It’s been impossible to escape Miguel’s R&B gem “Adorn” — not that we’ve dared tried to.
Miguel’s self-produced slow burner, with its subdued electro groove and his swoon-worthy emotive croons, was a sleeper surprise and launched the avant-soul singer into mainstream and critical success, earning the radio smash a Grammy along the way.
But what could make one of the sweetest R&B love songs released in recent memory even sweeter? Enter Jessie Ware.
The British songstress, who like Miguel weaves soul and R&B through slow dripping electro textures, put her stamp on the song with a new remix, which hit the net Wednesday after premiering on Trevor Nelson’s BBC Radio 2 show ahead of their slot at the Wireless Festival in London this weekend.
Ware doesn’t add her own verse on the remix, instead opting to sweetly harmonize over Miguel’s falsetto, dipping in and out of the track as she pleases and bringing a little fire to a song that’s already been heating up plenty of bedrooms for the last year and a half.
It’s understated, graceful and repeat-worthy.
Ware’s take on the single should make folks forget about the official remix that featured an out-of-place Wiz Khalifa and a recent award show performance of the smash hit that turned the singer into a meme.
