Jessie Ware covers If You Love Me

This is simply gorgeous: Jessie Ware puts her soulful spin on Brownstone's '90s R&B classic If You Love Me. Moody and mournful, it shows how badly a great tune was being drowned out by the original's New Jack Swing drum clatter.

Production comes from a new production duo called BenZel - two teenagers who hail from Osaka, Japan but live in New York, New York. They only set up their Twitter account last night, so this track is clearly meant as a calling card. One particularly nice touch is that they've sampled the original 1994 backing vocals in the chorus.

The video, meanwhile, was entirely filmed in a Lava Lamp.

Rather amazingly, the track is available to download for free on BenZel's SoundCloud page. One to keep and repeat.
