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 track during Ware’s studio sessions with BenZel in L.A. Thus, this remix exists. If Ware does have her sights set on radio domination, Cole’s presence here will probably help. I can imagine this slotting in real nicely on the American airwaves. It debuted on Zane Lowe’s BBC show tonight, and you can hear it below.
Tough Love is out now on Island/PMR, and it’s our Album Of The Week.
