Jessie Ware, oh, how we missed you. It has been two years since we last got new music from her and developed a crush. Well, now Ware is back with "Tough Love." Blending her '90s R&B aesthetic with an '80s Prince digital drumbeat and a contemporary use of random noise flourishes, the result was well worth the wait. A new record is expected later this year. She collaborated with Ed Sheeran on one of the songs, so add a plus to the pro–Ed Sheeran column.
