Based on the two singles I’ve heard so far, Tough Love could be the album that catapults British songstress Jessie Ware into pop stardom. Her latest track, “Say You Love Me,” is a slow- burning ballad featuring slick production from a duo known as BenZel (Benny Blanco and Two Inch Punch) that’s in turns minimal and dramatic. The song most notably showcases Ware’s stunning vocal range. Wait until just after the halfway mark, and prepared to be blown away when a choir comes in to accompany her.
Tough Love comes out on October 21. In the meantime, stream “Say You Love Me” below.
