Rema drops Afrobeat track dedicated to women around the globe

Rema by Niyi Okeowo

For the third week in a row, Rema is set to release “anotha banga.” Dropping on Mavin Records/Jonzing World, “Woman” is a song that expresses his appreciation and admiration for all females. 

Recently crowned Apple Music’s Up Next artist – previously awarded to Billie Eilish, Khalid & H.E.R – Afropop’s prince Rema has now released a trio of singles throughout June and July. He kicked things off with “Ginger Me,” a song created in a late-night studio session in London with UK producer The Elements. Quickly followed by trap-influenced track “Alien” which took us on a trippy journey through the mind of a young heartbreaker. 

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. With co-signs from the likes of Drake, Barack Obama and now Rihanna, Rema is on his way for a global takeover.

Stream “Woman” via Spotify below.

La Doña releases debut EP ‘Algo Nuevo’

Published

on

La Doña by Thalia Gochez

Latina artist La Doña has officially released her debut Algo Nuevo EP via Human Re-Sources. Produced heavily by Doña herself, the EP includes previously-released singles “Quién Me La Paga” (“Whose Going To Pay For It?” in English), an infectious cumbia-led track that denounces life’s ever-increasing expenses, and the self-coined “femmeton” anthem “Le Lo Lai,” which reverts the machismo paradigm so prevalent in reggaeton and hip-hop.

Speaking on the EP, La Doña says: “Algo nuevo is a gift of something new; it is a statement about the versatility of musical forms and diasporic rhythms; it is a marriage of the traditional with the contemporary; it is an offering and a statement to la raza, the boss girls, las malas, the non-binary and queer homies, ‘I see you, I am you, and I made this for you.'” 

The EP is a fruitful and masterful collage of La Doña’s world. The artist composes songs influenced heavily by Bay Area hyphy styles, lowrider culture, Mission muralismo, and musica de la (U.S./Mexico) frontera, while exploring radical brown femininity alongside love and pain.

Algo Nuevo also arrives alongside La Doña’s release show at The Chapel in San Francisco tonight where she’ll be joined by Sazon Libre, Chulita Vinyl Club, and Mariachi Juvenil La Misión.

After touring North America in support of Cuco, opening for legendary Mexican rock group Café Tacvba, and being named one of YouTube Music’s Foundry artists with past alumni including Rosalía, Dua Lipa, Chloe X Halle, and Gunna, La Doña is entering 2020 in full force.

Roddy Ricch has officially dropped the highly anticipated music video for “The Box” on Friday.

The Compton rapper premiered the impressive self-directed visual for “The Box” and there are several boxes scattered implanted in the clip, making the theme cohesive throughout the video.

“The Box” is the chart-topping song featured on Ricch’s debut studio album Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial, and has held the top spot on the Billboard charts for over five consecutive weeks.

In the video, Ricch is seeing scaling buildings, winning car races, lounging in the pool, slam-dunking basketballs and more. It concludes with him in a box factor and ultimately on display in a museum.

Ricch has made major plays this year with his win for Best Rap Performance at the 2020 Grammys for “Racks in the Middle with the late Nipsey Hussle. The Young emcee is currently on the second leg of his first headlining tour with shows coming up in Miami, Washington, D.C., and London.
