New single “Love Me Still” celebrates 7 years of marriage

Sink into the soulful sounds of B. Valentine as she unveils her brand new single ‘Love Me Still’. A tender take on the Chaka Khan classic, B. Valentine’s irresistible vocal prowess and charm shines through as she effortlessly delivers her unique take on the much-loved song. Crediting Chaka Khan as a significant influence of her own music, B. Valentine pays homage to the icon through her flawless rendition of ‘Love Me Still’. Capturing the raw, honest and reflective emotions of the original record, B. Valentine delivers an exceptional performance, showcasing her undeniable talent.

The decision to release her cover of ‘Love me Still’ stemmed from B. Valentine’s Chaka Khan tribute during her residency at Los Angeles Pips on LaBrea.

Eric Valentine is known not merely for his rhythmic prowess as a drummer, but for his tasteful skills as a producer.

An incorporation of drums and percussion embodies the texture and mood of the song, masterfully complimenting B. Valentine’s unique voice as she renders soulful vocal melodies.
