I remember hearing this song back in the day during my senior year of High-School when Mario entered the scene and all the girls LOVED it. (Ladies, I’m sure you know what I’m talking about.)
Who knows where the R&B crooner is now, but I’m so glad that his hit single from 2004 has been revived ten years later by 21-year-old Brisbane singer WAFIA.
Produced by Jack Vanzet (better known as Thrupence) and mixed and mastered by Andrei Eremin (Chet Faker, Oscar Key Sung), WAFIA‘s cover provides an ethereal vibe with a subtle electro-soul bounce. Very nice.
My only disappointment is that I kind of wish WAFIA flipped the original and sang it from a female’s perspective, but her softer and sweeter version of ‘Let Me Love You’ makes up for it.
