"Love Was Made In Heaven" is taken from the SE Entertainment Records album, "CREOLEPATRA" by Nikkole.
Nikkole, who was selected for nomination in three categories at the 50th Annual Grammy Awards, eight categories at the 51st Annual Grammy Awards, and who has also been featured in many publications and trades including: Ebony, Billboard, BRE and Cosmopolitan magazines is delivering some good lovin’ music on her new single, “Love Was Made In Heaven” with a sexy new video to boot!
This new maxi-single is satisfying for both old school heads and today's hip music buyers: her background as a musician, singer and songwriter is steeped in a love for R&B married with a dedication to making her own brand of meaningful soulful music. “Love Was Made In Heaven” has the kind of smooth musical flow connected with great records made by pioneering singers. The song has old school string arrangements, lyrics that are endearingly flamboyant and melodies that will soothe your soul!
This young diva shows us “what’s up”, with a supple, velvety voice texture that glides up easily into a glossy Teena Marie and Deniece Williams territory. Nikkole has crafted a classic with this cut, and she isn't afraid to flaunt tradition and love of old school “real” feel good music in an industry where this is much needed.
Once again Nikkole joined forces with friend and innovative producer Lloyd Tolbert (Brandy, Eric Benet, Toni Braxton, Anthony Hamilton, Diana Ross) on four of the outstanding cuts.
This talented singer has always enjoyed collaborating with her idols on her projects, artists that she grew up listening to while polishing her skills… (The Emotions, Norman Brown, David T. Walker, Melle Mel), and now she has enlisted The Sax-man himself Everette Harp - a bona fide star in the smooth, or "contemporary" jazz genre (Anita Baker, Luther Vandross, Chaka Khan, Smokey Robinson, Chante Moore, Kenny Loggins) to join her on “Love Was Made In Heaven” (Live / Radio Edit) and “Love Was Made In Heaven” (Live / Full Version)…and it is a match made in heaven. This is certainly destined to be a wedding song must, and has already been chosen as this year’s top wedding song by THE WEDDING GUIDE.

Nikkole is not leaving anyone out on this maxi-single. She gives us the angelic album version, a hot and sexy throw back updated 60’s Supremes beat, a blazing hip-hop / pop club banger featuring and produced by Jojo of DoublePlay Music. In addition to all of that, Nikkole reaches out to her Euro-dance fans with an electronic sure-fire dance / trance groove.
Nikkole knocks it out of the ballpark with this one, in terms of the musical arrangements, deep emotions, and sweet lyrics. She pours her heart and soul into every version! “Love Was Made In Heaven”, is a masterful collection of new material that speaks to Nikkole’s deep love for good music.
