Rejjie Snow Previews Album with ‘Dear Annie: Vol. 1’, Announces LP Date

With his debut album Dear Annie on the horizon, Irish rapper Rejjie Snow has released Dear Annie: Vol. 1, an EP featuring  four new songs.

Rejjie Snow, born Alexander Anyaegbunam and formerly known as Lecs Luther,¬†grew up part of “a distinct minority” in Ireland, according to the 2016 Ethnicity and Irish Travellers document. Of the¬†5 million residents in Ireland, they write, only 1.4 percent of them are black. Snow has been making his mark in music since¬†Rejovich,¬†his 2013 debut EP. The EP climbed the charts, eventually rising to being¬†number 1 on iTunes’ hip-hop chart.

Snow didn’t last long when he signed to Honeymoon in 2016, as he quickly shot up to the Kevin Liles-headed 300 Entertainment, the label that Honeymoon is an affiliate of. Liles’ 300 Entertainment boasts a roster that includes¬†Migos, Fetty Wap, Famous Dex, Kirko Bangz, Shy Glizzy, Young Thug and Tee Grizzley¬†to name a few.

The Irishman went on to release The Moon & You in 2017 and is now gearing up for the release of his first full-length album. Dear Annie is currently slated to see a February 16 release. He wanted the album, he told The Fader in May, to feel like a movie.

“My time is yet to come to blossom into who I really want to be,” Snow told Fader. “But I can see it coming, I trust myself more than ever now.”

The cover art for the album is a photo of his friend’s mother when she was 18. “She’s got a big ginger curly afro,” he told them.

To¬†ready his fans for the release, Snow on Wednesday, released¬†Dear Annie: Vol 1, a four-song warmup to¬†his upcoming release. The lead track, “Egyptian Luvr,” boasts production from the electronic producer Kaytranada,¬†Amin√© and Dana Williams. Listen to the smooth track and the other three below:
