Rema, the Nigerian singer whose “Calm Down” remix with Selena Gomez has become a global hit — performed two singles on Fallon Wednesday night.
Backed by his band and dressed in a simple white puffer jacket and jeans, Rema delivered a soothing version of “Calm Down” before transitioning into the spiritual dance track “Holiday,” which he released in February. The latter single was produced by Blaisebeatz, who also produced the hits “Buga (Lo Lo Lo)” by Kizz Daniel and “Call Me Every Day” by Chris Brown featuring Wizkid.
Last month, Rema also shared “Reason You,” while his debut album Rave & Roses dropped last March, featuring his original, solo version of “Calm Down” amongst 16 tracks.
The artist headlined the All-Star Game halftime show in Utah this year along with fellow Nigerian stars Burna Boy and Tems for an Afrobeats-focused set.
