Hollywood actor Vin Diesel recently shared that ‘Calm Down,’ a catchy song by Rema, is currently his favourite track. During an interview at the European Gala for ‘Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 3’, a keenly anticipated Marvel Studios film set to be released in May, he revealed that his daughter had a significant influence on this pick, since she often sings the song around their home.
Vin Diesel has long been known for his passion for music and he can be seen frequently in his interviews singing his favorite songs, belonging to both old and contemporary musical genres. His love for music has been put to use in the ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise, where he plays the popular character of Dominic Toretto, with the movies being soundtracked by popular artists.

And it is no wonder that his daughter has been such an influence on him, since the song is an upbeat, catchy tune, perfect to lift the spirits, which is why it has been very popular with young people the world over.
In February 2022, Rema’s song ‘Calm Down’ was released as a single and it quickly gained recognition as a standout track on his first album, ‘Rave and Roses’. That same year, in August, Rema collaborated with the famous American singer Selena Gomez to create a remix of the hit song.
Since it came out, “Calm Down” has become very famous. Millions of people have listened to it on different music sites. The song’s success has been helped by its catchy beats, interesting words, and partnership with Selena Gomez. This has brought Rema more praise and attention in the music business.
In addition to its commercial success, Calm Down also made history by becoming the highest-charting Afrobeats song on the prestigious Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Even former US President Barack Obama liked the song and put it on a list of his favorite songs of 2022. This praise from a well-known political and cultural person shows how popular and important the song is to many people. It also makes Rema even more of a rising star in the music world.
