Jessie Ware Performs “Running” On ‘Conan’, Sounds Flawless: Watch

It’s hard to believe that it’s been a year and a half since we first singled out Jessie Ware on our Women About To Pop list, and nearly a full year since her gorgeous debut LP Devotion landed at #3 on our 2012 Best Albums roundup (mind you, based on the import, four months before the record was even released in America). But here we are, and somehow this talented UK singer has yet to break through in a major way stateside.

Jessie’s still hard at work on that, however, and her latest North American tour just ended last night in Los Angeles. While in sunny SoCal, Ware hit up Conan for a performance of “Running,” which is easily one of the best tracks off Devotion. Give it a watch above.

PS Someone please nominate this woman for a Grammy next month!
