Marian Mereba “Living on a Dream”

We’re listening to Marian Mereba’s “Kotton House, Vol. 1 EP” and her track “Living on a Dream” featuring Doug E. Fresh. …ooh ladi dadi (sorry, we had to.)

L.A. based by way of Atlanta singer/songwriter, Marian Mereba, has a hit with her collaboration with the infamous Doug E. Fresh on her song “Living on a Dream.” Her melodic voice combined with his “background vocals” is a sweet blend. Her calming song envelopes you like a hug and is on instant repeat.

How would you describe Marian’s music? Soul, R & B, folk, hip hop? We don’t. She ebbs and flows seamlessly through many styles all the while creating her own rich, smooth sound.  Check out her  other tracks, like our favorites “September” and “Going to London.” 


We can all relate to this song at some point in our lives. We are living on (key preposition) a dream. We’re not going to give up even if we “…can’t afford to buy stuff at the grocery store” or “…if our tank is low.” We’d “rather starve than settle…”

“So I can be anything I can try anything….
I’m living on a dream
I’m living on a dream
And you might be a dreamer
If you’re living on a dream like me”  

Live the dream, Marian. You’re a breath of fresh air, and a gem.
