How many of my music posts include the line, ‘here’s a great song that my mate Jordan showed me’? Most of them, if not all. This post is no exception, and it was his linking to Jessie Ware’s ‘Sweet Talk’ that began what is now a full-on girl crush. Sweet Talk is brilliant, but for me, it’s ‘Wildest Moments’ that really grabbed me. I can’t get enough of it, it’s just perfect.
“From the outside, everyone must be wondering why we try, why do we try? Baby in our wildest moments, we could be the greatest, we could be the greatest, baby in our wildest moments, we could be the worst of all”
Her voice is so versatile with great range, it’s strong, smooth, soulful and very, very pretty – check the harmonies on 110%. I feel like she could sing any style. Her song ‘Running’ gives me a kind of 80′s George Michaels vibe, and she totally swags the F out in the video. I’m watching it like, ‘woooord, preeeach.’ She’s a total babe, and looks fly as hell in all her clips. I get a little hypnotised watching her. Yep, girl crush as. I bought her album, ‘Devotion’ on iTunes last night, and am listening to it as I type up this post. I really hope you watch her videos over and over again and soak in her beauty and talent. It will make me, and you, happy. Honest.
