Rema Calm Down Lyrics Meaning

Here is Calm Down Lyrics Meaning Rema ft Selena Gomez


Calm Down Lyrics Meaning

Calm down” is a song about Rema- or the singer’s persona in this case, seeking a lady’s love interest. However, the issue here is trust- Which the lady believes Rema does not possess. Therefore, Rema implores her to “Calm Down” and listen to him.

On “Calm down“, Rema tries to allay her fears by telling her that she should “Calm down” and not feel all “Insecure” because:

If I tell you say I love you, no dey do iyanga”

On “Calm down”, Rema expresses that he loves the girl in question and that he wants her. He uses descriptive lyrics to explain how desirable her body is and how he wants it no matter what because he can’t get his mind off her.

He even says he can’t take a “no” from her.

Therefore, it may be right for her to not express so much trust in Rema since her body is his attraction. Which means if he sees another lady with better “qualities“, he would “fall” in love with her too.

Calm down meaning
Rema, Selena Gomez

He says the lady’s body puts him on “Lockdown” because he can’t do anything else but think of her- or her body in this case.

Calm down lyrics meaning shows it is a relatable song because it happens that what most guys observe first before even seeing a lady’s character is her body.

It is the point of attraction for most guys, and in “Calm down“, Rema asserts it is what has put him on “Lockdown“.

Being on “Lockdown” is the default for most guys when they want a lady. They can never “Calm down” while showing the lady that they desire her so much. So yes, Rema’s “Calm down” is very relatable.

Meanwhile, in Rema’s defense, the lady should “Calm down” and trust him because there are actually more girls who want him but he doesn’t like them like he does the girl. He says:

“If you leave me, I no go fall in love again”

“Bandana” Lyrics Fireboy DML ft Asake


Storytelling {Calm Down Lyrics Meaning}

Calm Down Lyrics Meaning shows how Rema employs storytelling to get us interested in the song. He even discusses how he met her in a party and apart from her body, he says her character of being “Mellow” rather than other girls doing “too much” is what attracts him.

He says “other girls commot like chewing gum” but the girl is permanent.

This storytelling plot on Calm down lyrics meaning makes the song hold you down till it ends. If Rema did something else other than this on “Calm down“.

“Calm down” would have been a boring listen. But the storytelling makes it an intriguing one.


Delivery {Rema and Selena Gomez}

Rema calm down lyrics meaning

Both Rema and Selena Gomez delivered a bop!

I mean, apart from the fact that Selena Gomez’s voice is so angelic, her verse on Calm Down is so thrilling that we want to hear more of her.



The only thing that seems like a flaw with Rema’s “Calm down” is incomplete storytelling. Rema tells us literally everything about the wooing process, he even gets detailed to you the point of telling us her dress color- Yellow.

However, at the end of “Calm down“, we are not told if she agreed or not. Did she agree or decline Rema’s love interest? Did Rema get over his supposed lockdown? Our questions on the song are unanswered.

But then that’s the whole point of the song. It’s a proposal
