Buzzing Nigerian artist Rema shares his first single and music video of the year "Beamer (Bad Boys)."

The track is the first single since the release of his 2019 EP Bad Commando. Produced by Rvssianm, the song features a sultry, drum-heavy beat and a catchy hook in which a chorus of female voices sing of their love for "bad boys."

Rema was one of the breakout stars of 2019, following the success of his hit single "Dumebi." His track "Iron Man" made it onto the Obama's summer playlist and he delivered a standout performance of his song "Bad Commando" on A COLORS SHOW.

The artist won the award for 'Best New MVP' at the 2020 Soundcity MVP awards, and is one of the biggest names amongst the new wave of talent coming from Nigeria.

"I tend to create sounds that are beyond the regular, taking the youths to a new level.," said the artist in an interview with OkayAfrica last year. "Showing them a fresh vision, showing them a new world."
