Zenesoul mines an old-school romantic groove with her new single That Love — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

“When I first heard the beat from my producer Larumadeit, I instantly thought of that nostalgic type of love people had in the past,” Zenesoul (aka Angie Akhinagba) shares. “Think: ’90s Black love culture found in movies, family TV shows, and R&B music of the time. And this is how I usually write… Not with pen and paper, but with hearing the music, getting a theme or a vibe in mind, and then singing melodies and lyrics to expand it into a song.”

Born in Nigeria and based in Toronto, Zenesoul (pronounced Zen-soul) released her debut EP Worth in 2019. Since then, a steady stream of ceiling-shattering singles — including Love And Be Loved, Sunday and I Will Not Be Silenced — have joined her 2020 full-length debut Coffee.

Coffee took listeners through my tribulations with toxic love,” the neo-soul singer-songwriter says. “Since then, I’d made a pact to only search for the best love, so the song became a manifestation of the love I wanted in my life after such hard times dealing with it in the past. So in the lyrics of That Love, I explain I’m no longer settling for an inferior love anymore. I will only love someone that loves me the same way and, since I”m not perfect, their love doesn’t need to be either. It just needs to be true.”
