Rema Lights Up Stormzy’s “Hide And Seek (Rema Remix)”
With the continuous service of back-to-back hits by Rema recently, it is safe to say Collaborations between Rema and the UK guys have never been unsuccessful. The youngster keeps giving us jewels, from Dimension with JAE5 and Skepta to FYN with AJ Tracey and Hide & Seek Remix with Stormzy.
On the remix of the beautiful song “Hide & Seek,” Nigerian singer-songwriter Rema works with British rapper, singer, and songwriter Stormzy. In contrast to the original version, the remix had some Afrobeats components, had a faster tempo, and featured Rema moving effortlessly to the instrumental.
Finito and Niphkeys collaborated on producing the “Hide & Seek” remix.
The Original was also a beautiful tune too. But, when seen as a whole, it was an unavoidable reminder of how towering a presence Stormzy has grown to be. And perhaps it helped him release all of that self-righteous arrogance because, on Hide and Seek (and even on the remix with Rema,) he explores the same emotionality that gave rise to some of his prior two albums’ most heartfelt moments.
Gentle notes are layered over a less-is-more percussion palette in a wonderfully produced song that also features vocals from Ayanna, Teni, and emerging Nigerian artist and superstar Oxlade.
