Reminisce collaborates with Niniola on new single, “Jensimi”

Playing out conversations preceding sexual relation

It’s been three years since premier Indigenous rap act, Reminisce put out his most recent studio album, ‘EL Hadj’, making it the longest time between his projects. He’s remained visible, though, via last year’s socially conscious, smash hit “Ponmile” dominating airplay, and his major role on Kemi Adetiba’s acclaimed ‘King of Boys’ screen feature. The rapper looks like he’s back in album mode, with his new single, “Jensimi” coming out as his second release of the year already.

Switching up from the street-smart ethos of the preceding, Sarz-produced “Oja”, Reminisce showcases his pop sensibilities on “Jensimi”, an Afro-house inspired bop with assistance from the subgenre’s best and biggest purveyor around, Niniola. Over Tempoe’s groovy blend of bouncy Afropop drums and interlocking guitar riffs, both artists play out an iteration of a conversation preceding sexual relations. While Reminisce’s cadence is laidback, he imbues his lyrics admiring his interest’s physique with a palpable level of mischief. Though Niniola’s hook oozes of nonchalance, singing “gba jensimi (take let me rest)”, her lascivious performance listens like she’s been mutually interested all along.
