Samzy Enlists Rema for New Single 'Red Dots'

The Nigerian artists link up for a catchy new song and video.

Rema teams with Nigerian newcomer Samzy for his new single "Red Dots."

Dallas-based Samzy delivers catchy verses while Rema performs his chant-like vocals on the hook. The trap-inflected song is an easy listen, fit for radio play.

The accompanying music video, which was shot on location in Dallas and LA, also features the two artists as they perform on top of a roof, and in a dimly-lit space. The video was directed by Patrick Ellis.

The track is the first single off Samzy's forthcoming debut EP Trendsetter, which is set to drop later this year, as Pulse Nigeria reports. The artist first came on the scene last year with his single "Chains."

Last we heard from Rema, he released the banger "Beamer (Bad Boys)" and also featured on the track "4 AM" with Manny Norté and 6LACK.

Watch the music video for "Red Dots" below.
