Rema is one of the Nigerian artists pushing Afrobeats beyond the shores of Africa in the last few years. With releases like Dumebi, Woman, Soundgasm, and the global hit Calm Down, the Mavin Records/Jonzing World lad is currently walking the walk that’ll leave his footprints in the sands of time, as far as Afrobeats is concerned.
Earlier in the year, Rema released his debut album, Rave & Roses and it brought instant flowers from fans and critics. The album has gone further to appear in different charts around the globe, including the SNEP chart, the Dutch chart, the Billboard World Album chart, and many others. The album is regarded by many as one of the best Afrobeats projects of 2022.
The Rave & Roses LP has been supported by singles like Soundgasm and Calm Down – apparently the biggest songs on the album. Both singles have garnered massive numbers on various digital streaming platforms and earned certification in different parts of the world, but I guess “numbers” isn’t the only way to qualify good music.
Off the Rave & Roses album, the third track “Dirty” has been targeted by core Rema fans (ravers) as a fan favorite. Although its numbers aren’t as high as Calm Down and Soundgasm, the song has received good reviews. Lo and behold, the wishes of the fans have been granted as Rema gives the impressive tune a visual treatment.
The official music video for London and Andre Vibez-produced track “Dirty” has been released via Mavin Records/Jonzing World. The video, directed by Earth Boi sees Rema and his love interest in scenes on a beach in Lagos, Nigeria, in a state of exhilaration and coziness. The video screams “romance” as Rema complements the lyrics of the song with his actions.
