Rejjie Snow returns to his Dublin neighbourhood in ‘Virgo’ and it looks hard

There's a guy on a lilo in a canal

Rejjie Snow is the kid who grew up in a suburb of Dublin but moved to a couple of different college towns in the US when he secured a football (soccer) scholarship at the age of 17.

Anyway, it’s left him with something of diverse set of roots. Now he lives in London, still visits his grandma regularly back in Ireland but also spends a decent amount of time back in America because of the record deal he’s signed with US label 300.

That doesn’t just come out in his hybrid delivery, but also in the visuals that surround it. He goes back to Dublin in the video for ‘Virgo’ a new track he’s just posted.

In it, Rejjie hangs out in his home city, while kids play basketball while riding a horse, mess about with miniature motor bikes and a bloke rides around on a quad bike wearing a balaclava.

It’s also a departure from the old school hip-hop sound heard on his earlier work, but a summer tune nonetheless.

Rejjie Snow spoke us to us earlier this year about his background, his plans and forthcoming debut album, ‘Dear Annie’.

The cheapest we can afford to do this for is a recurring payment of £4 per month for UK subscribers. If you really start to hate it you can cancel at any time. The same goes for European subscriptions (£7 per month) and the rest of the world (£9 per month).

It’s not just a donation – you’ll receive a physical copy of our magazine through your door, and some extra perks detailed on our subscribe page.
