Watch: Rema - Holiday / Reason You
The award-winning global hit maker returns with a double-sided single release
Nigerian pop star Rema started his career in 2018, when a viral video of him freestylin over D’Prince’s Gucci Gang caught the attention of D’Prince himself - leading to a record deal for the young artist. With a self titled EP, 2022’s LP Rave & Roses, previous single Calm Down peaking at #19 on the ARIA charts, and a recent win at the Soundcity MVP Awards for Digital Artist of the Year this month under his belt, the musician/rapper/singer unveils his latest double-single release Holiday / Reason You.
Accompanied by vivid music video, Holiday is a uplifting, groove-ladened track which allows Rema to articulate his appreciation for how far he’s come and the people around him through effortless flows and addictive melodies. Grounded in its infectious foot-tapping rhythm, watch this 22-year old artist live it up with friends below, and be sure to stick around for the captivating choir-harmony outro.
On the b-side is Reason You, a more introspective and somber cut showing off Rema’s tender side. Still rooted in his signature Afrobeat style and sporting a sizzling hook delivered through enchanting, meditative vocals, it's a track dedicated to one particular individual who has caught his eye.
Currently ranked #61 most streamed artist on Spotify with over 37 million monthly listeners, the highest amount an artist from Africa has ever achieved, be sure to get across the infectious sounds of Rema with his latest double-track release Holiday / Reason You.
