When British soul singer Jessie Ware teamed up with the teenage Japanese production duo BenZel to cover “If You Love Me,” Brownstone’s 1994 R&B hit, the result was one of the most tender and unexpected musical surprises of the year. And now that cover has a video, from director Haley Wollens, in which we see a girl stripper-dancing in an almost-empty subway car. I’m not mad at it. It’s below.
As far as I can tell, there are no plans for a proper release of this song, and that’s too bad.
