“Calm Down” by Rema makes Afrobeats history in US

Rema’s Calm Down cannot stop making music history – the latest accolade for the hit by the 24-year-old Nigerian star is that it is now the most-streamed Afrobeats song in the US.

It has become “the first Afrobeats song in history to earn over one billion on-demand streams in the US”, the music monitoring platform Chart Data has said on X.

Last year, Chart Data had already described the track as the “most successful African song of all time”.

Billboard magazine music analysts put its success down to its “melancholy slow jam with a subtle hypnotic draw”.

“[It’s] the kind that gets stuck deep in the back of a listener’s mind, prompting them to return again and again.”

The song was released in February 2022 as a single off Rave and Roses, Rema’s debut album.

Rema, whose real name is Divine Ikubor, partnered with the US singer Selena Gomez a few months later for a remix of the song, which hit the billion-plays mark on the streaming app Spotify.

It became the first African song to spend a year on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at number three, making it the highest-charting song in which an Afrobeats musician was the lead artist.

The remix, which has nearly 894 million views on YouTube, is currently the most-watched music video by a Nigerian artist.

Reflecting on a recent encounter with an influencer who had tribal marks, Makinwa shared her thoughts on the practice.

She wrote, “Today I saw a beautiful influencer with tribal marks, and it made me think about the cruelty that culture brought upon us. Marking a child without their consent as a means of identification is evil. I know our parents didn’t know any better, but damnnnn!!!!”

In her subsequent posts, Makinwa emphasised her admiration for the beauty of people with tribal marks, but her concern remains the lack of consent in the practice.

“Thank God it’s abolished now. My grandma had tribal marks too. Some on her face and her arms. I wonder what life was like for her when she was younger, though I’m sure many people around her had the same. But thank God it’s cancelled now,” she continued.

In response to criticism from some X users, Makinwa clarified that her disapproval stems from the absence of consent, not the beauty of the marks.

“It’s not about the beauty or lack thereof, but the lack of consent”.
