Rema Releases Hype New Single "Alien"

Recently crowned Apple Music’s Up Next artist - previously awarded to Billie Eilish, Khalid & H.E.R - Afropop’s prince Rema finally drops his conceptual track "Alien" out on Mavin Record/Jonzing World.

Produced by Level, trap-influenced “Alien” takes us on a journey through the mind of a young heart-breaker. Reciting “I’m an alien”, “I’m an alien”, “I’m an alien” whilst floating into a helium haze, we can sit back and admire his intergalactic inspiration. His unconventional approach to music, his unmatchable energy and his unique voice is what put him on the map and Alien’ is here to reaffirm this even more.


Hailing from the legendary Benin City, the 20-year-old prodigy continues to live up to the hype with his innate ability to blend genres and cultures. 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 definitely on his way for a global takeover. Celebrating the one-year anniversary of his breakthrough viral hit ‘Dumebi’, Rema reflects on early career highlights including winning ‘next rated superstar’ at the 2019 esteemed Headies Awards, appearing in Barack Obama’s playlist, as well as gracing the covers of Fader and Dazed & Confused.
