Salaam Remi ft. Akon - One in the Chamber
A multi-platinum certified beatsmith who’s produced hits for everyone from Nas to Fergie, Salaam Remi is preparing to step into the spotlight with the release of his debut studio album, One: In the Chamber. The LP’s latest single and pseudo-title track, One in the Chamber, is a sweeping, mid-tempo jam with a Spaghetti Western vibe. Remi’s cinematic strings, moody guitar riffs and wailing brass back Konvict Muzik head honcho Akon as he laments his decision to get involved with a certain femme fatale. If the lyrical theme were revenge and not heartbreak, I’d be recommending it for retroactive inclusion on the Django Unchained soundtrack. In addition to this atmospheric banger, Salaam’s freshman set will pack appearances by Ne-Yo, Estelle, Stephen Marley and many more notable artists. Watch for the LP to hit record stores and online retailers on Tuesday, September 30. Additionally, fans should stay on the lookout for this single’s official video, scheduled to debut sometime next week.
