Jessie Ware - Jessie Ware shocked by Frank Ocean recognition

Subscribe To:

Jessie Ware was amazed Frank Ocean is a fan of her music.

The 'Sweet Talk' singer was too nervous to approach the rapper at the BRIT Awards last month, so struck up a conversation with his brother - and was stunned when her new friend quickly took her over to the US star to be introduced.

She said: ''I was chatting to Frank Ocean's brother as I couldn't bear to be that person who goes over to him. So I was chatting to his brother and I said my name and he was like, 'Jessie Ware? Frank's a big fan you know, come and meet him.' So I did and he hugged me. It was amazing.''

The 28-year-old singer - who was nominated for Best Female Solo Artist and Best Breakthrough at the awards - admitted the whole star-studded evening felt like something from a Hollywood blockbuster.

She told The Sun newspaper: ''It did feel really grand. It was weird for me as people I really admire came up to me and said nice things. The Universal records afterparty was mad too. I remember thinking it felt like we were in a scene out of 'Batman' in Gotham City.''
