Rema's New Release: Bounce
Afro-fusion star Rema has caused more than a buzz since the release of his hit singles Iron Man and Dumebi. After following up with multiple EPs talks of an album have been looming.
Rema’s ‘Ravers’ will have to wait no more as the first single Bounce from his debut album is Out Now.
The Don Jazzy-produced track boasts an explosive introduction and we hear a slightly experimental side from Rema. The deep synths lead the track as Rema’s fuji-like melodies lace the song. Rema states that Bounce was “inspired by the luscious and magnificent body of the African woman” and the lyrics are somewhat what you would expect from the title. He’s in love with the way the girl’s booty bounces.
It’s an easy song to enjoy and the production and simplicity in the lyrics provide a great base for remixes and prefixes - I wouldn’t be surprised if we were served ‘Bounce (The Remixes)’ EP similar to the Dumebi collection.
This is the first time Rema has paired up with Mavin Records’ godfather, Don Jazzy. The production slightly moves away from the lighter/brighter sounds casual Rema fans know and love, as the low synth motif takes centre stage; it is still extremely danceable and melodious.
As the first glimpse from his debut album, Rema exhibits a consistent but still unpredictable presence with this track. Bounce provides a slightly experimental side to the artist with regards to production, but the menacing beat coupled with Rema’s enchanting vocal melodies continue to put him in a league of his own in the afro-fusion scene.
