Today – 11th June – Benin City’s Rema reveals the next installment from his forthcoming debut album in the shape of “Soundgasm”, produced by London (Giggs, Drake, Summer Walker).
Rema’s visceral vocals are at the centre of the song whilst his playful wordplay paints a sensual picture. The guitar plays an unlikely lead character and is perfectly paired with a bouncy melody.
The 20-year-old has risen into mainstream consciousness globally with his unmatched vocals, ingenious songwriting and ease at being unapologetically himself. Showing no signs of taking his foot off the pedal now, 2021 has already seen Rema reach huge highs with; “Bounce”, “Dimension”, his collaboration with Skepta and Jae5, not to forget “Twisted Fantasy” his recent track with New York native Justine Skye.
As his album begins to take shape in the way Rema envisaged, he becomes more prepared for battle mode with each day that passes. His artistic approach is inspiring and has already influenced many artists both on the come up and fully established, although they’d never admit. With every song he evolves and his fluid approach to both himself and his music is what is setting him apart from the entire scene, creating a new framework for those who follow.
Rema continues to add to his list of achievements, on top of becoming one of Apple Music’s Up Next artists in 2020, joining the FIFA 2021 soundtrack, catching the attention of Drake and Rihanna he now has championing radio support from the likes of; Radio 1, 1Xtra and Kiss.
