We’re late on this one, but are there any singers right now more moving than Sampha and Jessie Ware? Two years since collaborating on this gem, “Valentine,” the two have gone on to become brilliant artists in their own right, the former as the man pulling the vocal strings behind SBTRKT’s post-dubstep goodness, and the latter shaping up as indie’s next diva-to-be.
On Valentine’s Day 2011, the pair released a heart-shaped vinyl for “Valentine” via Young Turks that’s still burning to this day. Clocking in at just over two minutes, the short song is nonetheless packed with the passion and tenderness that should fill every Feb. 14.
