Today, Nigeria’s Rema reveals the next installment from his forthcoming debut album. Produced by London (Giggs, Drake, Summer Walker), “Soundgasm” puts Rema’s visceral vocals at the center of the song while his playful wordplay paints a sensual picture. The guitar plays an unlikely lead character and is perfectly paired with a bouncy melody.
The 21-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, and his most recent track “Twisted Fantasy” with New York native Justine Skye.
As his album begins to take shape in the way Rema envisioned, 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.
