Video: Jessie Ware - Champagne Kisses

Jessie Ware's second album topped my year-end poll in 2014, and for good reason: It's brilliant.

Sultry and smoldering, it's a divine collection of electro-soul - which makes its poor sales particularly disappointing (it hasn't even gone silver in the UK yet).

Still, if any song is going to turn Ware's fortunes around, it's Champagne Kisses. The blissed out ballad is one of the sexiest songs she's ever recorded - although, as she's keen to point, out it's not about "expensive blowies".

The abstract, surerealist video is one of Ware's best, too, suggesting that better-informed people than me think it's a potential smash.

I do hope so.

PS - If you ever fancy one of those "press here for champagne" buttons that's featured in the video, there's a London restaurant called Bob Bob Ricard that provides them. It's expensive - but good for lunches if you're prepared to splash out.
