Montréal-born, Toronto-based breakout artist Rêve returns with her tantalizing follow-up track “SKIN 2 SKIN” produced by Montreal production duo Banx & Ranx (Dua Lipa, Sia, Little Mix, Sean Paul). The captivating visuals directed by Adem Boutlidja, produced by Anthony Hachez, are out now. 

The colorful pop/EDM track “SKIN 2 SKIN” arrives as Rêve’s second collaboration with Montréal production duo Banx & Ranx, who co-sign her to Universal Music Canada via their label 31 East. If “SKIN 2 SKIN”’s irresistible hooks seem familiar, it’s because it interpolates the same sample found in 1995 Worldwide #1 dance hit by The Bucketheads, “The Bomb (These Sounds Fall Into My Mind).” “The Bomb” is referred to by many as one of the best dance tracks of all time. Its original sound and melody stem from US band Chicago’s 1979 album track “Street Player.” This exciting nod to the 90s anchors Rêve’s music firmly in an era where a sense of intense liberty and eclecticism was found in its music, art, and culture.

“‘SKIN 2 SKIN’ is a song that celebrates sexual emancipation, self-discovery and acceptance,” said Rêve. “I think a lot of women are unfortunately criticized or shamed for vocalizing their sexual wants/desires, but this song is about finding the power in that and being unashamed to own who you are and what you need.”
