Arewa, beautiful, caring, determined, ambitious, and flawed. Like any individual she is uniquely her. She goes about her days, gaining new experiences that propel her into becoming such a divine being. A modern day griot, she is. Using her experiences to share stories through art, she evokes emotion of the average being, gracing them with her authenticity. Her stories come from a place of confusion, pain, joy, enlightenment, love, peace; a place she calls home. Accepting all that she is, she has laid the standard for being one of the most motivational and inspiring being to share her vulnerable art to the world. Born in Brooklyn, New York, of Nigerian descent, a true Yoruba goddess lives within her.
Rich Girl by Arewa is a beautiful, soulful and catchy afrobeat song, perfectly produced that will send you on a journey with smooth vocal melodies and catchy electronic beats in the background.
Rich Girl is a successful fusion of afrobeat and soul music, with crisp brass and a clever rhythmic conversation between the chattering drum beats. The great singing of Arewa on this track is definitely a mood changer and will get you in a dancing trance immediately when you turn it on.
Familial and unrefined, Arewa encompasses the fundamental sounds of African heritage in their music. Finding one’s place within a diaspora in connection to the Motherland can be an integral part of exploring afro-beats and world music in hip-hop. This is certainly true of Rich Girl. You’ll be melodically transmuted to a place of music, culture, and afro-bliss.
Arewa combines delicacy with weight in an addictive and unique form for the aptly titled “Rich Girl” beautifully merging the purity and melodic embrace with a swiftly invigorating, summertime reggae atmosphere and a captivating dance beat.
Rich Girl skillfully straddles the line between unconstrained artistic expression and the mainstream building blocks that are known to create waves, fusing engaging music vibes with a contemporary finish that is as crisp and clear as the best of them. There are as many inventive sound-play moments as there are some that feel genuinely lost in the moment — appearing as if it were a live, in-the-moment performance.
“Rich Girl” flows through with a charming realness, beginning with a swiftly uplifting reggae bounce and ending with a vocal and synth gentleness. It is an unmistakable and remarkable track for its natural qualities and the true sense of color and hopefulness it radiates, rather than an in-your-face or humorous effort at a catchy smash.
