Rema, Selena Gomez ‘Calm Down’ wins Best Afrobeats at MTV Video Music Awards

Selena Gomez and Rema have won a 2023 MTV Video Music Award! The duo was honored with some shiny hardware at the VMAs for their work on “Calm Down,” taking home the award for Best Afrobeats.

It was a high honor in a competitive category, and both Rema and Selena expressed great thanks to everyone who helped make it happen.

The duo was clearly thrilled with their win, but the most excited person in the room may have actually been Selena’s close friend Taylor Swift, who stood and cheered them on while mouthing “I love you” to Sel.

Before their VMAs win, Rema had this to say about working on the song: “‘Calm Down’ is about the events that led me to finding love at the time,” Rema told Pitchfork about the song. “It started at a party where I saw a girl who stood out from other girls, so I felt like shooting my shot. We spoke and danced…but her friends didn’t let me get any closer, which killed the vibe, but afterward when they weren’t there, we stayed in touch and hit it off.”
