The album’s standard version has Divine, Hold Me  Soundgasm, Dirty, Time n Affection, Calm Down (original) and many others.

Rave and Roses reached No. 3 on the Billboard World Albums Chart in 2023 and also performed remarkably in countries including Belgium, Canada, and Nigeria in 2022.

Rema and Selena Gomez’s Calm Down reached 700 million streams on YouTube as of November 7, 2023.

The singer, who has swept many awards, including the Billboard Music Awards for Best Afrobeats, is on a long break throughout December. He announced the cancellation of all scheduled shows during the festivities, saying he needed to attend to his health.
