Rema drops 3 new singles & deluxe album
Global superstar Benin City’s own Rema releases Raves & Roses Ultra, a deluxe version of his debut album released over a year ago today. The 22-year hasn’t taken his foot off the gas since his inception and continues to climb every chart possible, peaking at No.4 in the OCC, No.6 in the Billboard Hot 100 and has gone Gold once, Diamond six times and Platinum nine times across the globe.
Rema remains laser-focused on bringing Afrobeats worldwide and delivers the Ultra version featuring three new songs to celebrate the year anniversary. As always with Rema, expect the unexpected and lead single ‘Charm’ – produced by London (who also produced ‘Calm Down’) – combines a seductive beat with intimate and playful lyrics.
The past few years for Rema have been meteoric. From his sold-out tour to performing at the NBA All-Star game alongside Burna Boy and Tems to Jimmy Fallon, Rema has won the hearts of listeners young and old and has beaten every record set before him. The singer represents more than just himself and his generation, he does it for Benin City, his country, his continent, and he holds the responsibility with great pleasure and pride. It is impossible to think someone at 22 could have experienced so much in just over two decades, but Rema has been through the lowest of lows and now the highest of highs. Since he began, he came in and completely switched up the game and rapidly became one of the biggest and most internationally known names in the new wave of Afrobeats stars.
