Rema’s Rave & Roses is surely one of the most anticipated albums of 2022. After a couple of years establishing his dominance as one of the country’s most high-profile artists, he lays the groundwork for his debut album with the Andre Vibes and London-produced Calm Down. Calm Down is based on the thrill of finding love, the chase of a love interest whilst also addressing the flip side of unreciprocated feelings and disappointment at the beginning of it.
Speaking on the inspiration behind the song
“Calm down is about the events that led me to finding love at the time. It started at a party where I saw a girl who stood out from other girls so I felt like shooting my shot. We spoke and danced… but her friends didn’t let me get any closer which killed the vibe, but afterwards when they weren’t there, we stayed in touch and hit it off.”
Already a pop star in his own right, Rema is set to unleash chaos on the world with his album which will reinforce why the hype surrounding him is whole heartily deserved. Rave & Roses is portraying both sides of Rema’s personality and he set the tone early on with his unforgettable singles Bounce and Soundgasm that came out in 2021. Multidimensional, supernatural, otherworldly are synonymous with Rema and all eyes are on him for what’s to come. The album countdown has well and truly commenced.
