Grammy nominee Asake, seemingly inspired by Rema, has joined forces with American singer-songwriter H.E.R. on the remix of his well-accepted single, Lonely At The Top. 

The tune, released on Wednesday, November 15, is expected to leave a lasting impression on listeners just like the original song did.

Both performers tap into the energy of the original recording to polish up the rhythm, as H.E.R. brings on her soulful vibes and vocals. 

Asake opens the verse with his smooth delivery before his counterpart takes her turn on the impeccable composition of the new project which is currently available on streaming platforms.

The Sungba crooner follows in the footsteps of Calm Down hitmaker Rema who introduced Selena Gomez on the remix of his smash hit which peaked No3. on the Billboard Top 100 chart.

Perhaps, Asake would be hoping the remix would be able to break some records with the coming on board of the American R&B singer.

Lonely At The Top, a track off his Work of Art album, was released in June 2023. The single recorded millions of streams and topped the charts in his home country, Nigeria.

Asake’s rise from a budding artiste to a global sensation has been described as inspiring, as he continues to break new ground in the industry.

Gabriella Sarmiento Wilson, known professionally as H.E.R. has won five Grammy Awards, along with nominations for a Golden Globe Award, three American Music Awards, and four Billboard Music Awards.

Her stage name, H.E.R., which she adopted in 2016, is an acronym for “Having Everything Revealed”.

In 2016, she released her debut extended play (EP) H.E.R., and followed up with four other EPs.

She received five nominations at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards, including her first wins for Best R&B Performance for the single Best Part (with Daniel Caesar), as well as Best R&B Album.

Her second compilation album, I Used to Know Her (2019), also received five Grammy Award nominations, including Album of the Year and Song of the Year for the single Hard Place.

In 2021, she was awarded her third Grammy Award for Song of the Year with her George Floyd protest-inspired single, I Can’t Breathe.

That same year, her song Fight for You, released for the film Judas and the Black Messiah, won the Academy Award for Best Original Song and later earned the Grammy Award for Best Traditional R&B Performance the following year.

Her debut studio album, Back of My Mind was released in June 2021.

In 2022, she won the Children’s and Family Emmy Award for her contributions to Barack and Michelle Obama’s animated children’s series, We the People.
