Waiting In Vain Remake: Bob Marley And The Wailers Collaborate With Tiwa Savage

Legendary Reggae musicians Bob Marley and The Wailers collaborate with Nigerian superstar, Tiwa Savage, to remake ‘Waiting In Vain’.

The iconic hit features on Bob Marley’s widely acclaimed 1977
album ‘Exodus’ which was named ‘Album of the Century’ in 1999 by Time Magazine! This collaboration is hot on the heels of the success of the Sarkodie-reimagined ‘Stir It Up’ released in January of this year.

Bob Marley is one of the most legendary figures in modern music; his influence is immeasurable. The Jamaican singer, musician, and songwriter inspires with social activism and politically conscious lyrics
fused with lovers-rock, ska, and rocksteady elements. As a pioneer of Reggae, Bob Marley was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994.

Tiwa Savage

Named the ‘Queen of Afrobeats’ by Billboard in 2020, Tiwa Savage is a resilient force within Africa’s music industry. She continues to conquer the charts in her home country of Nigeria and abroad. In
In November 2018, she was crowned Best African Act by the MTV European Music Awards.

This follows nominations from the MTV African Music, BET, MOBO Awards, and more. Most recently, Tiwa Savage represented the Commonwealth by performing at King Charles III’s Coronation on the 6 May! On ‘Waiting In Vain’, a forlorn Bob Marley & Tiwa Savage call out to their love interests, as they anxiously
await their return through different seasons of the year.

This dialogue shows a lack of willingness to stand by any longer, however, the yearning in their voices tells that they will stay as long as forever for their lovers.

Speaking on the collaboration, Tiwa Savage says ‘“Bob Marley is an iconic artist who is revered in my home country, Nigeria, and all over Africa. His music and message are just as relevant today as it was
when they were first released all those years ago. I’m so I’m love with this record, and it is a complete honor to be
part of this great project” Watch this love story come to life with a colorful lyric video and visualizer on release
