Track of the Day: 'Wildest Moments'

Past Tracks

Jessie Ware is the next big UK post-Adele vocalist coming down the pike, and she's got a stronger electronic pedigree than Ms. Rolling in the Deep to go with her sultry voice. "Wildest Moments" is her big breakthrough as her own artist, and it's a perfect pop song for 2012. It has the big drums of Adele's smash, but with its twinkly keyboards, it actually plays more like a downtempo Katy B cut. This track deserves repeated spins, because the atmosphere in it is one that takes a while to set its hooks. Rest assured, after a few plays, you'll be singing along more often than you might like.
