Best Dance Tracks of the Week From Rochelle Jordan & More

Rochelle Jordan’s latest single, “Already,” is about the moment when one decides to leave a toxic relationship. It’s a moment, however difficult, that she navigates with grace and finesse. A highlight from her new album Play With the Changes (out now on Tokimonsta’s Young Art label), “Already” features Jordan’s vocals gliding over smooth deep house production — she’s cool and breezy in her delivery, as if finally emotionally detached when she tells her subject that if they were going to change for the better, it would have already happened. When she trades in her airy R&B croons for husky rap, her boss transformation feels complete.

“This song is the moment it becomes so clear to you, and you feel this sense of freedom because you know it’s actually over in your mind and heart,” Jordan says in a statement. “It takes a lot to get to this point because it’s scary to separate from what can seem strangely comfortable even if it’s literally killing your spirit.” — KRYSTAL RODRIGUEZ

Jessie Ware, “Please”

Ten months on from her excellent fourth album What’s Your Pleasure? — which topped Billboard’s best dance albums of 2020 list — club chanteuse Jessie Ware is already back with a new single. “Please,” a bright and bubbling house-pop jam, turns up the energy and the heat with rousing bursts of shakers, cascading synths and a gospel-like chorus; meanwhile, subtle crowd atmospherics teleport you to the back of a club where trysts await in the shadows. “Do you need company? Do you belong to me?” Ware inquires at a near-whisper. “Heaven’s where we’re headed,” she continues, but “if you want yours, I gotta get mine.” Part flirtation, part wishful thinking, entirely catchy. Moral of the story: Manners are sexy. “Please” is one of six new tracks included on the forthcoming What’s Your Pleasure? – The Platinum Pleasure Edition, due June 11 via PMR Records/FriendsKeep Secrets/Interscope. — K.R.
