Listen to Wizkid’s Cover of Bob Marley’s “One Love”

Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, known professionally as Wizkid, poses for photographers upon arrival at the premiere of the film 'Bob Marley: One Love' in London,

Nigerian artist Wizkid performs his rendition of Bob Marley’s classic “One Love,” fusing it with soulful vocals and real emotion.

Released on February 14, this cover is featured in the soundtrack EP for the Reinaldo Marcus Green-directed biopic, “Bob Marley: One Love (Music Inspired by the Film).” It’s a heartfelt homage to the legendary Jamaican musician, showcasing Wizkid’s exceptional talent and appreciation for Marley’s iconic work.

Joining Wizkid is fellow Nigerian singer/songwriter Bloody Civilian, who delivers a poignant rendition of Marley’s “Natural Mystic,” adding another dimension to her impressive repertoire.

These covers are part of a collective effort to celebrate Marley’s legacy, with contributions from various artists including Marley’s grandson Skip Marley, as well as American singers Daniel Caesar, Leon Bridges, and Kacey Musgraves, along with Canadian singer Jessie Reyez.

Through their interpretations, these artists pay tribute to Marley’s enduring influence on music and culture, reaffirming the universal appeal of his profound lyrics and melodies.

The soundtrack features many fresh takes on the notorious body of work produced by Bob Marley and his cohort The Wailers. So far, fans had earlier gotten previews of what the entire project will sound like via Musgraves’ emotional rendition of the hit single “Three Little Birds”, and Caesar’s R&B reimaging of “Waiting In Vain”, which was released today.

Bob Marley: One Love follows the Jamaican star’s journey as he returns to his home country in 1978 for the One Love Peace Concert, following an assassination attempt on him two years prior.
