Your Pop Alternative Source
Jessie Ware’s tranquil force works quite like Beyonce’s serious album tracks: strong in vocals, innovative in production and haunting in their effect upon the listener. Ware’s smoky tone pierces through the spectrum that we’re used to hearing, echoing its way through each chorus. The singer’s take on pop infuses soul and R&B with charisma, which is why Devotion resonated so heavily with critics last year. Many were surprised to learn this was the singer’s first release, too, knowing how mature and established the sound felt.
