Rouge Gathers The New Wave For a Bar Fest in ‘Popular Remix’
Costa Titch, Phanton Steeze, Tumi Tladi, Hanna and Blxckie drop verses on the remix to Rouge's 'Popular'.
South African lyricist Rouge recently released the highly anticipated remix to her single "Popular". The remix comes with verses from members of South Africa's new wave— Costa Titch, Phanton Steeze, Tumi Tladi, Hanna and Blxckie.
The song showcases the diverse styles of the country's new generation of hip-hop artists—from melodic to hard raps, and a variance of writing styles.
"Popular Remix" follows an impressive rollout. Prior to releasing the song, the emcee shared the artwork with the faces of each contributor blurred. Each blurred photo of the rappers was captioned with lines and catchphrases from their previous songs. Fans and artists alike participated in naming the rappers increasing engagement on Rouge's social media platforms.
