Jessie Ware – “Devotion” [Album Review]

We introduced you to British soulful diva Jessie Ware back in February when she released the sultry Julio Bashmore produced, “Running” , the ballad “Wildest Moments” and later the beautiful, R&B-Drum&Bass track, “110%.”

Well, last week we saw the release of Ware’s highly anticipated album-debut entitled, Devotion. Devotion is an incredible soulful affair that channels the beautiful sound and voice of sultry diva Lisa Stansfield, the delicate effervescence sound of Sade and the groovy, sensual, timeless musicality of the iconic Grace Jones.

The record seamlessly blends Soul and R&B with modern and contemporary electronic music that ranges from Pop to Disco to Hip-Hop. With it’s glorious blend of 80s keyboards and R&B grooves, “Still Love Me” and “Not To Love” are perfect examples of such clever musical union. Other highlights of the record include the gorgeous Diana Ross and The Supremes kind of ballad “Sweet Talk” and the beautiful, downtempo titled-track, “Devotion.”

The masterful sound production of this record is simply stellar from beginning to end. But it’s Jessie’s naturally alluring, soothing and dreamy vocals that shine brightly throughout each song.

Devotion is an incredible debut that stages the introduction of a shining new star.

 

Below are the videos for Ware’s first three releases, plus a video where she talks about Devotion track by track.
