Shaé Universe Shares 10 Gems on New Album ‘Love’s Letter’ (Review)

Shaé Universe is sunshine personified. One of the most exciting up-and-coming UK talents, the London-based singer pairs supremely soulful lyrics with addictive melodies.

Her new album ‘Love’s Letter‘ dropped on Valentine’s Day, and is a real heart-melter. The entire project feels like summer, warmth, and a truly safe space. When she isn’t going viral on TikTok for her incredible covers, Shaé Universe is on the cover of Spotify’s RADAR playlists and noted as one of Pandora’s 2024 artists to watch.

She has gained notoriety as the face of R&Drill: where R&B melodies and drill production fuse together. Her previous project ‘Unorthodox‘ made waves in the UK music scene. Moreover, it propelled this new sound, as she collaborated with major players such as Kojey Radical and ENNY.

Her stage name is no accident – Shaé Universe is truly building a world of support around her. However, this project propels her to new heights. This studio effort encourages fans to re-connect to your essence, un-learn things that don’t serve you, and know you are enough. The ten-track album represents ten letters she would have written to herself at differing points in her life. In summary, there is something for every listener in this project.

‘Summertime’

A personal highlight of ‘Love’s Letter‘ is ‘Summertime‘, which sets the pace for the entire album. The breathy and heart-warming vocals ooze from the slower-paced beat. It is a joyous love song with a sultry edge that is completely intoxicating.

‘LOML’

Released as a single in 2023, ‘LOML‘ has all the ingredients for an R&B hit – it’s seductive, smooth, and houses a melody that will get stuck in your head all day. In addition, the Nigerian-born talent posted a viral TikTok where she mashed up this record with R&B masterpiece: ‘Love Of My Life‘ by Erykah Badu. Badu, Brandy, and Jazmine Sullivan are artists she has cited as key influences, which are particularly evident across all the tracks on ‘Love’s Letter‘.

More Than Enough

Shaé Universe blesses us with the beautiful voice of Lalah Hathaway on the track ‘More Than Enough‘. The world needs songs like these more than ever right now – a track for the dark days when you have been made to feel less than you are. The incredible Hathaway has given her seal of approval to this new artist who is radiating light and positivity through her art.

There are many tracks on this project that showcase her fierce penmanship. “‘Cause you pour and your pour ’till you can’t give no more / And your waterfall is weary / But I hope you know deep down it your soul / That you are enough’.

Conclusion

In closing, ‘Love’s Letter‘ showcases both Shaé Universe’s talent and humble, honest nature. Her music feels healing and is always rooted in her faith. Let this new project warm up your February, and soundtrack your journey in love.
