Kind of…Sometimes…Maybe

Album: Tough Love (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • This BenZel-produced track was co-penned by Jessie Ware with Miguel. It finds the English singer exploring her sexy side whilst the Los Angeles neo-soul crooner whispers sweet nothings in the background. She told Complex magazine: "This is all thanks to Miguel, the absolute king of sexy music and talking! There were moments where me and the BenZel boys didn't know where to look, he made it so steamy in the studio I swear to God."

    "It was a really magic moment for me to work with someone whose album had been with me and replayed for so long," Ware added. "He was so generous and wonderful in the studio and now I think of him as extended family."
  • Ware told MTV UK how she recruited Miguel for this track: "I'd met him before when he'd done the UK release of 'Adorn' and he asked me to sing on it - which was totally unnecessary as it's the most perfect song," she said. "I asked him to return the favor and he did, and it felt a bit too good to be true."
