Former SBTRKT back-up vocalist Jessie Ware steps into the spotlight on her 2012 solo debut album, Devotion.
Listening to this record makes me wonder what's wrong with the rest of the shitty R&B singers out there that don't know how to do it like Jessie Ware does. Her mellowed voice & chilled out music is reserved, sophisticated and is never belt out simply because she can. Take note, Mariah. Normally, this sort of music really isn't my thing at all but I can't deny the awesomeness of this girl and her album. A rare gem in a music genre that's littered with so much overly dramatic schmaltz.
