CH!EF – Love You Like I Should: 13th Floor New Song Of The Day

Fijian-born, Ōtautahi-based RnB artist CH!EF (Ratu Cokanasiga) has today released his feel-good new single ‘Love You Like I Should’.

Here’s the blurb with more:

CH!EFFollowing 2023 singles ‘It’s You’ (Spotify ‘Island Time’ Playlist) and ‘Until We Meet Again’ (NZ Hot Single Chart), CH!EF is continuing to build a discography surrounding his unique and soulful RnB sound, with Pasifika Reggae influences. Still in the early phases of what is set to be a long and successful career, he is already making waves across Australia and Aotearoa (CADA, Niu FM).

Love You Like I Should’ features upbeat instrumentation, paired with CH!EF’s stunning vocals and heartfelt lyrics – which speak to true love prevailing in the face of adversity. “It’s about taking a chance on love under the worst of circumstances,” explains CH!EF.

Made with the support of NZ On Air, the single was co-written and produced by friend and mentor Vince Harder (Stan Walker, P Money, Scribe, PopStars), at the local legend’s home studio in Tāmaki Makaurau. Speaking to the creative process, CH!EF says, “Vince just radiates a creative energy that’s contagious, it’s such a driving factor in my writing sessions.”

No stranger to working with such accomplished musicians and producers, he’s previously worked as a backing vocalist with Vince, Stan Walker and Marley Sola.


Also released today is a music video filmed and directed by Ethan Harris from Lucent Films in CH!EF’s hometown of Ōtautahi. “We wanted to revisit old school comedy-romance style videos, while keeping the message relevant for listeners,” says CH!EF. The video portrays an adorable narrative of new love, with a sense of humour that complements the bouncy track.

With fresh music in the works and more soulful sounds to be expected soon, CH!EF is already establishing himself as a force to be reckoned with in the Aotearoa RnB scene!
