Stormzy Gives Us A Fresh Taste of His ‘Hide & Seek’ With Rema
British rapper Stormzy and Nigerian singer Rema have teamed up for a new remix of the song “Hide & Seek,” which is infused with the popular African music genre, Amapiano. The track, produced by Niphkey and Finito, highlights the musical versatility of both artists, while the instrumentals add another layer of definition to the song. The rhythmic and character-filled track features an Afro-sound that characterizes most African-themed dance records. Stormzy, who has Ghanaian roots and was raised in the UK, has always been vocal about his African heritage and has collaborated with several African artists in the past, including Burna Boy, Yaw Tog, and Kwesi Arthur.
This is the second time that Stormzy has remixed “Hide & Seek” – the first remix featured British girl group FLO. Rema, on the other hand, has been busy with several projects, including his recent stint at the NBA All-Star halftime performance. He has also earned accolades for “Calm Down,” which was the highest charting Afrobeats song on the Billboard Hot 100.
Stormzy’s “Hide & Seek” is one of the popular tracks from his third studio album, This Is What I Mean. The new remix features Rema’s additional vocals, and the reworked production gives the song a fresh and unique vibe. Stormzy has been making waves in the music industry and recently appeared on BBC Sounds to perform some of his hit songs, including “Crown,” “Give It To The Water,” and a classic cover of Oleta Adams’ “Get Here,” accompanied by members of the BBC Concert Orchestra.
The Stormzy and Rema collaboration showcases both artists’ musical talents and is sure to be a hit among fans. With its Amapiano infusion, the remix is set to create a new trend in the African music industry. Listen to the track on YouTube and enjoy the rhythm and character-filled beats.
