Jessie Ware’s debut album, Devotion, was simply gorgeous; an intoxicating mix of two parts smooth and soulful R&B, one part dreamy electronics. She set her own bar pretty high with an album like that, so for her sophomore release, Tough Love, she’s called in the reinforcements: Miguel for the woozy "Kind Of Sometimes Maybe," Dev Hynes on "Want Your Feeling," “Hold On We’re Going Home” co-producer Nineteen85, and a handful of others with proven track records. Everything that’s come out so far from Tough Love is more expansive and seductive than anything from Devotion. Now let’s see if anything sticks quite as strongly as “Wildest Moments.” —Christine Werthman
