Relative newcomer Rejjie Snow serves up his own take on a Jill Scott classic with the playful, soul-stirring loosie “She Loves Me.” The buzzy, young MC from Dublin, Ireland leads off with the sweet nothings of the original before switching gears just a bit to deliver a surprisingly biting verse over warm chords from keyboardist Bobby Bomack. If you’re acquainted with Jill’s version, the flip makes a familiar-yet-fresh addition to your headphone shuffle. If you’re acquainted with young R. Snow this cover/re-work of a neo-soul gem adds a whole new dimension to his style–and if you’re not yet acquainted, you can get more on his background and growing catalogue via rejjiesnow.com.
