Bobby Love and Olive B Release Their Second Groovy Electronica Collaboration “Why”

Bobby Love kicked off 2019 with his single “New Love” in collaboration with Olive B, and now the two are back with their second groovy electronic track, “Why.” Featuring Love‘s deep, grooving house style and Olive B‘s captivating vocals, the track delivers a radio-friendly, organic electronica sound and lyrical prowess that will have you singing along to every vocal hook. After listening to the track, it’s easy to see why Olive B– who recently received airplay on Jamz Supernova on BBC Radio 1Xtra – and Bobby‘s styles fuse together so seamlessly. “Why” is out on Love’s home label Physical Presents, where he has also released “I Know” and “Drink About” as well as “New Love.” In fact, “Why” began with an unused verse from their previous collaboration – one that Bobby Love simply couldn’t get out of his head. Check out the story behind the new release in Bobby‘s own words below:

I’ve always loved the lyrics and performance of Olive B‘s voice on that verse in particular, so I decided to build a new song entirely around them. There’s a certain emotion in what she’s trying to say that I felt needed to be brought to life. I played the guitar chords around that idea and the rest of the song sort of fell into place. I’ve recently been obsessed with trying to capture an organic sound while still being electronic and familiar with my previous releases. I feel this song really captures that” – says Bobby Love.
