I love me some Jessie Ware, but I wasn’t completely sold on the first two singles, "Tough Love" and "Share It All" from her highly anticipated second album. Don’t get me wrong — they’re solid songs, but I knew there had to be a more powerful single on the way…one that would persuade more American fans take notice of this beloved songstress from across the pond.
"Say You Love Me" is exactly what I’ve been waiting for. From the moment I heard the bridge, about 3 minutes into this song (co-written with Ed Sheeran) — which sounds like one of those uplifting, percussion-filled sections of a ballad from The Lion King sung by a gospel choir — I was hooked. And they lyrics…just drop the mic now.
Cause I don’t wanna fall in love If you don’t wanna try, But all that I’ve been thinking of Is maybe that you’re mine Baby it looks as though we’re running out of words to say And love’s floating away
THIS is the song that I hope gets played everywhere — playlists, the radio, rom coms. Jessie Ware is the truth, y’all
