R&B/pop artist and actor Rob Murat hooks up with award-winning Ghanaian vocalist Adina Thembi on “Love Me Love,” a track written and produced by Rob.
“Love Me Love” presents the emotional unrest of two lovers as they struggle with feelings of uncertainty and distrust.
Talking about working with Adina, Rob shares, “This one was a lot of fun! Collaborating with Adina was a genuine honor and, honestly, the essential icing on this crazy cake I baked up. While creating this track and writing the song, I envisioned collaborating with a dope female artist to capture the full story being told. Feels good to see that vision come to life in such a global way!”
On her part, Adina adds, “I’m really excited to be able to add my bit to this beautiful piece! I love how empowering and real the lyrics are. It will definitely be something a lot of people can relate to. Can’t wait for the rest of the world to hear it!”
Along with his delicious music and his role in Netflix’s On My Block, the multi-talented Rob Murat has appeared on FOX TV’s Bones, as well as performing with Halle Berry in CBS’s Extant series. When not acting or in the recording studio, he produces music for features on VH1, BET, ESPN, CBS, TV One, HBO, and PBS.
Winning GMA’s (UK) Best Female Vocalist Award, as well as two VGMA awards as Female Vocalist of the Year, Adina’s list of prizes includes VGMA’s Record of the Year, 3Music Award’s Woman of the Year, Best Dressed Ghanaian Celebrity, along with receiving the most nominations for 2021’s Ghana Music Awards.
Adina’s latest hit, “WHY,” a reggae-flavored tune took top honors as Best Reggae Dancehall Song of the Year, demonstrating her command of all genres of music, including afrobeat and Ghanaian highlife music.
“Love Me Love” opens on a potently thumping kick drum topped by swirling R&B hues, followed by the entry of Rob’s velvety voice. When Adina’s dazzling, evocative voice takes over, she infuses the lyrics with the wild craziness engendered by love.
“Love me love / Leave me like you’re never gonna run away / Love me love / Leave me like it was always meant for you to stay.”
Simultaneously seething with low-slung percolating energy, “Love Me Love” mirrors the stormy passion discovered in the panorama of romantic desire.
