The song’s iconic lyrics “She’s got a way about her/I don’t know what it is/But I know that I can’t live without her” are sweetened by the globetrotting singer, transfiguring it into an ode to love and womanhood.
Created by Richard Gottehrer (renowned songwriter, producer and founder of The Orchard and Instant Records) and Instant Records’ Allison Zatarain, Instant Love is a collection of love songs originally sung by men that have been reworked by talented female vocalists.

“I love the idea of women appreciating other women,” Lolo Zouai shared of her desire to get involved in Instant Love. “I think these days we are lacking female to female support and I was down to be a part of a project that challenged that mentality.”
Of the song itself, she added: “I chose this song because of the changes in the melody. It caught my ear and I knew that I could switch it up and make it my own. The lyrics reminded me of my best friend and I chose to dedicate it to her.”
In addition, Instant Love has released the second episode of their “Instant Love Nest” video series, where artists join Allison at her home for candid discussions about music, sisterhood and the power of women.
