Critically acclaimed Mercury Prize nominee Jessie Ware has teamed up with Japanese teenage duo BenZel to cover Brownstone’s ‘If You Love Me’.
Jessie paired up BenZel, the moniker of Two Inch Punch and Benny Blanco’s duo project.
The last time ‘If You Love Me’ had any considerable airplay was 1994, so it’s about time the R&B ballad resurfaced, and nobody can do a torch song like Jessie Ware. Her soulful vocals, paired with BenZel’s love of ’90′s R&B and J. Dilla’ has resulted in a track with beautiful depth, realised with crisp production and complimentary gospel-style backing vocals.
The video, directed by Kate Moross, features smoky, colourful visuals featuring a silhouette of Jessie, singing and moving gently. Have you ever seen a silhouette so beautiful?
