Canadian Rising Singer and Songwriter Rêve Breaking Down Boundaries With Latest Song “Skin 2 Skin“
If “SKIN 2 SKIN”’s irresistible hooks seem familiar, it’s because it interpolates the same sample found in 1995 Worldwide #1 dance hit by The Bucketheads, “The Bomb (These Sounds Fall Into My Mind).” “The Bomb” is referred to by many as one of the best dance tracks of all time. Its original sound and melody stem from US band Chicago’s 1979 album track “Street Player”. This exciting nod to the 90s anchors Rêve’s music firmly in an era where a sense of intense liberty and eclecticism was found in its music, art, and culture.
She says: “Skin 2 Skin is a song that celebrates sexual emancipation, self-discovery and acceptance. I think a lot of women are unfortunately criticized or shamed for vocalizing their sexual wants/desires, but this song is about finding the power in that and being unashamed to own who you are and what you need.”
Coupling thought-provoking lyrics with melodies that will emotionally and physically move her audience, Rêve’s music reminds you to embrace the emotions and parts of yourself that you are taught to perceive as flaws in today’s world. After a year of sharing her soulful vocals by teasing mashups and original lyrics across TikTok and garnering over 59k fans and 564k likes, Rêve made her grand entrance in June 2021 via Universal Music Canada and Astralwerks, releasing “Still Dancing.” The major-label debut track garnered over 560K global streams, 165k views on the official music video and continues to climb. Stay tuned for much more to come from Rêve in 2021.
