Heartical: Melanie Fiona, “Like I Love You”

July 18, 2011

Words by Eddie STATS Houghton

Our colleague Shamz over at Okayplayer put us up on this new Melanie Fiona tune. The Guyanese beauty takes a break from her soul (and jazz) grind and gets in touch with her creole roots on this sublime one drop jam “Like I Love You.” DJs, file this one in your lover’s set alongside Pressure Busspipe, Estelle x Sean Paul and John Legend x Buju Banton. Has a Supa Dups/Black Chiney feel to the riddim–and since he is the first cat who put us up on Ms. Fiona way back in like 2007, we’re betting that the feel is real. Some dupses have all the luck.
