Grammy winning Ghanaian-British producer, Jae5 has released his debut ‘dimension’ featuring Rema and Skepta.
The song pays “homage to his home country of Ghana where the visuals were shot [and] embodies all that the famed producer stands for. Giving a culturally rich (literally and metaphorically, as the opening scene shows a hand adorned with gold) and modern portrayal of the West-African country [giving] fans a glimpse into its colourful and ornate heritage, customs and vast landscapes,” per a press statement.
“For my first single, I wanted to pull off something that represented me well. It had to be heavily influenced by Afrobeats and the UK urban scene. Skepta & Rema are the perfect combination. Dimension is a meaningful track with a vibe! Skepta as always delivers the maddest verse and Rema on the hook – that guy just isn’t normal! I hope everyone enjoys the track,” says Jae5 born Jonathan Kweku Awote-Mensah.
