Remy Ma & Lil' Kim's 'Wake Me Up'
Remy Ma joins forces with Lil' Kim on her first single on Columbia Records.

Remy Ma takes no prisoners on “Wake Me Up,” the first single from her sophomore LP. A collaboration with the legendary Lil’ Kim, the hypnotic banger is an old-school groove with ice-cold bars and lashings of attitude. There’s nothing pop or crossover about it, which makes it a breath of fresh air in a market oversaturated with toothless bops. “I wanted to pay homage to Kim,” the rapper told Beats 1 Radio. “I feel like she is like the Madonna of the hip-hop world to me. Her style is iconic, and I wanted to show homage and pay homage to that.”

That also comes through in the video. Directed by Eif Rivera and filmed on location in the Bronx, Remy & Kim’s visual serves looks and gritty luxury. The Queen Bee pioneered outrageous hip-hop fashion, so it’s only fitting that both ladies look fly and (rap) battle-ready. “Wake Me Up” could surprise everyone and cause serious damage on the charts. It’s already the most-added song on urban radio and this video will give it another burst of momentum. Remy’s 7 Winters & 6 Summers album is due in 2018. Watch the hip-hop royals in action up top.
