{ #JAM }: Jarreau Vandal f/ Olivia Nelson – Someone That You Love


I hope everyone had a great week! I actually woke up yesterday feeling awful so I’m taking it easy and at home. I’m thinking lots of baths & masks. I’ve been OBSESSED with this coffee mask from Lush! I’ll do a post on it for you guys, it’s that good.

I’m also in the process of getting my apartment into tip top shape. Spring Cleaning hard over here. I recently got new linens, furniture, the whole shebang so just getting totally organized. I also am getting my closet ready to sell too!

Can you guys believe it’s almost April? so crazy right?? We are currently planning my birthday in May in Palm Springs. If you have any suggestions – esp places to stay, let me know. So excited to get back there!

Anyways, let’s get into it, shall we?! Y’all will love this one.

Jarreau Vandal feat Olivia Nelson – Someone That You Love

This song had me hooked from the very beginning. It was one of the songs that concluded The Magician’s Magic Tape 69 {which he debuted in the Museum of Sex btw, love it}. It stood out immediately to me. From the vibe, to the lyrics – so good. It leaves you wanting more!

Jarreau Vandal is a producer from Amsterdam. Like myself, he grew up in the 90’s and was heavily influenced by the music then – think Jamiroquai, A Tribe Called Quest, Red Hot Chili Peppers & more. His grandfather was also  music producer and got him into it at 16. He then became a part of the Amsterdam nightclub & techno scene where he made his connections. Later being introduced to the LA Label “Soulection” who released his first EP. Expect to see a lot of him in 2017. {source}

In “Someone That You Love, he brings in Olivia Nelson, a songstress with vocals who rival Rhiannas at only 21 years old.

This song is full of soul with a funky bassline & strong female vocals.. not to mention, it’s incredibly catchy!  In fact, it kind of takes me back to the R&B I was obsessed with from the late 90’s early 00’s. I love it. If you were into that also, you are really in for a treat. I think it’s impossible to not be obsessed with this song. The right kind of nostalgia for sure.

If you like Anushka, Aluna George, Rhianna, or really any R&B babe {Ashanti, anyone?!}, you will love this sexy jam.

Anyways, let me know what you think! I think y’all are really going to love it. Any songs you are digging lately?

Have a great weekend & have fun for me while I rest in bed!! x
