Tiwa Savage- a name that insists on ringing through households all over Africa is back with her second single Love Me Love Me Love Me. Forget about rejecting an undercover, nonsense love on first single Kele Kele Love, Tiwa instead shares her vulnerability while also showcasing diverse songwriting skills.
The sexy Nigerian born Sony/ATV and Grammy nominated songwriter (Fantasia, LeToya Luckett, Mya) exudes the same sultry brilliance that flourished on Kele Kele Love, except this time around she sounds sweet and simple on an 80′s Soul-Funk infused track similar to the vocal softness of American RnB/Pop starlet Kelly Rowland. Blending her Yoruba tongue with English as tastily as a Summer Fruit smoothie while demanding that he “toju me (take care of me)” and “love me”, you enticingly lose yourself in the groove and lyrics. Furthermore, the rhythmic percussion weaves a thread of enjoyment throughout the track guaranteeing that we stay for the ride.
UK Producer H Money (Chipmunk, Jamelia, Craig David) lends a hand once more, which has possibly sent both songs in converging directions. Although musically not as strikingly bold as Kele Kele Love, it is only the smoothness and slightly differing topic of content that set the two apart.
Tiwa is definitely stamping her international music expertise on the African scene, so as long as she doesn’t fall victim to the ‘One Sound Syndrome’ this bee is about to cause more than a buzz!
