One of the most dazzling soulful lights to emerge in 2020 was Emilie Nicolas with her 5-star album LET HER BREATHE. Plaudits poured from Norwegian music critics, including this website, as the musically adventurous album delivered something truly new and truly unique.
Amongst the many gems on this collection was – Who’s Gonna Love You.
Her cultural fusion of R&B resonated from the first play – the chorus melody alone touches the soul. Revised and released as a duet Emilie invites fellow Norwegian Isah to join her and the concept works impeccably. His male vocal answers her loving pleas.
Since his debut in 2019, Isah has climbed to become a significant name in Norway’s growing Urban scene. Here, he delivers his smooth rap in Norwegian before joining Emilie in English. This linguistic-intertwining is as seamless as water seeping into sand.
With rich layers of instrumentation, exquisite vocals and skilful production to repeatedly explore and enjoy, this single remains a class above.
