Rema Drops Video For Flirtatious Summer Anthem, "Charm"

The Nigerian superstar, Rema, continues to push creative boundaries with the new video for "Charm."

Rema continues to execute his creative agency with every musical output, and “Charm” is no exception. The hitmaker is once again conquering the charts on home turf with the music video for “Charm.”

Following the release of "Charm" it has been performing well on the charts, securing the number one spot in Nigeria’s TurnTable Top 100. It's a triumphant moment for the artist, whose music video recently dropped, adding an extra layer of excitement to the mix. With this new feat, "Charm" has now spent three consecutive weeks on the chart, solidifying its status as a true sensation.

In a captivating display of self-assurance, the artist's lyrics resonate with a sense of undeniable confidence, urging his love interest to shed her defenses and embrace vulnerability. The plea to "drop your body armor" underscores the artist's opulence and his ability to fulfill her every desire.

Taking front and center are his signature velvety vocals, which seamlessly meld into the sensuous rhythm, where dance takes center stage, paying homage to the irresistible allure of the woman who commands his unwavering attention. This song may just be summer’s flirtatious anthem.

The music video itself is cinematic, yet understated, and employs the use of shadow and optical illusion that adds an extra layer of appeal to the song. Unsurprisingly, the coined “Prince of Afrobeats” also showcased his magnetic charisma and star power in the video. Although the video is fairly simple and often shot against a subtle colorful backdrop, Rema still pours gusto and charm into the visual. With a summer that is chock full of various appearances and concerts across the world, dropping this new music video now was a strategic move.

Watch Wizkid’s Glitzy New Video For ‘Money And Love’

Afrobeats singer Wizkid has released the music video for his song “Money and Love.”

Nigerian superstar and Grammy award-winning artist Wizkid has just released a new music video for his song “Money and Love.” The DK- directed music video features vibrant colors and beautiful people. In November last year, the “Essence” crooner treated fans to his highly anticipated fifth studio album, More Love, Less Ego. “Money and Love” is one of the album's top tracks. Wizkid —who is also known as “Machala '' by his loyal fan base, Wizkid FC — displays his suave star power and swagger in the music video.

Throughout his career, Wiz has garnered a reputation for taking his time with his art, and this music video reflects that. The offering is a deliberate and well done visual output that showcases his ability to be chill, yet intentional about whatever project he puts his name on.

Over the years, the “Bad to Me” singer has been known to use a blended aesthetic of urban energy and relaxed, Afro-centric glamor in his visuals. In “Money and Love,” Wiz leans into that same urban energy by basking in vibrant colors and dynamic camera angles.

Wizkid, born Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, first caught his big break in 2010, and has come a long way since his "Holla at Your Boy” days. He has since released several successful singles and albums, including Superstar (2011), Ayo (2014), Sounds from the Other Side (2017), Made in Lagos (2020), and More Love, Less Ego (2022). He has also collaborated with several international artists, including Drake, Beyonce, and Skepta.

Beyond the release of his recent music video, Wizkid has been booked and busy. The 32-year-old Afrobeats icon will be performing at festivals across Europe and the United States this the summer.
