#BumpThis: Rema’s “Beamer”, Teni’s “Marry” & Dice Ailes’ “Pim Pim”

February 21, 2020

There’s so much new music being released that it’s hard for even the most loyal fans to wade through the trash to find the gems. That’s why we’ve created #BumpThis – a Friday series that features new songs, by and featuring Nigerians, that you absolutely need to hear.


Rema — “Beamer”

2019’s biggest breakout star, Rema doesn’t look to be slowing down this year. After dropping an engaging short film, Rema’s Realm, he’s now delivered two expectedly solid singles, “Beamer” and “Rainbow”.

The more infectious of the two new songs is definitely “Beamer”, which greatly benefits from Rvssian’s brilliant production work. On the track, Rema tries to woo a girl by bragging about his wealth and rising clout.

Teni — “Marry”

While 2019 wasn’t as big for Teni as her 2018 was, she still dropped her debut EP and landed a monster hit, “Billionaire”. Now, to kick off 2020, she’s dropped another potential hit, “Marry”.

On the JaySynths-produced track, Teni sings about feeling pressured to get married, while dealing with a 7-year relationship that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. It’s another relatable song from the typically relatable star.

Dice Ailes — “Pim Pim” ft. Olamide

Dice Ailes is an immensely underrated star, and while he doesn’t drop songs nearly as often as we’d like, whenever he does, it’s a banger. His latest effort, the Olamide-assisted “Pim Pim” is no different.

On the track, Dice begs a lover not to play games with his heart. Olamide, a welcome addition to just about any song, delivers an unsurprisingly solid verse, making this impressive track even better.
