The 21-year-old London based artist, Olivia Nelson, absolutely kills it in her love song “Smother Me”. Olivia, who usually plays to a quicker, funkier tempo, slows this song down a bit and creates an R&B gem. The combination of her voice, the rhythm, and lyrics makes for a modern-day version of early 2000’s R&B. The sudden boost in her voice as she sings the hook is something you’ll feel in your core.

Left your mark without a bruise
The thrill of having so much to lose
I feel at home when I’m with you
I want your unprotected love
Give me all your unprotected love
I’m foolish, so foolish
But I can’t get enough
The lyrics tell the story of Olivia, someone she loves. She describes their love perfectly when she sings, Left your mark without a bruise. That is a line you will be seeing as a caption on a lot of as people’s Instagram posts.
