    So from being her highest charting album, it has fallen to a lower position than any of its predecessors in its second week.

    I officially retract my post from earlier in this thread where I suggested this album has potential to cross over to the casual straights :D

    Guys it’s just not available in the shops

    I’m sure when Our Price start stocking it again, it will shoot up the charts

    I think I'm ready for a rate


    11 Spotlight
    08 What's Your Pleasure?
    07 Ooh La La
    08 Soul Control
    10 Save A Kiss
    10 Adore You
    08 In Your Eyes
    09 Step Into My Life
    08 Read My Lips
    10 Mirage (Don't Stop)
    10 The Kill
    10 Remember Where You Are


    I'm having that contradiction where I think Ooh La La is a 05 because I don't like it anywhere near as much as the other songs, and then I play it in isolation and realise it's still better than most of the pop out there today. So hence the loon rate.

    The album is still actually growing on me, so I might rate it again soon.

    I think it's usually barely four figures at #100.

    The lowest sale quoted by James Masterton was #62 (Tammy Wynette Gold) which sold 1,475.

    Still, both Jess Glynne albums are in the chart, so at least the nation's favourite Jessica is still doing well.

    the glory hole, the latex :disco: some of the setups are really quite VISUALLY ENTICING - not at all bad for what must have been quite low budget.

    I honestly cannot believe this is the same person that released GLASSHOUSE!

    She seems to be having the time of her life, let's hope its a permanent change of lane :disco:

    Also - I truly love The Kill video. David Lynch meets low-fi 70s disco promos. What's not to love :disco: It fits the track PERFECTLY!

    So now she's been posting right-wing Zionist accounts on her Instagram. What is it with these fabulous pop stars being sooo disappointing in their political views?

    She's Jewish. That doesn't equal Zionist.

    Thanks for stating the obvious. I said she’s been reposting right-wing Zionist accounts.

    I've just had a look at her Instagram. What do you actually mean? I see nothing on there except her promoting her music?

    I think I'm looking at Jessie Ware sharing a fan's post saying he loves her, without realising that he also (completely separately elsewhere) saying he's a proud Zionist. So I'm gonna say she's innocent on this one.

    Looking a bit deeper into this it seems to have started when she reposted a meme about antisemitism on her story:

    The image itself seems absolutely innocuous (at least to me), and I can see why she shared it. The issue some people have is that it's a repost from a group called Zioness, which appears to have funding from right-wing groups and is dedicated to pushing the message that anti-Zionism is antisemitism into progressive spaces:


    (That second thread is quite long but it's worth a look as it goes into the group's messaging in depth and talks about why it's a problem)
    There isn't any evidence that Jessie Ware has looked into any of this particularly deeply, and though a closer look shows Zioness to be an pretty dodgy organisation personally I think she was just sharing a meme that spoke to her as a Jewish woman. Or maybe I'm wrong and she's a rabid Likud stan, who knows?

    This is all INCREDIBLY tepid to me :D

    The idea that Jessie Ware is pushing some sort of political agenda via sharing an Instagram story talking about her new video on her account...? A REACH!

    I agree! As it currently stands it feels like people seeing a pattern when they're looking at a LINE.

    The tweet in HLT's post has literally had about 6 replies and a quick Twitter search for "Jessie Ware" is just people talking about how great she is or the new video, so I wouldn't even say the "JeSsIe WaRe iS a ZiOnIsT" motion is too much to get worked up over.
