Track/MP3: Jessie Ware – “Diamonds”

British vocalist JESSIE WARE is set to embark on her first North American tour this April and she displays here that she’s not afraid to build on anticipation. Recorded for a recent BBC session, Ware’s cover of Rihanna’s “Diamonds” is a tender shard of soul that embraces warm acoustics and shows how an artist’s indie cred can manhandle a radio hit. It’s severely lacking a verse from Mr. West but she does it justice and practically cripples you. Listen to it above.
