One of my favorite UK chanteuse’s is back!
Jessie Ware’s new single “Say You Love Me” proves how adept she is vocally and with her pen. The singer/songwriter voice has been heard on many other tracks, but honestly, her last album in 2012 was a masterpiece of melodic voicing and knowing your talent and gift. I’m always perking up when I hear her voice on a track. And “Say You Love Me” doesn’t disappoint either.
There’s no way to deny her talent as a singer because there’s not much else to focus on. The song builds into a fervor pitch as it goes along, yet teases your emotions throughout the verses and the chorus, and then reaches a climactic point that has you simply waving your hand in the air. Jessie’s amazing. Britain is truly a musical melting pot, and soul is not classifiable around race. This song slips into an ending with a group of voices which would of course be classified as a “Gospel” feel even.
Her new album is out October 21st here in the States. I look forward to hearing it!
