Jessie Ware‘s last solo feature, an April 2013 cover of Martika’s Love Thy Will Be Done, received surprisingly harsh feedback from our readers, who awarded it an average of two out of five stars. A little Tough Love can be beneficial when it motivates an artist to up his or her game, and that’s exactly what seems to have happened here. Fans of ‘80s pop balladry will be in heaven when they hit play on this promo single, which finds the Universal/Island Records recording artist showcasing her airy, yet powerful vocal presence over the gauzy synth boardwork of production duo BenZel (Benny Blanco and Two Inch Punch). Are you feeling Ware’s latest effort? Then stay tuned; Tough Love isn’t part of a larger set, but we’ll keep you posted on the artist’s plans as further details emerge.
Update: We have added the BRTHR-directed visuals for Jessie Ware’s Tough Love single.
