Rema’s Rave & Roses Ultra Becomes The Biggest Streaming Day and Afrobeats Success
Rema’s Rave & Roses Ultra Becomes The Biggest Streaming Day and Afrobeats Success: Rema’s biggest streaming day of all time on Spotify was on April 28, with 7.2 million streams. This milestone was achieved with the release of the deluxe version of his debut album, Rave & Roses, titled Rave & Roses Ultra. The album features 22 tracks, including six additional tracks, and highlights Rema’s versatility as an artist by incorporating different sounds and genres, such as Afrobeats, pop, and R&B.
Thematically, the album builds on its predecessor’s exploration of Rema‘s dual personality of youthful recklessness and sensitivity. Rema’s experimental approach to the album’s recording process allowed him to create different moods and stories that showcase his artistry and willingness to push boundaries.
The success of Rave & Roses Ultra solidifies Rema’s position as one of the leading artists in Afrobeats, a genre that has been gaining popularity in recent years. Afrobeats have become a global phenomenon, with other Nigerian artists like Burna Boy, Wizkid, and Davido leading the charge. Rema’s North American tour, which starts on July 15 and comprises 17 stops, will give fans the opportunity to experience the album in a live setting.
