Video: Rema – Holiday
Video: Rema – Holiday: Rema, the globally renowned hitmaker, has released a double-sided single titled ‘Holiday’ and ‘Reason You’, marking his first solo release since his debut album ‘Rave&Roses’ last year. The two singles present Rema’s evolved sound, with the uptempo ‘Holiday’ reflecting on his struggles and the sacrifices he has made in his life, highlighting his self-belief despite doubts, criticism, and rejection, from Benin City to his debut EP in 2019.
Rema is best known for his hit single ‘Calm Down’, which secured No. 6 on The UK Official Charts and No. 1 on the Billboard Global (Excl. U.S) chart, becoming the best-performing Afrobeats video on Youtube of all time. The song received unwavering support across India and The UAE, as it was the first No. 1 single on the debut MENA chart. Moreover, Rema is currently the 65th most streamed artist on Spotify, with over 37 million monthly listeners, the highest amount an artist from Africa has ever achieved.
In 2022, Rema’s sold-out worldwide tour cemented his status as one of the most hyped artists in the global music scene. His two sold-out shows at Brixton in London saw surprise appearances from Skepta, Dave, and Fireboy DML, among others, with Rema’s high-energy performance impressing even the harshest critics.
A year since his debut album, Rema’s star has continued to shine brighter than ever, highlighting the immense impact Afrobeats has had on the world. As he has grown up in front of everyone’s eyes, Rema has always known the potential he held inside from day one.
