Jessie Ware's Official Top 10 biggest songs
20 June 2020 | By Rob Copsey

Jessie Ware's latest album - a collection of plush, late-night disco titled What's Your Pleasure? (out June 26) - is further proof that the London singer-songwriter has the sophisti-pop game on lock.

Now four albums deep into her career, we're revealing her ten biggest tracks, based on UK sales and streams using Official Charts Company data. Here's a closer look at the Top 5.

5. If You're Never Gonna Move
Released: 2013
Originally titled 110%, the song's name was changed due to a dispute over the sample of Big Pun's Dream Shatterer used (and since removed) in the track. It's beauty is in its simplicity as soothing, dreamy synth-pop.

4. Running
Released: 2012
Jessie's debut single, as with most of her debut album Devotion, is smooth and sultry soul-pop that immediately set up comparisons between Jessie and Sade. A Julio Bashmore production, the drum loop in the chorus is based on Prince's The Ballad Of Dorothy Parker.

3. Alone
Released: 2017
On her third album Glasshouse, Jessie made a bid for mainstream, teaming up with established songwriters and opting for sweeping ballads over left-leaning dance. Alone is among the best on the record, a song about romance that manages to swerve being corny. It's her second most-streamed track in the UK, with 17.3 million plays.

2. Wildest Moments
Released: 2012
Jessie carefully balances love, doubt, regret and hope on Devotion single Wildest Moments. Bolstered by thunderous production by The Invisible's Dave Okumu, this was arguably the song that made the general public sit up and take notice of Jessie.

1. Say You Love Me
Released: 2014
Proving once again that anything Ed Sheeran touches turns into a hit, Say You Love Me currently stands as Jessie's highest-charting song, peaking at Number 22. It'd be unfair to attribute its success solely to Ed: Jessie delivers possibly her best vocal ever here, seemingly powerful enough to soften its guitar-twanging Sheeran-isms. With 453,000 chart sales, including 35 million streams, it ranks as Jessie's biggest song.

Whats Your Pleasure is bound to be one of the best albums of the century judging from the 5 songs that have been released so far... My favorites are Mirage(dont stop), Spotlight, Adore u & Save a kiss...

Jessie deserves to be a huge star. I don't understand why she isn't.

Didn't think she was big enough to warrant one of these OCC articles. I agree she's under rated though. Amazing top 2 but I wish Champagne Kisses was a bit higher up the list wub.gif

ohhh that's why I think it's one of her worst songs to date.....

there are planty fantastic tunes that miss this list, like Save a Kiss, Your Domino, Night Light, Love to Love, Imagine It Was Us and so on and on.... she's one of the most underrated UK acts of recent times

from last Music Week article:

https://www.musicweek.com/talent/rea...-career/080128


Her Mercury-nominated Top 5 debut Devotion (132,618 sales, OCC) came out in 2012, and was followed by two more Top 10 albums Tough Love in 2014 (93,718 sales) and 2017s Glasshouse (43,412).

Can't wait for the new album, might have to listen to the old ones this week after this trip down memory lane.

Saw her play a small venue in Belfast before around the Champayne Kisses era and she was unreal!

I genuinely think she is the best vocalist of our time, it's a crime how she's never been bigger than she is.

'Say You Love Me' definitely isn't her best song by any stretch, but I get why it's the biggest.
