Rema and Selena Take Home MTV Video Music Award for Best Afrobeats

The 2023 MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) proved to be a memorable night for Rema and Selena Gomez as they emerged victorious, clinching the prestigious award for Best Afrobeats for their chart-topping collaboration, “Calm Down.”

The duo’s remarkable achievement in a highly competitive category was met with elation and gratitude as Rema and Selena took the stage to accept their well-deserved accolade. Both artists expressed heartfelt appreciation to everyone who had played a part in bringing their vision to life.

While Rema and Selena celebrated their triumph, one person who couldn’t contain her excitement was Selena’s close friend, Taylor Swift. Standing and cheering them on, Swift mouthed “I love you” to Selena, showcasing the camaraderie and unwavering support within the music industry.

Reflecting on the creation of “Calm Down” prior to their VMA win, Rema shared the inspiration behind the song. He revealed that it chronicles the events that led him to discover love during that particular period. It all began at a party where Rema noticed a girl who stood out from the crowd, prompting him to take a chance and approach her. Despite their initial connection through conversation and dancing, their potential romance was impeded by the girl’s friends, dampening the atmosphere. However, undeterred by the setback, Rema and the girl managed to stay in touch and foster a genuine connection.

The Best Afrobeats win at the VMAs serves as a testament to the immense musical talents of Rema and Selena Gomez, as well as the global impact of Afrobeats as a genre. Their collaboration embodies the fusion of vibrant rhythms and infectious melodies that have captivated audiences worldwide.

The recognition bestowed upon Rema and Selena at the VMAs marks a significant milestone in their careers, highlighting their exceptional contributions to the music industry. This triumph not only celebrates their individual artistry but also showcases the power of collaboration and the ability to transcend cultural boundaries through music.

As Rema and Selena bask in the glory of their VMA victory, fans eagerly anticipate the future works of these extraordinary artists. Their successful collaboration on “Calm Down” serves as a testament to their artistic prowess and raises anticipation for what they will bring to the music landscape in the coming years.

The Best Afrobeats win at the VMAs solidifies Rema and Selena Gomez as artists who continue to push boundaries, inspire audiences, and leave an indelible mark on the music industry.
