Recently crowned Apple Music’s Up Next artist, previously awarded to Billie Eilish, Khalid & H.E.R Rema, drops his new single “Ginger Me” on Mavin Records/Jonzing World.
Hailing from the legendary Benin City, the 20-year-old prodigy continues to live up to the hype with his innate ability to meld genres and cultures. With co-signs from the likes of Drake, Barack Obama, and now Rihanna, Rema is on his way for a global takeover.
Earlier this year, by chance Rema & UK producer The Elements, bumped into each other outside a night club in London.
Their immediate rapport took them on a late-night studio session also accompanied by superproducer, Steel Banglez where “Ginger Me” was made in a record number of hours.
Crediting his parents for introducing him to Fela Kuti & 2Face, Rema draws influences far beyond West Africa with Bollywood, Trap, Afrobeats, and Pop all becoming part of his trademark sound.
Paving the way for his generation, Rema’s trademark “‘Another Banga” and his bad commando teddy bear are just a few things that have become synonymous with this trailblazing identity.
