Jessie Ware released What’s Your Pleasure? The Platinum Pleasure last week via PMR/Friends Keep Secrets/Interscope. It’s a deluxe edition of her acclaimed 2020-released album, What’s Your Pleasure?, and features eight bonus tracks, including six new songs (stream it here). Now she has shared a video for one of those bonus tracks, “Hot N Heavy.” The video features dancers Mimi Maxwel and Patric Kuo doing a routine to the song in a seemingly abandoned building. The filmmaker known as I COULD NEVER BE A DANCER directed the video and choreographed the routine with the dancers. Watch it below.

Previously she shared the first bonus track from the deluxe edition, “Please,” which was #1 on our Songs of the Week list. Then she shared a video for “Please.” Then she shared another of the bonus tracks, a dancefloor-ready anthem to desire, “Hot N Heavy,” which also made our Songs of the Week list. When the deluxe edition was released, bonus track “Pale Blue Light” also made our Songs of the Week list.

What’s Your Pleasure? was #5 on our Top 100 Albums of 2020 list. The deluxe edition includes eight extra tracks (including six new songs, the previously released “Overtime,” and a remix of “Adore You”). It will be available on all formats, including double vinyl and double cassette.

Ware had this to say in a previous press release: “I had such an amazing response to the What’s Your Pleasure? record that I didn’t want the lights to go up and the party to be over just yet! ‘Please’ is full of optimism and ready to be played in a place where we can all be together and flirt, dance, touch, and kiss. A wonderful excuse not to stop the party from ending.”

What’s Your Pleasure? was Ware’s fourth album and the follow-up to 2017’s Glasshouse. The album featured an array of collaborators, including Kindness, Danny Parker, Shungudzo Kuyimba, Clarence Coffee Jr., Benji B, Midland, Morgan Geist (Storm Queen), Matthew Tavares, Metronomy’s Joseph Mount, and James Ford (who was the primary collaborator on the album). The album’s “Remember Where You Are” was our #1 Song of the Week and also made it on former President Barack Obama’s playlist of his favorite songs of 2020. In February she shared a video for the song that starred British actress Gemma Arterton and also performed the song on The Graham Norton Show.
