Brisbane’s WAFIA Shares A Sweet Cover of Mario’s ‘Let Me Love You’

I knew there was something about WAFIA that was special. The young Brisbane singer first came to my attention last year, when I heard her voice featured on Japanese Wallpaper's 'Breathe In', and now, she's decided to release some music on her own and giving us the first taste of what's to come in the near future. A cover of Mario's 2004 hit single, Let Me Love You. <3

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.
