Not quite content with just giving us the best album of 2020, Jessie Ware is back with What’s Your Pleasure? The Platinum Pleasure Edition! “Please” is the first single Ware has teased from the new offering, which may or not include a feature by her fellow disco diva Kylie Minogue, packing the track with just as much spunk and dance floor-ready grooves as her 2020 singles. June better hurry her sweet arse up so we can get down to this track as Ware intended, on the sweaty, sticky tiles baby!
Jessie Ware, Billie Eilish and Little Mix (featuring Saweetie) reinvent the pop wheel in this week’s music playlist.
Jessie Ware – “Please”
Billie Eilish – “Your Power”
Another icon making their return to the musical fore this Friday is none other than a newly blonde Billie Eilish. The Grammy-award winner is of course on top form, armed with her signature soft vocals and a spine-chilling melody to fittingly introduce the world to her latest era. Penning the track about the devastating implications of power abuse, she’s only gone and self-directed the video too, sitting in a sparse mountainous terrain as an anaconda envelopes the singer in its unrelenting spiral. Welcome back, Billie!
Little Mix – “Confetti (feat. Saweetie)”
It’s a lineup we couldn’t have made any gayer if we tried. Jade, Leigh-Anne and Perry, Saweetie AND Drag Race UK’s badass London trio (Tayce, Bimini and A’Whora) are here to give “Confetti” a fierce, fun-loving facelift. Not ones to be upstaged in their own video, the Little Mix girls even do up drag kings for the day, temporarily resurrecting the boybands of our childhood for the balls to the wall occasion. And yes, we fancy them all.
Chiiild – “Gone”
Chiiild, you have done it again, delivering a relaxing slow-burner that makes the grind of the past week all but dissipate, leaving behind nothing but good vibes. Continuing to build buzz for the reveal of his debut album Hope 4 Sale, Chiiild’s new single “Gone” takes us on an alluring journey with two stubborn lovers, both separated by simple misunderstandings that appear when you least expect them. Mixing soulful R&B with stripped back indie, the singer’s butter-smooth vocals take this sonic confection to another level. Who knew therapy could sound this good?
Goldford – “Ride The Storm”
Reflecting the anxiety of the world around him, Goldford’s “Ride The Storm” reinvents the wheel for the male pop vocalist. With the singer’s powerful, weathered vocals at the forefront, Goldford wrestles with the track’s soulful instrumentation in a recalling of the hearty love songs from the 50s. Packed full of grandiose ferocity and an air of timeless elegance, the whole thing makes us feel like the main character of our own iconic Romance. Scarlett O’Hara eat your bloody heart out.
