Song of the Day: 25 Remix – Realz (ft. Ghetts, Che Lingo & Geovarn)

Following the release of ’25’ earlier this year, which featured the talented R&B star Geovarn, REALZ enlisted grime heavyweight Ghetts and UK rapper Che Lingo as DJ Target premieres the ’25 Remix’, alongside its release.

Initially making his debut in the grime scene, REALZ is an emcee that has successfully navigated genres to become a seasoned artist unconfined by one particular sound. His energetic and skilful wordplay in grime battles is matched equally by his heartfelt introspective lyricism and smooth vocals on the mellow and hazy instrumental of ’25 Remix’.

With crispy snares and the warm footdrum being seasoned with deep echoing chords, Geovarn’s velvet vocals provide the hypnotic hook. Following the lead from REALZ talking with confidence and maturity, Ghetts and Che Lingo also delve in to their lives, thoughts and struggles with intriguing raw honesty to create this grown and thought provoking joint that draws you in to each individual story.
