In December 2018, Rei’s single ‘Good Mood’ hit​ #1​ on the ​Spotify United States Viral Chart​, beating out Ariana Grande’s hit ‘thank u, next’ for the top spot. It also charted on the UK, Canada and NZ viral playlists, gaining over ​1.4 million streams.

Rei is stoked to follow this up with a brand new RnB ballad, ​‘Younger’​. In this track, Rei explores the highs and lows of getting older, ultimately encouraging people to live their lives to the fullest while they can. With ​Post Malone​ and ​Khalid​ influences, ​‘Younger’​ is cementing Rei’s place at the ​forefront​ of urban pop in NZ.

‘Younger’​ also drops in the middle of Rei’s busy summer tour schedule, playing shows across the country from Dunedin in the South to Auckland and Coromandel in the North. He has played to thousands​ of people, including a packed party at ​Forsyth​ ​Barr​ ​Stadium​.

‘Younger’​ was produced by ​Rory​ ​Noble​, with additional production from ​Rei​ and platinum-credited producer ​D.​ ​Love​. It was also mixed and mastered by ​Chris​ ​Chetland​ (who has mastered ​Dua​ ​Lipa​ and Bebe​ ​Rexha​).

With ​3 Māori Music Awards​, 2 ​NZ Music Awards​ nominations a ​#1 iTunes Hip Hop​ album and  a ​#1 iTunes World​ music album ​Rei​ is definitely making a name for himself in the music industry.  He also co-won ​Best​ ​Emerging​ ​Manager​ at the 2018 ​MMF​ ​Awards​. 

‘Younger’​ is the latest single from Rei’s upcoming 3rd album, due for release June 2019.
