“Love Now” features distinct, resonant vocals alongside a wistful but powerful contribution from the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. With lyrics that speak of hope and repair, “Love Now” serves as a poignant reminder to allow oneself to love and be loved.
Marieme adds, “I loved creating ‘Love Now’, I needed to get it out of me. I write a lot about how I want the future to be and I really think we can make a better world. My message is: ‘Live your life with love’.”
Inspired by the tumultuous current events over the last year, Marieme adds, “Love is the bridge to freedom, without love we can’t ever be free,” says Marieme, “So with every song I sing I’m trying to build this bridge so we can all be free. That is my mission in this world, to get us to realize our power and how similar we are.”
Producer and writer on the track Davy Nathan adds, “Writing ‘Love Now’ with Marieme was a magical experience. We had so many feelings about the current state of the world and we just channeled it into the song. We wrote and recorded it in less than an hour, it just poured out.”
Through her music, Marieme strives to inspire and empower. Her motto “Consciousness is the new Rock-n-Roll” is embodied throughout her work as a socially-conscious singer/songwriter. Marieme is the definition of the anti-diva, akin to Adele, Solange, and Janelle Monae, who use their voices and personas to cultivate honest, authentic, and reflective music based on their experiences. However, Marieme’s extended vocals paired with her striking visuals and conscious perspective set her apart as an individual in the industry.
Marieme released her debut self-titled EP Marieme in 2018. Her music has been featured in media such as Apple +’s Truth Be Told, CBS’s The Red Line, and Amy Schumer’s film I Feel Pretty amongst others. Recently, her cover of Cat Stevens “Be What You Must” was used for LinkedIn’s national television campaign.
