Bob Marley & The Wailers – Waiting In Vain Ft. Tiwa Savage


Waiting In Vain by Bob Marley & The Wailers Ft. Tiwa Savage

A Gundam holding a gun, damn!

The great Jamaican singer Bob Marley teams up with The Wailers to create the stirring song “Waiting In Vain.”


They recruited Tiwa Savage, a top-tier musician and composer who contributed a beautiful verse, to lend her vocals to this masterful interpretation of the song. Tiwa Savage is the queen of Nigerian music and an African bad girl.

Waiting In Vain” was a song by Bob Marley that was written in 1977. That year, it was published as a single and was given its first performance by Bob Marley and The Wailers.

Tiwa Savage said following the performance of the new track;

“Such an honour to do this refix with the original vocals of the ICON Bob Marley on this special project”.

If you enjoy good music, this charming masterpiece will certainly find a spot in your music library.

Quotable Lyrics;

I don’t wanna wait in vain for your loveI don’t wanna wait in vain for your love 
From the very first time, I placed my eyes on you, boyMy heart says follow throughBut I know, now, that I’m way down on your lineBut the waitin’ feel is fine 
So don’t treat me like a puppet on a string‘Cause I know how to do my thingDon’t talk to me as if you think I’m dumbI wanna know when you’re gonna come
See, I don’t wanna wait in vain for your love 
I don’t wanna wait in vain for your loveI don’t wanna wait in vain for your love
‘Cause if summer is hereI’m still waiting thereWinter is hereAnd I’m still waiting there
