Jessie Ware – “Say You Love Me (Gorgon City Remix)”

Jessie Ware's recent single "Say You Love Me" was bigger and bolder than anything we'd yet heard from her. The new video for that song takes a similar approach with its directness.

Jessie Ware – “Say You Love Me”

Devotion was the kind of debut album that can loom over an artist's entire career, never to be repeated.

Jessie Ware – “Share It All”

Jessie Ware's Tough Love title track showed the UK singer has not lost a step since 2012's tremendous debut Devotion.
