MOSAERT: A New Clothing Line By Stromae

View the full lookbook from Stromae's college-inspired new clothing line MOSAERT, a collaboration with Brussels-based studio Boldatwork.

Belgian artist of the moment Stromae, creator of one last year’s most striking music videos and his national team's World Cup anthem, has launched MOSAERT —a clothing line christened after an acronym of his artist name. For his first collection, Stromae (real name Paul Van Haver) collaborated with Brussels studio Boldatwork to develop several colorful patterns and psychedelic prints presented in polos, shirts, cardigans and high socks. "The unisex collection is defined by college-style looks, isometric jacquards and African wax color motifs and printing techniques," states the label. The brand is proudly manufactured in Europe (France, Belgium and Portugal) and only available in limited stocks. The lookbook draws inspiration from old school class photos, we’re sure you’ll enjoy it. MOSAERT is available at Colette in France and Hunting & Collecting in Belgium.

Rema Welcomes 2021 With New Single 'Bounce'

The Don Jazzy produced track reminds us of why the Nigerian singer-songwriter is topping charts.

Nigerian golden boy Rema took his time on deciding how to start of 2021—and we're glad he did.

The afropop hitmaker is out with his first project of the year, "Bounce", after stunning fans with word of an upcoming album, and the cooks in this kitchen have not disappointed.

Keeping it in the Mavin Records family, legendary producer Don Jazzy sprinkles his magic on the track, while undoubtedly motivating the young singer-songwriter to be his best self. And with this track being like nothing we've heard from Rema before, one could say Jazzy succeeded. "Bounce", fast-paced and fierce, is a love song dedicated to bewitchingly beautiful and blessed bottoms. The candid declaration and hip shaking beat are a force duo and we can't help but love it.

Of the single and collaboration with head honcho Don Jazzy, Rema says, "This record was inspired by the luscious and magnificent body of the African woman. Furthermore, I'm really excited about this tune because it's my first single with the legendary Don Jazzy."

Honestly, when you start the year off with a banger, you get to make songs about butts.
