It’s pretty f**king hard to do justice to a song as beloved as Bob Marley’s One Love. That’s why, with her debut feature, singer/songwriter Sha’leah Nikole ain’t even trying. EP single Bob Marley (One Love) is not, as I initially assumed, a cover, but rather a new composition with a hook slyly referencing the reggae classic. THX mellow, midtempo R&B boardwork bangs in the back as the Los Angeles native lays out her situation. She’s got all the trappings of adulthood: a job, a car, a degree… Now she just needs that one special man to spend her life with. Whether or not this song connects her with the guy of her dreams, I have no doubt it’ll spark a long and happy relationship between Nikole and the DJBooth readership. If you’re loving it, stay tuned for further details on the unsigned songstress’s next EP, which currently lacks both a title and a drop date.
This is the first song featured on DJBooth from this artist. If you would like to hear more, be sure to rate and comment!
