REJJIE SNOW releases the video for new single VIRGO (FEAT. PELL)!

Rejjie Snow today debuts his latest track ‘Virgo’, featuring New Orleans rapper Pell, and its accompanying video. Premiered by DJ Target on MistaJam’s Radio 1Xtra show, the song is the latest to be taken from the Dublin-born artist’s eagerly awaited debut album ‘Dear Annie’ . Produced by Rahki, who also executive produced ‘Dear Annie’ , Virgo is available to stream and download now. 

“Virgo is a track I wrote about feeling the pressures of trying to be a star,” says Rejjie. “But knowing that you put those pressures mostly on yourself, because someone will have your back no matter what”. 

Directed by Julien Soulier from Partizan, the video for the track follows Rejjie through the streets of his hometown Dublin and depicts summertime in a concrete playground. Filmed on O-Devaney Estate, one of the last standing estates in Dublin with only five families left living there, Rejjie says of the video: “It’s the world we live in. Colourful and magical in it’s own way. Almost like a music video even though most days be darker than bright”. 
    
Steve Wood, who produced the video, says: “The estate of O’Daveney Gardens in central Dublin is about to be demolished and the remaining families moved. This place holds a lot of memories. Despite a reputation for crime and violence, we felt none of that and were welcomed by the locals who were happy for us to feature their home and families in Rejjie’s video. The whole neighborhood took part, which is the real life back drop of the video”.

Rejjie Snow has been rhyming since he was a kid in north Dublin – moving to Georgia at age 17 on a soccer scholarship, before switching from sports to the mic full time to drop his first mixtape, Rejovich in 2013. The five track set introduced the world to his surreal style and villainous eloquence. Now Rejjie’s debut album, ‘Dear Annie’ , is on the way.
It’s executive produced by Rahki, who won a Grammy with Kendrick Lamar, and it’s already given us a handful of impressively (though not unexpectedly) diverse gifts. There’s the moody G-funk of ‘Crooked Cops’, which Rejjie wrote after watching police violence explode in the U.S., and the thrilling ‘Flexin”, a hypermodern trap-addled bleak-banger full of unapologetic braggadocio. The chiming ‘D.R.U.G.S.’ already surpassed 4 million YouTube streams and its followup, ‘Pink Beetle’, was named Hottest Record in the World by BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac. And, rather than retreat amidst growing anticipation, Rejjie went ahead and dropped a full-length mixtape on the way to releasing his LP: 2017’s ‘The Moon & You’ , an experimental beast of a different stripe that, despite a Joey Bada$$ cameo, puts him more squarely in the camp of genre-less auteurs like Shabazz Palaces, Anderson .Paak, and Thundercat.
