TGIF: New Jessie Ware

Pinned Image

Don't you think this song sounds like it belongs in the city? I do. Something about newcomer Jessie Ware's creamy soulfulness coupled with the retro keyboard beat reminds me of Mariah Carey's mid-90s LP (no judgment) Emotions - a cassette tape I wore out before the age of 8. Also, a collection of meant-for-metro R&B jams that probably energized my now longstanding city obsession. Considering her obvious vocal ability, I find Jessie Ware to be fabulously modest - crooning behind groovy hushed melodies and oozing this infectious kind of glamour (if you've seen her, you'll understand).

Tonight I'm going dancing to celebrate my fabulous best friend's birthday. She's definition fabulous, I might add. The kind of gal who juggles life's little bits of chaos with such grace, holds her friendships dear to her heart and squeezes every bit of merriment out of a sometimes impossible city that can either be your best friend or beat you up on any given day. To celebrate this one-of-a-kind city girl, let's kick off the weekend with a chic jam that's just as hip as the birthday babe.
