Songs about True love

Before zoning in on Africa, I need to start today’s article by saying: (sigh) True love… Glen Frey sang about it! Don Williams too, and even Coldplay back in 2014 before we ever knew what 2020 had in store for us. Who knew 2020 would bring masks! Lots of face masks… and a shortage of tissues, remember that (another sigh)… The “first world” can be funny at times. In all this chaos, we have no shortage of songs titled “True Love”. One of my personal favorites is a really old hit I now have stuck in my head. After Yemi Alade released her music video today (no prizes for guessing the title) I thought, hey! I haven’t heard a song titled true love in ages, so I dug up a few of them. Why? Even I’m still asking myself the same thing, hours later. All I know is; we all need some true love. Yes, even you!

In this article (as I always do, here on this blog) I wanted to applaud yet another “visually African” looking work-of-art. Today’s newly released “True love” video shows that Yemi Alade is a true force to be reckoned with. I am in true-love with her costumes, visuals, and colours. Today you get to watch an African music video that’s less than 24 hours old. Unless you came late to the party and found yourself finally here, weeks after the fact. Ok, now… are you all ready slow-porks? (a little bit of slang from an old 90s Saturday morning cartoon I shall not name… don’t even ask). Now, let’s do this!

Nigeria has done us proud with that video! At the end of this article, I have attached the lyrics for you all, especially those that don’t realise that most of that song was actually in English. Not all, but definitely most of it. Maybe the lyrics will help. Yes, actual English… with an accent! Before we got interrupted, I mentioned that the world has no shortage of songs titled “True love”. Would you like us to re-visit some of them together? Yeah? Coolbeans, that’s rad! (I know!!! More old slang for you to cringe at… rotfl). First up: P!nk’s version of True love.

Even a rebel like P!nk agrees: We all need some true love.

It would seem that my heading today was right on the money! Even a rebel like P!nk agrees: We all need some true love. What a great addition to my list of songs about true love. I know that here-and-there I tend to make some grammatical mistakes and typos, but I’m proud that I keep getting P!nk’s spelling right. Other than that, I always revisit and refine all my old posts. Even three days after publishing it. Enough about that, who is hungry for some more true love? Next up, I found proof that even Disney-juniors need some of that hot stuff too. Let’s checkout yet another song titled: True love!

Here is proof that even Disney-juniors need some of that hot stuff too

I left the next track for last because I struggled to find the full hit song on YouTube. At least not the full video, and that was partly because, its an old Zimbabwean song from the 80s. Each time I hear a song titled “True love” this is the track that comes to my mind. If you find the video’s sound quality to be unbearable or whatever, I have also attached the full audio version (slightly better) below the video. Here is Busi and a Zimbabwean band called Ilanga, singing: True love! Stepaside Disney kids, let Busi show you how it’s done!

As promised, here are the lyrics to the song that made this entire article possible. The latest “True love” song in the world. A hit by Nigerian songstress: Yemi Alade. Thank you so much for coming to my blog, I post new articles every day! So… see you tomorrow guys. Feel free to play the first song again, while you read the lyrics below.
