meyers, and she sang a warm, deeply felt version of… More »

Jessie Ware – “Kind Of…Sometimes…Maybe (J. Cole Remix)”

When I first heard "Kind Of... Sometimes... Maybe," Jessie Ware's Miguel collab from Tough Love, my first thought was not, "This needs a J. Cole verse tacked on the beginning," especially one that begins with the line, "Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers." But that was Cole's opinion when he heard the… More »

Jessie Ware has made major pop music strides with her second album, Tough Love, but it pays off, as Tom explained in his review when he called it "an example of how hard this soft-pop can kick you in the gut when it’s done just right." Last night, Ware played her album-release show i… More »

Album Of The Week: Jessie Ware Tough Love

Jessie Ware is through being cool. "Say You Love Me," the best song on her sophomore album Tough Love, has a gospel choir and an Ed Sheeran co-writing credit and a bridge that sounds like the song from Once that won the Oscar. It is a song that fully exists in Sam Smith territory. More »
