The phrase was made popular by reggae legend Robert Nesta Marley, known worldwide as Bob Marley and The Waliers.
A song with the same title was released in 1977 on their album titled Exodus.
Have you ever been to the island of Jamaica?, Well if you haven't the people of our island will always greet you by saying "Welcome To Jamaica No Problem" or "One Love".
In the Urbandictionary the phrase One Love means One love refers to the universal love and respect expressed by all people for all people, regardless of race, creed, or color.
See lyrics to Bob Marley and The Wailers One Love song below..
One Love, One Heart Let's get together and feel all right Hear the children crying (One Love) Hear the children crying (One Heart) Sayin' give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right Sayin' let's get together and feel all right
Let them all pass all their dirty remarks (One Love) There is one question I'd really like to ask (One Heart) Is there a place for the hopeless sinner Who has hurt all mankind just to save his own? Believe me
One Love, One Heart Let's get together and feel all right As it was in the beginning (One Love) So shall it be in the end (One Heart) Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right One more thing
Let's get together to fight this Holy Armageddon (One Love) So when the Man comes there will be no no doom (One Song) Have pity on those whose chances grove thinner There ain't no hiding place from the Father of Creation
Sayin' One Love, One Heart Let's get together and feel all right I'm pleading to mankind (One Love) Oh Lord (One Heart)
Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right Let's get together and feel all right.
