REJJIE SNOW CROONS ON ‘23’ AND DEBUT ALBUM ‘DEAR ANNIE’
Arguably Ireland’s greatest rapper Rejjie Snow releases mellifluous single ‘23’ from highly anticipated and critically acclaimed debut album ‘Dear Annie’.
The laid-back single showcases his commandingly charming, deep voice over jazzy drenched beats and technicolour keys. Old school in its influences, ‘23’ croons over a love that once was; his smooth delivery as dreamy as the music.
‘Dear Annie’ is a multi-faceted narrative of love, taking cues from various eras and genres of influence, covering hip-hop, R&B, pop, 70’s funk, soul and jazz. Calling his suitcase home, the cinematic album was written and recorded across LA, London and Paris, full of sweet nothings and cool as hell grooves.
The love-fuelled journey of ‘Dear Annie’ casts a slew of collaborators with production from Kaytranada, Cam O’bi and Rahki – a frequent Kendrick Lamar collaborator – with feature credits from Anna of The North and Aminé. The escapism of first single ‘Egyptian Luvr’ has amassed almost 4.5 million Spotify streams leading Pitchfork to conclude “Snow is on to something great.”
Establishing his name in 2013, Snow’s debut EP ‘Rejovich’ immediately topped the iTunes Hip-Hop Chart ahead of releases from Kanye West and J.Cole, with lead track ‘1992’ surpassing one million YouTube views. Follow up single ‘All Around the World’ recruited friend of a friend Lily-Rose Depp for the video, further catapulting him to viral status.
With the world taking notice the nomadic rapper signed to 300 Entertainment – home of Young Thug and Migos – supported Kendrick Lamar and was personally invited on tour by the Queen of Pop herself, Madonna.
This June Snow is bringing his Madonna approved, soothing vocals to enthral crowds across Australia and New Zealand for the very first time.
Join Rejjie Snow on his journey to the love-soaked depths of his soul.
