WAFIA - Let Me Love You

8/21/2014 Tunes For Loons 0 Comments


If you were thinking this is a Mario cover, then give yourself a cookie cuz yer smart! Yes my fellow loons, WAFIA has paid homage to one of the best R&B jams of the early 2000s. I'm willing to bet that many children were conceived to Mario's panty-dropping riffs - my money is on Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon, unless she strictly listens to "Y u so Obsessed With Me" or "Touch My Body" to get in the mood, which seems likely.* 

Now some of you may be wondering, who the eff is WAFIA? Yeah I had no clue either. Let me just save you the trouble of inquiring - all two of her other songs resemble a boring London Grammar or Birdy. Also, the bio on her FB page reads "Working on new stuff for your ears, but mainly my soul." I can't decide if this quote makes me sad or want to vom a little... I think both. If this music is a reflection of your soul, then your spirit animal must be a saltine or the less fun Hilton sister, both are synonymous in my mind. However, I like this cover, probably just because I like the song in general. Nonetheless, the female voice and modern production are refreshing. Sry for hating WAFIA, perhaps one day you will be more of a Triscuit kind of girl or a cheddar rice cake. Both are fucking delicious. 

*Obvi Nick has no say in this or anything for that matter, otherwise he would not be married to her. That or he never saw Glitter.
