Best of 2014 - Tough Love - Jessie Ware

Best of 2014

Song: You & I (Forever)
Artist: Jessie Ware
Album: Tough Love

British R&B singer Jessie Ware avoided the sophomore slump this past year with an even better album than her fantastic debut.  Tough Love didn't go the more upbeat route as hinted by Devotion re-release single "Imagine it Was Us" hinted, the atmosphere remained the same but the songwriting got a little tighter with a stronger focus on each tracks melodies.  Still sexy as hell, just MORE.

Ware's vocal range is a highlight once again, but the production on Tough Love is also noteworthy, using a modern take on Prince's sexiest tracks and truly running with the "new Sade" comparisons by updating her lush, sensual vibe into something new.

Favorite tracks include singles "You & I (Forever)" and "Say You Love Me," which got an excellent remix from Gorgon City, as well as "Cruel," "Sweetest Song," and the opening title track.  But it's honestly good start-to-finish.
