CHOON OF THE DAY: "IF YOU LOVE ME" - BenZel feat. Jessie Ware

I've had the ultimate pleasure to admire Jessie Ware's debut tour date here in Dublin last Monday. She was simply sensational! "Devotion" songs sounded so strong and mighty, her vocal capacities are astonishing, her stage presence both charismatic and humble, delicious choice of covers with Brownstone's "If You Love Me" and "No To Love" wonderfully mixed with Marvin Gaye's "I Want You"... And then some of this year's best tunes the groovy "110%", the silky smooth "Sweet Talk", the epic "Running" and the ubiquitous "Wildest Moments" think I don't have any more doubts about it being the song of the year. Such a wicked atmosphere all together. The Brownstone cover comes as a surprising treat of a collaboration between Miss Ware and a mysterious Japanese duo obsessed with Denzel Washington called BenZel. And they're giving away the song generously for free on their soundcloud!

It's a great moment to remind ourselves of that pure class 90's r'n'b anthem in its original glory too...

And this is how Jessie Ware sang in the Sugar Club  on Monday:
