Need a new track for your work out playlist? Well, Rei made one just for you! Turn it up, get moving and shake off any
anxiety by getting your blood pumping. With obvious throwbacks to the late 80s and 90s, you might even break out the old
lycra bodysuit for this one...
‘Sweat’ follows up the success of Rei’s new Te Reo album ‘Hoea’ (released June 26th). ‘Sweat’ features Rei’s good friend and frequent collaborator Tāne aka Tane Williams, well known for playing Ali on Shortland
Street. ‘Sweat’ is the latest single from Rei’s upcoming English album, due for release in 2020.
2020 has been a difficult time for artists, but Rei has kept himself busy. He featured on the #1 lockdown track ‘Stay’’ as well as making various content for Māori TV, live streams for Hallensteins, his own ‘Tutū Tuesdays’ live
songwriting sessions and even made 3 music videos. One was a comedy track called ‘Miss My Homies’ with Mikey Mayz and Tane The Forest Kid. Another was ‘Rāpeti’, a cheeky track about his super busy summer of touring… And his dance track Holy Hecka has also taken off in the NZ
dance community, spawning multiple dance videos on social media. All of this from the comfort of his Waterview whare. Oh
yeah, and his Spotify just clocked over 5 million streams...
