Welcome to the wonderful world of Rejjie Snow.
In the midst of an almost sold out AUS/NZ tour, Rejjie Snow has unveiled the accompanying video for ‘Charlie Brown’, a standout from the critically acclaimed debut‘Dear Annie’.
The video was shot in Mexico with frequent collaborator Monica Gonzalez-Carter, and gives an unearthly take on meeting the parents. The single itself is an homage to Rejjie’s Irish roots, the original a cult hit ‘The Steady Song’ by Republic of Loose, and featuresAnna of the North.
“Getting the opportunity to shoot in Mexico was really cool,” Rejjie explains. “I’ve worked with Monica before and she told me to come out there so it was amazing to make it happen. This tune is one of my favourite Republic Of Loose records so it was amazing to be able to put my twist on it. The video is weird and I’ll let it speak for itself.”
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 enthrall crowds across Australia and New Zealand for the very first time.
