Jennifer O’Connor’s last single, “Where is Your Heart,” showcased the singer’s skill in an environment slightly different from her previous work. It was a taut, driving synthpop number that proved O’Connor’s versatility. On “I Do,” she returns to slightly more familiar terrain, but the impact is just as powerful. Over a tender, waltzing piano, O’Connor pledges her fealty in every way possible (“Every heartbreak, every mistake/ every word, every breath I take/ I, I do for you”). It’s as calm and moving as a lullaby.
