Shortly after the release of her first single of 2022, “Somali Rose,” Ria Boss released her debut live album titled Remember.
The 11-track album is an ode to self-reflection and an invitation into Ria Boss’ mind, traveling through familiar pains, losses, truth, and love. Cat Mama explores the theme of love with songs like “Tides,” “Real Love,” Kisses Under The Moon,” “Equal Remix,” and the already released “Somali Rose.”
Remember is Ria Boss’ first body of work after her 2019 THANKGODITSRIA EP series. It is the perfect showcase of her thoughtful songwriting and honeycomb vocals, taking listeners on a journey through her vast melodic range. It is also a testament to Ria Boss’ expressive and profound lyricism, with all songs on the album written by her.
Ria Boss recruits musical director NiiQuaye Aryee and the Ghanaian band, Musical Lunatics, for the live arrangement of all songs on the album except the interlude. Remember features collaborations from Ghanaian rappers Joey B, Ko-Jo Cue, and Ghana-based Cameroonian singer T’neeya. Describing her collaborators as special and perfect, Ria Boss said “every artist understood the assignment and went above and beyond for me.”
