Rema (Mavin/Jonzing World/Caroline)
10/22/19
 

WHAT IT IS: Championed by Barack Obama, who included track “Iron Man” in his revered summer playlist this year, it’s clear that the waves Rema’s been making across Nigeria have begun to crash across the world. And it’s totally understandable; it’s hard to think of another West African artist who has demonstrated such sophistication and maturity at such a tender age. Rema’s new project, Bad Commando, showcases diverse musical influences—from Afro-pop to trap—and earned him comparisons to Afrobeat’s reigning king Wizkid and U.S. superstar Young Thug.
