Remy Ma and Lil’ Kim Link Up for “Wake Me Up” Video
Directed by Eif Rivera and shot in the Bronx, the "Wake Me Up" video finds the two rappers rocking some of their best outfits as they spit their bars. Remy first teased the video during an appearance on The Wendy Williams Show.
"Wake Me Up" will serve as the first single from Remy's upcoming album, 7 Winters & 6 Summers. The record will be Remy's first project since signing a new deal with Columbia Records. Earlier this month, the rapper spoke with Zane Lowe about the collaboration, saying she wanted to salute a hip-hop legend.
“I wanted to pay homage to Kim,” Remy said. “I feel like she is the Madonna of the hip-hop world. Her style is iconic and I wanted to pay homage to that. I was like, ‘I want you on this record, but I want you to just be Kim. I want you to be the girl that was squatting down in a leopard thong.'”
Remy also revealed the meaning behind her album title, saying it's a reference to her time in prison. "I couldn't fathom counting in years," she said. "So, if I would look out the window and the trees were green, and say it was 2012, I knew I got three more summers to go."
