'I Used to Love Her' - Fela Smith ft. Mario Evon
It’s totally coincidental that Nigerian-American Rapper, Fela Smith and I are featured on his new single, ‘I Used to Love Her’, from his soon to be released mixtape. It is also purely coincidental that the single I released earlier this year is titled ‘You Used 2 Love Me’, which has a similar sounding title. And finally Fela has his birthday on October 8 and I have mine on October 9, so it was only fitting for him to release this track to the world at midnight on October 8, 2012 #LibraPower.
I met Fela Smith more than a year ago at an event called ‘Rock the Mic’ in NY, and we kept in contact and eventually he approached me to sing a hook on this cool song. I was more than happy to be a part of the project. There is nothing I respect more than artists who stay on their grind and push to make their dream happen…Truly inspiring. On that note keep an eye out for my album, ‘Reggae-Soul Volume 1: M.E. On Love’ dropping in 2013.
I got the job of singing the Sean Stockman-esque hook on a song that speaks metaphorically about Fela’s loving, falling out of love with and being uncertain of his love love for music. Check out the song below:
